2019 NADRC Webinar:
Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Disease: Exploring the Emotional Experience and the Importance of Community

Living with Alzheimer’s disease is a challenge, changing life for both the person with the disease and their family. But what if someone diagnosed with this disease was in their early 60s, 50s or even as young as in their 30s? Younger onset Alzheimer’s disease affects people ages 65 years old or younger. Though the exact number of people with younger onset is unknown, the impact of living with Alzheimer’s in midlife is great. For more than 15 years, the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Chicago has offered Without Warning, a large support program for families living with younger onset Alzheimer’s disease. This presentation is informed by the experiences of Without Warning members. The web seminar will examine the emotional journey of younger onset Alzheimer’s disease and the importance of community in providing support.
