The purpose of this Guide is to identify key resources to assist people diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease to lead full and engaged lives. Early onset Alzheimer's disease strikes people before the age of 65, often in the prime of their lives. Many are unable to continue to work, to manage their legal and financial affairs or to drive. Memory loss and mild cognitive decline associated with the disease can lead to a loss of self-confidence and social isolation. However promising research and a new approach to tailoring services and support to the individual needs of people with early onset Alzheimer's disease offers hope for the future.
