Younger onset dementia program

Join our community

If you are aged between 45 and 65 years, and have been diagnosed with dementia, you are invited to join our supportive community.

We support you to enjoy life and stay active, healthy and social through a range of activities.

Our aim is to have some fun while boosting your well-being and independence. Join the group on a Monday or Friday.

Costs

There is no fee to attend the program, however you will need to buy your own lunch and refreshments.

Special events, outings or activities may also incur a cost but we will keep you informed of these.

Get started

If you live in the Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick, Botany Bay or City of Sydney Local Government Area and:

  • Are aged between 45 and 65
  • Were diagnosed with dementia before the age of 65
  • Have a letter from your doctor confirming diagnosis
  • Can manage your own personal care and administer your own medication (if required)
  • Are able to walk independently
