Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Early-Onset Dementia (also known as younger-onset) affects people younger than age 65. If you or your loved one was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's Disease or a related dementia before the age of 65, you may consider yourself part of the early-onset community. Families living with early-onset dementia have unique needs and challenges, and can benefit from education and information that is targeted to their age group.
The Longitudinal Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease Study (LEADS) and the Alzheimer’s Association are pleased to announce the 2022 Early-Onset Dementia Family Conference for patients, families and caregivers impacted by early-onset dementia. The conference will be held virtually on Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9th 2022 from 10:00am-2:00pm CST on each day. It will offer attendees information and opportunities to share insights and experiences with each other as well as with researchers in the field. On the second day of the conference, care and support will be provided to any interested participants.
The Family Conference is free and open to the public. This is an online conference that is intended for individuals who have early onset mild cognitive impairment or dementia and the care partners, family and friends who support those living with early onset dementia as well as researchers and those in the care community. We value your privacy and will ensure that everyone attending will be given the opportunity to maintain anonymity at the conference.
