Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia
Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease
Those with younger-onset Alzheimer’s face unique challenges when it comes to family, work, and finances. Also, the stigma associated with younger-onset can have an impact on their quality of life. In the 2020 reauthorization of the Older Americans Act, Congress included provisions of the Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease Act that allow individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias under the age of 60 to receive nutritional services and caregiver respite support. To learn more about the provisions and services in your area, contact your local Area Agency on Aging and Disability at 1-866-836-6678.
If you have questions about services in your area, please reach out to your local Area Agency on Aging and Disability (AAAD) at 1-866-836-6678 or submit a request for information online through our Information Request Tool.
