Information for young people

Young people may be worried about someone in the family who has dementia, or perhaps one of their friends has a relative who has dementia.

Young people often keep their emotions bottled up inside. Learning about dementia and what happens to the brain when people start to lose their memories and get confused, will help them to talk about it with their families, friends or someone from Jersey Alzheimer's Association.

Having a family member with dementia can change the whole family structure and it is important that young people are involved in decision making and other family discussions.
