Younger Onset Dementia Association Inc

About Us

The Younger Onset Dementia Association Inc (YODA Inc) was established in June 2010 to support and inform people about younger onset dementia. This includes people living with the disease, carers, family and friends as well as interested community members, health professionals and key organisations. We aim to ensure issues and concerns are identified and advanced, whilst maintaining effective relationships with key policy makers, service providers and stakeholders.

Younger onset dementia falls into a grey area in terms of funding and service supports - because the person is under 65, should they be supported by disability services or should they be supported through aged care services, given that dementia is seen as an age-related illness? Current government funding for services means that people with younger onset dementia are not adequately supported because they dont fit neatly into the service description "box"!


This organisation is reliant on memberships and donations for its survival. If you would like to support us in our quest to provide information, support and advice to those impacted on by younger onset dementia, whilst raising the profile of the disease and its impact, then please become a member of the Association or make a donation.
