This website is run by an individual in a voluntary capacity for carers/relatives/friends of younger people with dementia, aka working age dementia
("WAD", those aged under age 65), in the Nottinghamshire area. In Notts there are around 5,600 people diagnosed with dementia with an estimated further
Around 260 of those diagnosed have WAD.*
My name is Nikola (age 41) and I previously cared for my husband who had FTD (Fronto Temporal Dementia).
I had found useful and relevant information at times difficult to obtain and hope this website may benefit others.
I am no expert on services by any means, but am hopeful that through this website, we can at least
have a forum in which to contact each other.
The links page is a good place to find extended information with hopefully some detailed expert input. However, one of your best sources of
contact will be the Nottingham branch of the Alzheimers Society.
If you are interested in making contact with me or others locally - please contact me (see
contact page). A quick email just to say hello even, would be nice.
