Younger onset dementia and the NDIS

Supporting people with Younger Onset Dementia in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is yet to roll out in Tasmania for those aged 25 to 64 years.

Details of when the NDIS is expected to roll out for this age group in Tasmania can be found here: Tasmania NDIS roll out timeline.

Alzheimer’s Australia Tasmania’s Younger Onset Dementia Key Workers are available to talk to you about how they can help you prepare for the NDIS as it rolls out in your area.

Contacting a younger onset dementia key worker about the NDIS

If you are an existing Younger Onset Dementia Key Worker Program participant contact your younger onset dementia key worker to learn more.

If you are not currently participating in the program, the best way to access the Younger Onset Dementia Key Worker Program is to call the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
