A younger person is much more likely to have a rare form of dementia that can cause problems not only with memory but movement, vision, language and personality.  Their dementia is also more likely to be hereditary.  This can make diagnosis more challenging and when a diagnosis is made the person often has different needs and requires some different support to someone who is older.
