Career and Family Issues in Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease (pp. 169-175) $0.00
Authors:  (S. Reutens, C. Peisah and C. Quadrio)
Aim: Summarise the literature to date concerning carer burden and available services for patients with early-onset AD (EOAD).
Method: Literature search using terms ―early onset dementia‖ or ―early onset Alzheimer‘s disease‖ plus ―carer‖. A case is presented to illustrate some of the carer and family issues and offer practical guidelines for management of these issues.
Results: Carers of people with EOAD may suffer an increased burden of stress due to the longer time to diagnosis and issues relating to the younger age of EOAD sufferers and life stage issues of their carers.
Conclusion: An increasing number of people will suffer EOAD. Early detection and support are required for this group, their families and carers.
