I am a caregiver.


My name is Naomi and I have been a caregiver and staunch, advocate for my mum, since her dementia diagnosis in 2007.

In commemoration of a decade of caregiving,  I decided to start sharing my experiences with this disease, as well as learn as much as I can in terms of education, prevention and research developments.

For the last 10 years, I have been unable to find anyone that could identify with my unique struggles as a young adult caregiver. Therefore, I created this forum where young caregivers can discuss, share and get support from people that understand firsthand what they are going through.


After all, 
who will talk if you do not?


To engage, enable and empower people living with dementia and their caregivers


Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60-70 per cent of cases of dementia, but there are many other conditions that can cause symptoms of dementia. Approximately 50 million people are currently living with dementia worldwide.


Build a community of people affected by dementia working together to advocate for improvements to the legal, health care and political systems


Improve the quality of live for those living with dementia and their care partners 

Enhance public awareness of dementia and the lack of supports currently in place

Enhance care quality and efficiency to lessen the undue burden on caregivers

Expand resources and supports by engaging in conversations with policy makers
