What's the difference between "Early-Stage" and "Younger Onset"?
“Early-stage" refers to people, regardless of age, who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or related disorders, and are in the beginning stages of the disease, while “Younger Onset” refers to those diagnosed before 65 years of age.
The Alzheimer’s Association offers education, support groups and opportunities for volunteering and socialization to those living in the early stage or younger onset of Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
