An extensive search was made for people with presenile dementia (PSD) still under 65 years living in the Southampton Health District.
Twenty-seven sufferers were identified.
People with PSD had a high degree of cognitive, behavioural and self-care disabilities and carers showed considerable stress.
Services were received from the old age psychiatry team, and to a lesser extent from social services and the Community Rehabilitation Unit.
Community psychiatric nurses were the commonest form of support.
The four sufferers in receipt of no services were less impaired.
Identified needs included more counselling and advice and specific provision for the more physically active sufferer.
