Young-onset Alzheimer dementia: a comparison of Brazilian and Norwegian carers' experiences and needs for assistance

Objectives: Although dementia typically occurs in older people, it can also emerge in people aged younger than 65 years in the form of young‐onset dementia, the most common type of which is Alzheimer's disease (AD).
