Hope for the future starts with you

Bhupendra is living with frontotemporal dementia, but his wife Urvashi still has hope for the future. And it’s all thanks to the vital research you’re helping to fund...

There is still no cure for frontotemporal dementia, nor any other form of the condition. That’s why your support for our research is so vital. You’re giving people like Urvashi hope for a future free from dementia – and as the work of Prof. James Rowe shows, a life-changing discovery might not be as far away as we think.

“The cure is in sight”

The support of people like you allows our neurologist, Prof James Rowe, to lead a huge research effort into frontotemporal dementia. He and his team are striving to reduce the symptoms so people can get back to living in a way that’s closer to what they would want for themselves.

Early results show that their trial treatments are already making a difference to quality of life in people living with dementia. And with support from a team of scientists and kind people like you, Prof. Rowe believes that “the cure is in sight”. So, thank you for being part of that team, and making a cure possible.

Together, we’ll find life-changing treatments sooner

Finding a cure will take a combined effort from a large community of scientists – with your support, Alzheimer’s Research UK’s collaborative global network of research teams are in an excellent position to make it happen.

Let’s get there sooner. Please share this story so others will see how their support can bring hope to people like Urvashi.

What is frontotemporal dementia?

A disease that affects the front and sides of the brain, causing dementia — often in people aged between 45 and 65.

It can have a devastating effect on:

  • personality & behaviour
  • understanding of language
  • mental ability
  • memory

“Like landing on the moon, finding a cure is going to take a massive and sustained effort from a very big international team. But it is in sight.”

Prof. James Rowe, Director of Cambridge Centre for Frontotemporal Dementia and Related Disorders
