Living with frontotemporal dementia can be difficult. Younger people affected by the disease may have jobs and have family and financial responsibilities.
As well as supporting the person with FTD, it’s important that family and carers can also access practical and emotional support for themselves.
Rare Dementia Support runs national groups providing support and information for people with FTD, their families and carers. These are the Frontotemporal Dementia Support Group, the Primary Progressive Aphasia Support Group, and the Familial Frontotemporal Dementia Support Group.
More information can be found online at www.raredementiasupport.org or by ringing 0203 325 0828.
Online information about FTD can also be found at the FTD talk website.
You can also speak to your doctor or nurse for advice. Admiral Nurses, who are dementia specialist nurses can be contacted on 0800 888 6678 or email@example.com
For more information, you can also contact Alzheimer’s Research UK’s Dementia Research Infoline on 0300 111 5111 or firstname.lastname@example.org
