Even in the best of times, we look to friends and family for their perspectives and for mutual support. These human needs become even more important when we’re hit with the cruelty of FTD and the poor understanding of it among our regular networks.

Caregiver Support Groups
Sharing with people who understand the challenges you face caring for someone with FTD can make a world of difference. This is where you will find information on a growing network of local and telephone caregiver support groups.
Day Programs, Home Health Care and Respite
Caregivers don’t always realize the importance of arranging breaks for their own well-being. Adult day programs and home health care can provide vital services for your loved one, as well as provide you with time to renew and reenergize.
Connecting with Others
No one wants to face FTD alone, but not everyone is interested in structured support options. We can help you find a way to connect with others that fits you, including meeting individuals informally, joining on-line groups or social networking options.
Patient Support Programs
Increasingly, people diagnosed with FTD are looking for information and support tailored to their needs. Some programs are starting and more are needed. Help AFTD develop and share resources for patients.
