AFTD Program Director and Couple Living with FTD Present Webinar on FTD Care
AFTD Program Director Sharon Denny joined FTD advocates Brandt and Marie Henderson to present a webinar on January 16, sponsored by the Administration for Community Living (ACL). During the webinar, Denny gave a general overview of FTD and its subtypes, and explained the unique challenges faced by both persons diagnosed with FTD and their care partners. The Hendersons spoke about their personal experience with FTD: Brandt was diagnosed with behavioral variant FTD in 2011; his wife, Marie, is his care partner. The three presenters spoke about care strategies and approaches that can benefit both the person diagnosed and their care partner.
