Awareness Cards

In an effort to help people with FTD and their care partners when in public settings, AFTD has created two sets of “awareness cards” – one for care partners and one for those diagnosed with behavioral FTD or primary progressive aphasia. These cards let anyone whom you may encounter in public – servers, receptionists, law enforcement officials, etc. – know that the language ability and behavior of you or your loved one may be altered due to the disease.


The cards are available for download and use as appropriate. They are set up in business-card-size format for conveniently carrying in a wallet.
