Think It’s Alzheimer’s? Think Again: Olivia Goldring


Not all dementia is Alzheimer’s. For people under 60, the most common form is actually FTD. If you or someone you know experience unexplained changes in behavior, language or movement, it could be FTD.

About Olivia Goldring: Olivia was just eight years old when her mother, Rachel, was diagnosed with FTD at age 45; she was just 53 when she died. Throughout Rachel’s FTD journey and beyond, Olivia has worked to help young children and teenagers cope with a parent’s diagnosis. In 2016, she spoke about her family’s experiences at AFTD’s inaugural Hope Rising gala event in New York City.
