Behaviour Variant Frontotemporal dementia (FTD)
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a complex progressive condition of the brain primarily affecting behaviour, personality and language.
FTD occurs less often than other types of dementia e.g. Alzheimer’s Disease or vascular dementia. It is generally diagnosed in people between the ages of 45 and 65 and affects women and men equally. Because the illness occurs mainly in younger people, issues around employment and dependants are often significant.
