Twelve months ago my wife was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Dementia at the age of 64. So far as I have managed to find out, this is the upper end of the age range for this form of dementia which accounts for a very small percentage of dementia cases. Whilst remaining very fit physically and articulate, she has significant cognitive impairment making genuine conversation impossible, has become childish, impulsive and very self-centered. A far cry from the person who used to design and make teaching aids for children with learning difficulties and could project manage the family through almost anything. We are fortunate to have the support of our two daughters and families who live close but I am finding it very difficult to cope with the enormous change. The support groups we have spoken thus far are dealing with the more familiar types of dementia and an age group in their late 70s and 80s. Does anyone have any experience FTD with whom I amy be able to share experiences?
