Hi everyone,

One of our Dementia Support Workers in Manchester has asked us to pass on the below :)

Stockport older people's mental health team have created a series of videos on what frontotemporal dementia is, featuring stories from carers of people living with it.

These videos are in three parts. Each one features the stories of carers of people with frontotemporal dementia, along with advice from our experts. Click on the links to watch them on YouTube:


You can also visit the NHS Pennine Care website >here<

We hope you find these useful.

These have been really helpful. Is there anything which helps a partner whose OH suffering with FTD is in a CH ?

I watch all three videos :confused: and as a person how has been living with dementia for over 22 years in 1999 diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and after a PET brain scan in 2003 was diagnosed with Frontal-temporal-dementia a further SPECT brain scan was carried out in 2004 these videos definitely do not in any way represent how FTD has affected my life I continues working for 8 years I still drive today after 22 years in fact during past week drove 350 mile round trip to airport and possible 400 + miles in Majorca last week but I’m always positive I’m never worried about what other people think or say I know I will never get to where you need to go in life if I listen to others.

This is only my opinion based on my own Dementia experiences :cool::)
