My dad has just last week been diagnosed with behavioural variant fronto-temporal dementia. An uncommon form apparently that the GP had no experience of and the incontinence nurse he was also seeing had not heard of. GP referring him to a psychiatrist but I've been offered no information, advice or anything other than I have found online and his appointment not through yet. I'm a little lost really. Naturally i am upset by the diagnosis but it does explain his changed personality and strange behaviour. Is there somewhere I can go for practical information on support for him, he has moved into sheltered accommodation this weekend and I am arranging for his meals to be delivered. What should I expect from his condition in the near future? He's driving, should he be? The GP never mentioned it. My nan has "regular" dementia (sorry for generalism but I don't know medical term) but she is more than 20 years older than my dad ( they are not related) and in residential care. Any info on where I can turn would be grateful.
