FTD support group meets monthly

The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration Support Group will meet the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at Redemption Christian Church, Loogootee.

The group’s mission is to bring help and hope to those affected by FTD by providing local support. The group will share the most accurate and current information about FTD and provide a space to share resources and peer support for care partners. 

FTD is the most prevalent form of dementia for individuals younger than 60 in the U.S; roughly 60 percent of cases occur in people 45 to 64 years old. The hallmark of FTD is a gradual, progressive decline in behavior and/or language, with memory usually relatively preserved.

The AFTD is the leading nonprofit working to improve the quality of life of people affected by FTD in the United States, and to drive research to a cure. Learn more at www.theaftd.org, or via www.facebook.com/TheAFTD or twitter.com/AFTDCure.
