AFTD – The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration

I volunteer with the Association for FTD, which has proven to be a reliable resource for FTD information and keeps its information current.

The Alzheimer’s Association maintains information on FTD and offers a comparative between the two disorders.

May Clinic Logo

Frontotemporal dementia – Symptoms and causes – Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic I have always found to be thorough and accurate in their explanations of symptoms and care.

Frontotemporal disorders | National Institute on Aging (

The National Institute on Aging has recently adopted information on FTD that I have found to be comprehensive and easy to understand.

Frontotemporal Degeneration – NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders) (

The National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD) leans a bit toward very clinical evaluations and technical language (a bit of a heavier read) but another excellent source.

60 Minutes did a special on FTD with three different couples (two of whom I have met in person). It gives a brief look into both the language and behavior variants.
