The New York Memory Center in New York City will be hosting an event titled “When It’s NOT Alzheimer’s” to discuss lesser-known dementias, including frontotemporal degeneration (FTD).
This meeting, which is for family caregivers to persons living with a cognitive impairment, will be from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. A reservation is required for this free event.
Not all dementia diagnoses are alike. While Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, the next most common forms are Lewy body dementia, vascular dementia, frontotemporal degeneration, and mixed dementia. Event speakers will present information about these lesser-known diseases and answer questions.
Corey Esannason, Middle Atlantic Regional Coordinator Volunteer for the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) will speak concerning FTD. Additional presenters will be from the Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center and CaringKind.
To RSVP, please call (718) 499-7701 or email Megan Christ, LMSW, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
