Welcome to the Australian Frontotemporal Dementia Association (AFTDA)
We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to raising awareness and providing support to people living with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), either those with a diagnosis and their families, friends, and carers. FTD is a young-onset dementia, typically occuring between 45 and 65 years of age. Many thousands of Australians are thought to be suffering from this condition.

The presentations will be geared to families living with FTD, carers and health professionals who want to learn about FTD.
