The AFTDA is a registered non-profit carer support orgamisation with a mission to:
►Establish and support Australian carer support groups for frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and related younger-onset dementias.
►Provide information, education, and support to those diagnosed with FTD and related disorders, their carers and families.
►Educate and work with clinicians to reduce diagnostic delays and improve outcomes of individuals with FTD.
►Advocate with government, peak dementia bodies and organisations for affordable quality care services for people with FTD, and support research and treatments in FTD.
►Increase public awareness about FTD and the needs of those with lived experience of FTD.
►Facilitate the international exchange of ideas with FTD researchers and clinicians.
We want a world where FTD is understood, effectively diagnosed, treated, cured, and ultimately prevented.
The Australian Frontotemporal Dementia Association (AFTDA) shared similar goals with the AFTD in the USA.
