Nationally renowned dementia expert Teepa Snow takes on Frontotemporal Dementias in a new caregiving DVD.
“Understanding Frontotemporal Dementias (FTD)” is the 12th dementia DVD released by the Pines of Education Institute of Southwest Florida.
Frontotemporal Dementias, an umbrella term for a range of disorders affecting the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, are particularly challenging for families and professional caregivers.
Odd, often impulsive behaviors and a potential loss of language are just a few of the symptoms causing frustration and anxiety.
“There isn’t a lot of information available for caregivers about Frontotemporal Dementias,” says Teepa Snow, a North Carolina native and dementia expert with over 30 years of experience.
“They might think they understand Alzheimer’s, but this isn’t Alzheimer’s. So this training helps people better understand why people with FTDs are doing what they’re doing, and more importantly, how we can help instead of getting in the way.”
