This year we found out that mom has Frontotemporal Dementia. It is early onset (can be as early as 40!) so one that we were not familiar with or even thought to consider at her age. She has been asking her family doctor about her concerns for years and every visit they assured her it was just age. For years it was missed and although there is nothing we could have done to change the outcome or slow down the progression, as a family, had we known we would have handled the situation differently.
The webinars provided by the Alzheimer Society of Calgary have been my greatest source of information and I'm happy to do my walk on their behalf to help them keep up their amazing work.
