What is the difference between frontotemporal dementia and Alzhiemer's disease?
My husband has been clinically diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. He does not have any personality disorders, but a lot with language. How is this different from Alzheimer's disease? I think he has a lot of Alzhiemer's disease symptoms to. Can anyone explain the difference or send advise?
Dementia is a very broad category. Frontotemporal and Alzheimer's are a few "types" of dementia. Different types of dementia depend on the clinical process. Frontotemporal is your husband's clinical process. Alzheimer's is another clinical process.
The theme is that they are all types of dementia and often will present the same. If you want to learn more, you can go to www.alz.org They should break down the different types of dementia.
Hope this helps.
