Carer Support
Carer Support

A core role for the AFTDA is to advocate for support services for carers of those with FTD.

The AFTDA is currently working with Dementia Support Australia to develop and run a nationwide network of support groups called “Carer Conversations.” Carer Conversations for FTD carers will run monthly and be facilitated by experienced health professionals and dementia consultants. They are planned to commence around September 2024.

If you are caring for someone with FTD we are keen to hear from you. We invite you to lodge an expression of interest in the Carer Conversations via this link.

Or visit the Dementia Support Australia website to express your interest.

Some of the Carer Conversations will be conducted face to face, some will be virtual (via Zoom or similar), and some groups might use a hybrid model whereby people participate both in person and online. The groups will be located in most capital cities, and if you live in a rural or remote area, there is likely to be a “virtual” group available to you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at AFTDA if you want more information on Carer Conversations. You can also call Dementia Support Australia on 1800 699 799.

Separately from the Dementia Support Australia conversations,
Dementia Australia also conducts FTD Carer Support Groups.
To connect with these groups, please call the
Dementia Australia helpline on 1800 100 500.
