Maryland Social Security Disability Lawyers: Long-Term Effects of Frontotemporal Dementia
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), also known as Pick’s Disease, is a degenerative brain disorder caused by progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal or temporal lobes of the brain. There is no known cure and the effects, which worsen over time, can be physically and emotionally devastating for patients and their families. Symptoms of the disease include communications problems, difficulty making decisions, memory loss, decreased coordination and repetitive behavior. Sadly, most patients with FTD will eventually require 24-hour care.
