Frontotemporal dementia affects regions of the brain that cause aberrant changes in behavior and emotion.
Loved ones face great challenges, first dealing with the puzzling symptoms and efforts to get an accurate diagnosis, and later facing the fact that the personality of the person they love has changed dramatically.
The disease often leaves families isolated and challenged by health care issues.
Worth watching to the end.
