My name is Jen. My husband, Keith, was diagnosed with Frontaltemporal Degeneration, a rare form of early onset dementia, in 2019, but we had been struggling to discover what was wrong for over 5 years before that. His personality and behavior changes caused a lot of problems in our family, but I knew in my heart that he was sick and refused to give up until someone could tell me what was happening. I’m hoping to share some stories from our daily life that show what living with dementia is like, especially in a family setting.
We have 7 children, currently aged 25-10, and my husband is still living at home.
