Hi... I'm looking for other folks out there whose partner or spouse has been diagnosed with (or has symptoms of) FTD. Primarily interested in connecting with people of the sandwich generation that might still have children at home, still work, and may have elderly parents to take care of.

My spouse is dx with Alzheimer's, we're late 50's. My dad and his parents are still around. His parents just moved in with a brother, and my dad lives independently. My kids are grown, but my son still lives with us, as he's having trouble getting any traction in adulthood (and I appreciate the help). I've been working at home through Covid, but my employer wants us back at least half time starting next month.
