Voices of Individuals: Challenges and Experiences of bvFTD

What Is This Study About?

This observational study is designed to learn more about what it is like to live with, or be at high risk of developing, behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD). The study will involve two to three telephone calls, the longest lasting 30 to 60 minutes, to help investigators learn as much as possible about living with bvFTD in order to guide future research, resource development, and clinical practice. During the telephone interviews, participants will be asked basic questions about themselves, as well as questions to assess thinking.
