Sharon Hall is a caregiver for her 96 year old mother who has dementia and her 66 year old husband who has Frontal Temporal Dementia.  She received the "Advocate of the Year" at the 2017 National Caregiving Conference and will be a presenter at this years conference. 

Sharon joined me to discuss her personal story of the challenges she experienced in getting an accurate diagnosis for her husband after he began to exhibit troubling behaviors.  Frontal Temporal Dementia (FTD) is often misdiagnosed and attributed to someone going through a "mid-life" crisis.

Through her path to diagnosis, Sharon now advocates for caregivers and provides excellent insight into this illness and advice about where to seek help.  She also hosts "Talking FTD with Geri" podcast on www.caregiving.com and leads an FTD Care Chat every Monday and Saturday at 7:00 PM EST.
