My husband tried to put the dog harness on the wrong end, cannot follow instructions or figure out simple tasks like where to put the battery on the trimmer, etc.

vegaslady ~ Thanks for good info. In answer to your question, no, he doesn't drive anymore. Thankfully, the neurologist told him he shouldn't, so it didn't have to be me!

I checked some references on Google to see what experts had to say. Aricept or other acetylcholinase inhibitors would not likely be helpful for someone with ftd. Namenda may show some benefit, but it is not clear yet. You can ask his doctor if he wants to try, but I don't know if it will help with executive functions if it is ftd.

Check the website for UCSF neurology department. It has a list of meds recommended or not for FTD. The ftdsupportforumdotcom has many threads on medication. More importantly, right now you should be restricting access to power tools and other dangerous items. There's an endless amount of physical dsmage he could do to himself and your home if he's deteriorated this far. Others have experience have with this problem of having their LO not recognize that they don't know what the heck they're doing any more. Does he still drive?
