Life expectancy is slightly longer for those with FTD, ranging from 3-17 years after being diagnosed. The late stages of FTD include symptoms such as, a reduction in speech, loss of muscle movement, and inability to make motor responses to verbal commands.
Hospice care is end-of-life care, this would be an option if your loved one is in the final stages of FTD; however, consulting with a Geriatric Care Manager may be of an interest to you. They can better assist in what care is needed. They may suggest a care facility that offers Dementia care services in your area.
