About Lydia’s FTD House
We started this site because one day in the hospital Lydia managed to get out the sentence “I need to be successful.” Another time she said, “I can’t afford this.” Recently, my sister said, “I need to go to the interview.”
Lydia needs help with the normal activities of daily living, so she’s not going to be able to work to pay for her medical care. Or, her housing expenses.
Because of the tragedy of her experience, we’d like to help other families so they don’t to go through what Lydia and our family has had to go through.
If we could add two questions to the Mini Mental-State Exam, so that ER, primary, neurology, psychology, and psychiatry specialists could help diagnose this sooner other families would not have to go through the horrible odyssey our family has.
