Mayo Clinic doctors trained in nervous system conditions (neurologists), mental health specialists (psychiatrists) and other doctors care for people who have frontotemporal dementia.

Your doctor will work with you to create an individualized treatment program to meet your needs. Frontotemporal dementia can't be cured, but your doctors can help you manage your condition. Your doctor may help manage your behavior problems and psychiatric symptoms through behavioral therapy or medications. You may be eligible to participate in clinical trials and studies in the Mayo Clinic Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC).

Your treatment team will educate you and your family about frontotemporal dementia. Your doctor will coordinate your follow-up care with your primary doctor.
