Familial Alzheimer's Disease (FAD) support

Welcome to the familial Alzheimer’s disease support website.

The fAD support group is for families affected by autosomal dominantly inherited familial Alzheimer’s disease due to mutations in the presenilin 1 (PSEN1), presenilin 2 (PSEN2) or amyloid precursor protein (APP) genes or APP duplications. The group was formed in the UK in 2010 to provide these families with information, advocacy and opportunities to meet each other.

This site aims to provide information and support to people with fAD, their families, friends and healthcare professionals.

For more information and support contact Ivanna: ivanna.pavisic.15@ucl.ac.uk or 07388 220 323.
