Familial Alzheimer's disease 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.

The next FAD Support Group Meeting, is on Saturday 12th May 2018 (10:30 – 15:00) The agenda can be viewed by clicking here. At this meeting we will also be acknowledging the huge contribution that support group members have made to raising public awareness of young onset and familial Alzheimer’s disease, with an open discussion session on ‘sharing stories’.
