Welcome to the Familial Alzheimer’s Disease support group 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, and their families, friends and healthcare professionals.
The support group is financed by the Myrtle Ellis Fund, you can find out more here.
