This project supported in part by the East Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability, a division of ETHRA. Grantees undertaking projects under government sponsorship are encouraged to express freely their findings and conclusions. Points of view or opinions do not, therefore, necessarily represent official Administration on Aging policy.

In 2015, Tennessee state code 68-11-1404 was amended to recognize FTD as a separate disease requiring its own treatment methods. Facilities need to provide staff training specifically addressing FTD in order to state that they provide FTD care. This training meets that requirement.
