Nurse Jill Walton…

Jill Walton is a nurse coordinator of the support groups affiliated to Rare Dementia Support.

Rare Dementia Support runs specialist support group services for individuals living with, or affected by, one of five rare dementia diagnoses: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), posterior cortical atrophy (PCA), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), familial Alzheimer’s disease (FAD), and familial frontotemporal dementia (fFTD).

Our vision is for all individuals with or at risk of one of these forms of dementia to have access to information, support and contact with others affected by similar conditions. Rare Dementia Support is a fund held by The National Brain Appeal (registered charity number: 290173).

With over twenty years nursing experience, Jill also has degrees in psychology and gerontology.
