The Die Hard actor’s family has been researching frontotemporal dementia since he was diagnosed.
Emma Heming Willis learns all about frontotemporal dementia after her husband Bruce Willis was diagnosed with the disease.
The 44-year-old actress shared a photo on her Instagram with dementia and education specialist Tipa Snow. Noting the Frontotemporal Degeneration Association, Emma praised the help she received as she learned to manage Bruce’s condition.
“I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with @teepasnows_pac who has helped complete my dementia toolbox. She is a loving, compassionate and experienced leader in the field who navigates with pure empathy. She is a gift.

In the comments under the post, Snow wrote that the wife of the famous actor also did a great job.
“@emmahemingwillis has done an absolutely wonderful job of giving Bruce the right support as his abilities have changed and created a place, space and life that continues to provide him with what he needs to live well. Frontotemporal dementia is never easy, but with with the right programming and support, you can really live on. Congratulations to Emma and their entire family for their very, very hard work and dedication. This is really wonderful!
Recall, on February 16, the actor’s family reported that Bruce had frontotemporal dementia. This happened 11 months after he was diagnosed with aphasia, a language disorder that affects his cognitive abilities.
The big family of 67-year-old Bruce Willis is wife Emma Heming Willis, their common children are 10-year-old Mabel and 8-year-old Evelyn, ex-wife Demi Moore and their children – 34-year-old Rumer Willis, 31-year-old Scout Willis and 29-year-old Tallulah Willis is close by and supportive of the actor to help him “live as fully as possible.”
Earlier, Focus wrote that Willis’ wife frankly told how she was going through her husband’s illness. Willis himself spends all the time with his family, only occasionally going out for walks with friends.
