By Being Patient | February 20th, 2020
Too often we misinterpret behaviors and emotions of people with dementia as symptoms of the disease, overlooking their genuine experiences. Being Patient spoke with Dr. Steven Sabat about his research into managing behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia, and reframing how we view those with the disease.
If you find our articles and interviews helpful, please consider becoming a supporting member of our community. Frustrated by the lack of an editorially independent source of information on brain health and Alzheimer’s disease, we decided to create Being Patient. We are a team of dedicated journalists covering the latest research on Alzheimer’s, bringing you access to the experts and elevating the patient perspective on what it’s like to live with dementia.
Please help support our mission.

What do you do when person wit more advanced dementia gets angry & actually sticks out to hi another person (person was mild mannered in past). Person not really able to communicate feelings.
