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.

Dr. Steven Sabat has been at Georgetown University since earning his doctorate at the City University of New York, where he specialized in neuropsychology. The main focus of his research has been the cognitive and social abilities of people with Alzheimer’s disease in the moderate to severe stages of the disease, the experience of having the disease, and the ways in which communication between those diagnosed and their caregivers can be improved.
