Exploring the experiences of those living with Lewy Body Dementia
The LBD Life Lab at UF explores the experiences of people living with Lewy body dementia from diagnosis to end of life. Our interdisciplinary team uses both qualitative (experience-based) and quantitative (data-based) approaches to understand the lived experiences of individuals with Lewy body dementia and their caregivers. The goal of our research group is to improve the lives of those affected by Lewy body dementia through purposeful conversation and innovation.
