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.
