Our understanding people with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) has been dominated by a biomedical point of view and this context, focuses primarily on what people with AD cannot do. If we shift our way of looking at people diagnosed from a biomedical lens to a lens that focuses on what they are still able to do, we see a very different picture: we see ability where before, we saw disability. Steven R. Sabat, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Georgetown University explores this idea and provides examples drawn from his research.
