Steven R. Sabat Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Georgetown University is a three-time recipient of the Edward B. Bunn Award for excellence in teaching, and a recipient of the College Dean's Award and College Academic Council Award for excellence in teaching at Georgetown. His research has focused on the remaining cognitive and social strengths, and the subjective experience of people with Alzheimer's disease. He is the author of The Experience of Alzheimer's Disease: Life Through a Tangled Veil (Blackwell Publishers, 2001) and co-editor of Dementia: Mind, Meaning, and the Person (Oxford University Press, 2006).
Professor Sabat's international renown as an expert in the field stems from his advocacy of a humane approach to people with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. In this new book his views are presented with typical clarity. What he says can only be helpful both to people living with dementia and to their friends, families and professional carers. It's vintage Sabat: always look to the social environment; what's going on in the brain is never the end of the story! And he tells the story with remarkable sympathy and expertise. --Julian C Hughes, RICE Professor of Old Age Psychiatry, University of Bristol Steve Sabat's widely recognized and resonant voice has infused a transformative and compelling humanity into our personal and cultural narratives about people with dementia across the globe. His thought-provoking, compassionate, and instructive content throughout this new book is grounded in his core and profoundly important message--to never give up on the person by giving in to the diagnosis. - Lisa Snyder, MSW, LCSW , Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, University of California, San Diego It has helped me become more hopeful for a better future for all people with dementia, and I believe this book will help others find ways to live with dementia, as it informs those without dementia how to support us to do that. There is a gross and systemic underestimation of the capacity of people with dementia, even in the later stages of the disease. This book focuses on our capacity, and what we can still do to find meaning and purpose in our lives. - Kate Swaffer, Chair, CEO, & Co-founder, Dementia Alliance International Providing an accessible, question-and-answer format primer on what touches so many lives, and yet so few of us understand, Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia: What Everyone Needs to Know contributes what is urgently missing from public knowledge: unsparing investigation of their causes and manifestations, and focus on the strengths possess by people diagnosed...Sabat strives to inform as well as to remind readers of the respect and empathy owed to those diagnosed and living with dementia. - Care and Nursing Magazine There is much to satisfy students and professionals ... Family carers and those living with dementia will find much to identify in this book to help them make sense of what is happening to them and how to cope better ... the wisdom [this book] contains will be universally appealing to those who are serious about understanding how dementia affects the human condition and what we can all do to improve the quality of life of us all. - Journal of Dementia Care, Professor Dawn Brooker
