As a social gerontologist, I am interested in the interactions between older adults with memory impairments, their family caregivers, and their health care providers. More specifically my interests include: Alzheimer’s disease and other types of late life dementias; the experiences of family and other unpaid dementia caregivers; interpersonal and health communication related to older adults and/or their caregivers; and the dynamics of multidisciplinary team-based geriatric health care teams.
