Dr. Rebecca Genoe and student Haley Rutherford have observed up close the effects dementia can have on people. For Genoe, it was the time she spent working in a long-term care home. For Rutherford, it’s a little more personal. Her grandmother is in the early stages of dementia. Now the two are working with a research team exploring the meaning of deep and sustained friendships for people with dementia.
