Early stage dementia and memory care specialist & RDI therapist
Kaufmann is a behavioral neurologist who studies the underlying mechanisms of neurocognitive disorders and is a renowned expert in developing cognitive Reserve and not only the Aging brain but with mild brain injury .
Until recently, most cases of dementia were classified as Alzheimer’s disease with little awareness of the importance of non-Alzheimer dementias. Kaufmann’s depiction of changes in behavior, language and emotion in the setting of aging have improved the separation of various neurodegenerative diseases from one another, in particular Alzheimer’s disease from frontotemporal dementia.
To support people after diagnosis, Kaufmann has studied groundbreaking changes in the provision of care coordination for patients with dementia and their caregivers.
Her ongoing work includes overseeing a healthy aging program and an artist in residence program, both of which emphasize positive aspects of aging.
Kaufmann has been featured on CBC radio, global News, On The Media(NYC) and in Today’s parent magazine. She is currently working on a publishing project as well as a television series.
