View of life in persons with dementia

Objective : To study the view of life in dementia. The view of life of an individual is defined as a conception of reality, a central system of values and a basic emotional attitude. Method : Interviews with persons ( N = 21) with mild to moderate dementia of the Alzheimer’s type. The interview data were interpreted with a phenomenological hermeneutical method. Results : Despite their cognitive deterioration it was possible to understand the view of life of the participants in the frame of their life story. Their view of life seemed to guide them towards selecting mainly emotionally powerful and value-oriented memories. No exceptional characteristics that could be traced to their dementia disease were found in the participants’ views of life. Conclusions : The view of life of the participants with mild to moderate dementia was vital for their life story and was not erased by dementia. Implications : In order to respect people with dementia as persons, caregivers should strive for gaining some knowledge of their view of life. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Dementia SAGE
