Abstract [en]

When someone falls ill with dementia it affects the whole family. Therefore, the aim of thisqualitative single case study was to increase understanding of one female spouse´s experiencesof living with a husband/partner diagnosed with early-onset dementia before the ageof 40 years. Two open-ended interviews with the female spouse were performed sixmonths apart and analysed for narrative structure and themes. The single case is describedin the form of a story and organised along a time line comprising four phases; «Somethingis wrong», «Becoming aware of what is wrong», «Life is restricted» and «Towards reconciliation».Healthcare professionals should meet spouses with respect, listen to them and providepractical support, thus giving them the opportunity to rest, obtain respite and time ontheir own to enable reconciliation and wellbeing.
