The self-help guide can be described as "couple-management", aimed at supporting couples in which one partner has a diagnosis of dementia. Five couples with dementia and several other experts in the dementia field are involved in the development of support content. “DemPower” intends to support couples to identify, make use of, and sustain positive resources in their relationship and everyday life.
DemPower - Living life and doing things together is part of an ongoing five-year research program called Neighbourhoods and Dementia. The research is also part of the research theme Neighbourhood nursing care in dementia.
