Our study shows how social workers in sessions with people suffering from dementia keep focus on the healthy abilities of these people. We have come to the conclusion that the social workers also intend to increase the persons KASAM through comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness in their support to the individual suffering from dementia. We have also come to the conclusion that the social workers in every way tries to reach the person with dementia to increase their well- being. If this is not possible the social workers do not proceed having sessions with the person suffering from dementia. (Less)
