The study finds that the care managers sometimes tend to be taking more account of the working alliance with the partner to the user, before the diseased persons presumed (but not immediate) needs. Another finding was that care managers tended to use the sick person’s partner as an ”informal representative” instead of notifying the needs of legal representation (förvaltare). The analysis is based on a review of the two given scenarios, how care managers view the working relationship with the user’s partner and how the care managers receive application for social services from a user with dementia without decision-making capacity.
