To date, the first draft of the couple-orientated self-management course is delivered in Swedish only, and in paper format.
The developing of the course is on-going (phase 1). Since June, two couples living with dementia are actively involved in the process together with Therese Bielsten (doctoral student).
Three additional couples living with dementia will take part in the developing phase, beginning in August, 2015.
Ruth Elvish (lead of Work Programme 8) has recently produced two leaflets which include information on the service WP8 provides (i.e. counselling and support) and also the referral details.
