Work Programme 6 Description

The key focus of WP6 is to develop a ‘Living life and doing things together’ couple-management guide for couples where one partner has a diagnosis of dementia. The guide is adapted into an application, which will be delivered via a tablet. We are aiming to determine how much support couples need to engage with this application and whether they make use of it in their day-to-day lives. If there is support for the app, a future study will assess whether it is superior to ‘usual care’.

WP6 has two broad phases 1) identify and develop content for the couple-management guide in collaboration with couples living with dementia; 2) test the feasibility and acceptability of the couple-management guide, which will be delivered via the application “DemPower” in a feasibility trial in Sweden and in the UK.
