Abstract [sv]

The purpose with this study was to examine how persons giving care to their spouses with dementia experience their life situation. As information source we used a qualitative study which included halfstructured interview questions. The study took place in three municipalities in the south of Sweden. Three females and two males took part in the study and everyone had experiences of giving care to their spouces with dementia. We used a coping theory and an exchange theory. The study´s main discovery was that caregiving relatives experience the support from voluntary organizations more important and valuable than support from the municipality. In addition, the study showed that male caregivers had a more positive view of their situation than females.
