My thesis work is entitled: Participation in everyday life and mental health among older people with dementia and effects of an intensive rehabilitation program.

The aim is: To develop knowledge related to participation in everyday life and mental health among older people with dementia in a representative sample as well as after an intensive rehabilitation program. Furthermore, the aim is to describe experiences of everyday life after a rehabilitation program among people with dementia and their informal primary caregivers. 

My research is based on two research projects: Umeå 85 + / GERDA and MIDRED.

Umeå 85 + / GERDA is a longitudinal population-based cohort study that aims to increase knowledge of health, quality of life, and living conditions of very old people from Västerbotten, Sweden and Österbotten, Finland.

MIDRED is a randomised controlled study, wich contained a person-centered multidimensional interdisciplinary rehabilitation program for the person with dementia, including education and support to the primary caregiver.
