Abstract [en]

Abstract: As humans, we have a sense of self, and at best, we are proud of ourabilities and feel respected by other persons. Persons with dementia have beenregarded losing their self. Quantitative research has shown that this is true, whilequalitative research has shown that parts of self are severely affected while otherparts remain even among persons with advanced dementia. These persons sometimeskeep feeling "still the same" as before getting dementia. Their memory deficitshelp as does support from other persons. The theory of three aspects of self bythe psychologists Rom Harré and Steven Sabat are presented, that is, the feelingthat we are, who we are, and who we are together with other persons. Based onempirical research, suggestions will be given about how by promoting experiencesof at-homeness, dignity, and being oneself related to others we can helppersons with advanced dementia experience themselves as valuable persons
