      Abstract

      Over the last decade the rise of the person with dementia as a legitimate focus
      of research, policy and practice attention has been one of the major advances in
      the dementia care field. Whilst such progress is to be welcomed there remains
      significant gaps in understanding that may impede the forging of genuine
      partnerships with people with dementia and their families. Using grounded
      theory (Glaser, 1978) and narrative interpretation as the main methodological
      approach, this chapter will explore the meaning of assessment for a diagnosis
      of Alzheimer’s disease as it was lived by those in the sample (N=15) who
      attended a memory clinic in one health district in England.
