In my dissertation I use philosophical and phenomenological approaches to investigate to what extent the medical concept of dementia can be extended or supplemented by other descriptions. The suffering of a human being as his subjective experience depends not only on an objective finding, but also on his subjective mood. My working hypothesis is that the dementia changes cannot be explained exclusively by the physio-logical changes, but that the human being as an individual is affected in his access to himself and the world, i.e. in his existence. I try to contribute to an understanding of life with dementia through such a description of dementia. 

Keywords: Phenomenology, Vulnerability, Living with Dementia
