: The study is performed in line with the Declaration of Helsinki. Projects that require approval from the Norwegian Regional Committees for Medical and Health Research Ethics (REC) are defined as medical research including biological materials and health data. As the current project collected data about the spouses lived experiences of the corona pandemic, the study was not considered dependent of the approval from REC. The processing of personal data in the project was approved by the Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD), project number: 928442. Participants gave their written informed consent to take part. Names or other identifying characteristics, except for sex, age and living conditions, were not used during the interviews. Participants were encouraged not to give information in the interviews that could identify their family member with dementia. If such information was mentioned in the interviews, it was anonymized during the transcription process. Hence, the participants’ anonymity was safeguarded in both the analysis and publication processes.
