Abstract [en]

The results showed that in the presence of animals both verbal and non verbal communication, problem behaviours and different physical parameters were improved for persons with Alzheimer’s disease. The authors think that animals can provide for some needs which easily remain unmet in the daily life; e.g. to care for and take care of another living being. Possibilities are seen for an introduction of animals into nursing as they can have a positive influence on persons with Alzheimer’s disease. The number of persons with Alzheimer’s disease may increase in the future. Today, there is no known medical cure for the disease. The environment has proved to be of importance in their care. Animals can contribute to a good environment. The purpose was to describe reactions of persons with Alzheimer’s disease in the presence of animals in nursing. A general literature study was made from ten articles found at different databases on the web. Additions were made through manual searching in the articles´ list of references. The results of the articles were processed through a division into codes, subcategories and main categories.
