"The Relatives' Disease" : Relatives experiences of caring for persons with Alzheimer's disease. (English)
Abstract [sv]

 

Bakgrund: I Sverige finns det cirka 160 000 personer som är drabbade av någon form av demenssjukdom och av dessa lider ca 60 % av Alzheimers sjukdom. Cirka en halv miljon svenskar beräknas vara anhöriga till någon som drabbats av Alzheimers sjukdom. Alzheimers kallas ibland för de anhörigas sjukdom, eftersom livssituationen förändras både för den drabbade och för de anhöriga. Syfte: Att beskriva anhörigas upplevelser av att vårda personer med Alzheimers sjukdom. Metod: Studien utfördes som en allmän litteraturstudie. Resultat: I resultatet framkom att de anhöriga upplevde många känslor under sjukdomsförloppet, som till exempel oro inför framtiden och en stor sorg över sjukdomsbeskedet. Många unga anhörigas situationer upplevdes som särskilt svåra då de fortfarande var beroende av sina föräldrar. Slutsats: Som sjuksköterska är det av stor vikt att se till både den sjukes och de anhörigas situation för att i god tid kunna ge familjen det stöd och den information som de kan behöva för att orka fortsätta leva som en familj tills sjukdomens slutstadie.

Approximately half a million Swedes are expected to be relatives of someone affected by Alzheimer's disease.
