Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Demenssjukdom är en av de vanligaste sjukdomarna i världen och förväntas öka kraftigt. Demenssjukdom påverkar det dagliga livet för både den som är sjuk och för anhöriga. Problem: Många anhöriga vårdar sin närstående i hemmet i många år vilket påverkar dem i stor utsträckning. Oftast leder det till en kritisk punkt och beslut om flytt till särskilt boende blir aktuellt. Detta examensarbete kan vara till hjälp för att vårdpersonal ska möta och ge stöd på ett bra sätt. Syfte: Att beskriva anhörigas upplevelser i samband med flytt av deras närstående med demenssjukdom till särskilt boende. Metod: En kvalitativ systematisk litteraturstudie med beskrivande syntes. Resultat: Anhöriga upplevde sig ensam i sin situation och skuld gentemot sin närstående. De behövde anpassa sig till en ny livssituation. De önskade vara delaktiga i vården och att få känna trygghet i samverkan med vårdpersonal. Stöd av familj, vänner och andra personer var av stor vikt. De hade behov av samhörighet. Slutsats: Utifrån resultatet kan vårdpersonal möta och ge stöd på ett bra sätt till anhöriga när de är medvetna om anhörigas upplevelser när deras närstående flyttar.
