Abstract [en]

Background: Stroke is the disease that leads to most days of care in hospitals and which leads to the most disabilities in adults. With these disabilities, the patient often end up in a dependence to both relatives and healthcare professionals to cope with their daily lives. Previous research on family experience shows that they feel regret, stress and do not find time for relaxation. Describing how people experience their quality of life and their everyday life after stroke is important in order to give the nurse a better insight and understanding of the care of these patients.

 

Aim: To describe how people perceive their quality of life and their daily lives after a stroke and describe the study groups in the selected articles.

 

Method: A descriptive literature study. 13 scientific articles were used, with both quantitative and qualitative approaches.

 

Results: When the authors compiled the thirteen articles of this literature study, a continuous theme was seen on how stroke affected the quality of life of the participants and their everyday life. Stroke led to a changed life, both physically and mentally. Many suffered from speech disorders and disabilities, which meant isolating themselves from society. Quality of life was considered to be done by itself, having goals in life and having good social relations. To not have to rely on others and to be independent was a goal that the stroke sufferers constantly sought after.

 

Conclusion: Both physical and psychological problems arise that affected everyday life after a stroke. Finding new meaningful activities, establish goals, managing oneself and having good social relationships were important for a good quality of life after a stroke.
