Abstract [en]

Background: Stroke is one of the illnesses that take up most beds at hospitals in Sweden. A stroke can be a life-changing experience that affects patients and their relatives. Relatives find it difficult to see the patient in a state where they are not as independent as before. Nurses feel that they are a central part in patients rehabilitation, as they have information about patients and care for them from a holistic perspective. Aim: To describe patients’ experiences of post-stroke recovery. Method: A qualitative manifest content analysis based on six autobiographies. Results: Patients describe how they achieved progress during recovery and it is described as long and challenging. The presence of other people is important to have your needs seen and to be understood and thus obtain the help needed. They feel that they lost themselves and yearn for a better future. They describe the importance of other people to see their needs and the value of being understood to get the help needed. Conclusion: Patients describe a need to get more access to help during recovery. Getting guidance during recovery appears to have a positive impact on patients as they are seen as individuals and their needs are met. By allowing nurses to take part of the patient’s experiences they can more easily satisfy the needs expressed in patients.
