Abstract [sv]

Den åldrande befolkningen ökar i flera länder i världen, vilket visar sig ge en ökning av personer med en demenssjukdom. Det sker ett utvecklingsarbete för att förbättra vården i hemmet, så att den demenssjuke kan bo kvar i sitt hem. För anhörigvårdaren som lever med en demenssjuk förändras livet och den nya förändringen kan bli väldigt krävande, vilket leder till en psykisk och fysisk belastning. Idag erbjuds olika e-hälsobaserade lösningar i vården. Lösningarna presenteras som ett komplement till sjukvården, då vården kan bedrivas i hemmet. Syftet med studien var att beskriva anhörigvårdarens erfarenheter av e-hälsa i samband med vården till en demenssjuk i hemmet. Studien genomfördes som integrativ litteraturstudie vilket ger en djupare förståelse för ett visst fenomen inom hälso- och sjukvården. Litteraturstudiens resultat baseras på 16 vetenskapliga artiklar. I analysen framkom fem teman: förbättrad livskvalitet, emotionellt stöd, ökad kunskap, enklare vardag och tekniska utmaningar. E-hälsa visar sig ha en positiv inverkan på livskvaliten, anhörigvårdaren kände sig tryggare och hittade en bättre balans för att fungera i vardagslivet. Anhörigvårdaren beskrev också att e-hälsa var ett effektivt sätt att få ny kunskap och att det var bekvämt eftersom de sparade resurser och energi jämfört med ett besök på en klinik. Trots att tekniska utmaningar uppstod var anhörigvårdarna nöjda med e-hälsobaserade lösningar.

Abstract [en]

The aging population is increasing in several countries in the world, which leads to an increase in people with a dementia disease. There is a development work to improve homecare so that the dementia can live at home. For carers who live with a dementia, life changes and the new change can become very demanding, leading to a mental and physical strain. Today, various e-health-based solutions are offered in care. The solutions are presented as a complement to traditional hospital care, when care can be conducted at home. The purpose of the study was to describe the carers experiences of e-health in connection with homecare for a dementia. The study was conducted as an integrative literature study, which gives a deeper understanding of a particular phenomenon in health care. The literature study results are based on 16 scientific articles. The analysis revealed five themes: Improved quality of life, emotional support, increased knowledge, simpler everyday life and technical challenges. EHealth proves to have a positive impact on quality of life, the carers felt safer and found a better balance for working in everyday life. Carers also described that ehealth was an effective way of gaining new knowledge and that it was convenient because they saved resources and energy compared to a visit to a clinic. Although technical challenges arose, the close carers were pleased with e-health-based solutions.
