Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Alzheimers är den fjärde vanligaste dödsorsaken i Sverige och kallas även för de anhörigas sjukdom. Sjukdomen har stor påverkan på livet och vardagen både för den drabbade och för de anhöriga. Syfte: Syftet var att belysa en partners upplevelse av att leva i en parrelation med en person som har Alzheimers sjukdom. Metod: Kvalitativ litteraturstudie baserad på självbiografier analyserades med manifest innehållsanalys enligt Graneheim och Lundmans analysmetod. Resultat: Sjukdomen leder till att relationen och vardagen förändras, den friska partnern tar på sig en ny roll och nya ansvar i förhållandet. Den friska partnern utsätts för stora belastningar vilket leder till att hälsan påverkas. Partnern behöver hitta nya strategier för att klara av vardagen. Slutsats: Att leva med en person med Alzheimers sjukdom innebär förändringar i livet som kan försämra välbefinnandet hos partnern och vården har en viktig uppgift att underlätta för paret.
