Abstract [sv]

Många personer lever med demenssjukdom, och antalet beräknas stiga i takt med att befolkningen blir äldre. Syftet med studien var att utifrån personer med demenssjukdom och deras berättelser beskriva upplevelser av att bo i ordinärt boende och hantera vardagen. Studien har utförts genom ostrukturerade intervjuer med nio personer med demenssjukdom som är över 65 år och som bor i ordinärt boende. Data bearbetades genom kvalitativ manifest innehållsanalys. Resultatet redovisas i sex olika kategorier som handlar om begränsningar i vardagen, förändrad självbild, känslan av missnöje, känslan av förnöjsamhet, sociala relationer och strategier.De äldre personerna upplevde begränsningar och varberoende av andra på grund av sin demenssjukdom. Bitterhet över att ha drabbats av sjukdom var den största källan till känslan av missnöje. Förnöjsamheten upplevdes av att känna trygghet och att kunna utföra för dem meningsfulla sysslor. Sociala relationer var viktiga, men påverkades ibland av känslan att inte duga. Vardagen i ordinärt boende innebar olika sysselsättningar och hanterades med hjälp av olika strategier och en viss acceptans. Studiens slutsats visar att personer med demenssjukdom upplever sin livssituation och vardag tillfredsställande och hanterbar i ordinärt boende med behovsanpassat stöd och hjälp.

Abstract [en]

Several people are living with dementia disease and the numbers are expected to rise as the population ages. The aim of the study was that by people with dementia disease and their narratives describe the experiences of living in ordinary housing and deal with daily life. The study has been carried out through unstructured interviews with nine people with dementia disease who are over 65 years old and living in ordinary housing. Data were processed by qualitative manifest content analysis. The results are presented in six categories dealing with limitations in daily life, altered self, feeling of dissatisfaction, the feeling of contentedness, social relationships and strategies.The older persons experienced limitations and were dependence on others because of their dementiadisease. Bitterness to have suffered illness was the main source of the feeling of dissatisfaction. Contentedness was perceived by feeling safe and be able to perform for them meaningful tasks. Social relations were important, but sometimes influenced by the feeling of not being good enough. Everyday living in ordinary housing meant different pursuits and handled by using different strategies and a certain acceptance. The conclusion of the study shows that people with dementia disease perceive their life situation and everyday living satisfying and manageable in ordinary housing with appropriate support and assistance.
