Remain living at home with dementia : Consequences for family caregivers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Kvarboendeprincipen innebär att den äldre sjuka individen ska ha möjlighet att kunna bo kvar i sitt ordinära boende med hjälp av hemtjänst eller anhöriga. Ofta fyller anhöriga funktionen som vårdare och är en förutsättning för kvarboende i hemmet för personer med demens.Rapporter visar på svårigheter och ökad belastning för anhöriga. Syftet var att undersöka vilka konsekvenser kvarboende i hemmet kan ha för anhöriga till personen med demens. Metod var en integrerad litteraturstudie. Efter urval och kvalitetsgranskning återstod tolv artiklar som användes i resultatet. Elva artiklar var kvantitativa och en artikel var mixad metod. I resultatet framkom fyra kategorier: Anhörigvårdarna kände börda, Vårdandet övergick i psykisk ohälsa, BPSD inverkade på anhörigas livskvalité, Behov av hjälp utifrån. Konklusion: Varaktigheten i vårdandet samt om personen med demens hade BPSD var av betydelse för om anhörigvårdarna utvecklade känslan av börda, psykisk ohälsa samt om de var i behov av hjälp utifrån. Stöd och utbildning till anhörigvårdarna i tidigt skede kan bidra till att anhörigvårdarna orkar vårda längre i det ordinära boendet.

 

Abstract [en]

In Sweden remaining living at home principle means that the older sick individual should have the opportunity to stay in their ordinary home with the    help of home care services or relatives. The family members often act as a caregiver and is a prerequisite for remaining living at home for people with dementia. Reports show the difficulties and increased burden for the relatives.The aim of the study was to investigate the consequences remaining living at home can have for relatives of the person with dementia. Method: An integrated literature study was used as a method. After selection and quality assessment remained twelve articles used in the result. Eleven articles were quantitative and one article were a mixed approach.The results revealed four categories: Family caregivers felt burden, Caring were turned into mental illness, BPSD impact on family members' quality of life, Taking  care from outside health providers.Conclusion: The duration of the treatment process as well as the person with dementia had BPSD was relevant to whether carers developed sense of burden, mental illness and were in need of outside help. Education and support for carers in the early stage of the illness, may help family caregivers to give informal caregiving longer in regularhousing.
