Relatives ́ unselfish efforts to support and care for a family member during end of life at home : A litterature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ungefär en tredjedel av Sveriges befolkning kommer att utveckla cancer, varav ungefär 50 procent beräknas tillfriskna. Att drabbas av en cancerdiagnos med dödlig utgång vänder ofta upp och ner på tillvaron och ställer stora krav på omgivningen. Stöd och trygghet från anhöriga och vårdpersonal är därför centralt för den drabbade. Syfte: Beskriva anhörigas upplevelse av sen palliativ vård i hemmet vid cancerdiagnos. Metod: En litteraturöversikt har gjorts inom området för att få en fördjupad kunskap kring det valda ämnet. Resultat: Trots psykiska och fysiska påfrestningar valde många familjemedlemmar att bli anhörigvårdare. De ville ge tillbaka den kärlek och omtanke som de en gång fått från den döende. En önskan att få dö hemma fanns ofta vilket medförde stora krav på omgivningen. Vardagliga rutiner och andra sociala och ekonomiska aspekter föll samman. Stöd, information och kunskap blev därför betydelsefullt för att som familj kunna klara av att vara en del av vårdandet. Slutsats: Vård i livets slutskede i hemmet ställer stora krav på anhöriga. En välfungerande organisation underlättar för närstående och ökar chansen för välbefinnande hos familjen.

Abstract [en]

Background: Approximately one-third of Sweden's population will develop cancer and about 50 percent of these will recover from it. To suffer from a cancer diagnosis with a fatal outcome often turns life upside-down and makes big demands on the family and on the environment. Support and safety from relatives and nursing staff is therefore important to the dying patient. Aim: To describe relatives experience of late palliative care at home in cancer diagnosis. Method: A literature review has been done to get at deeper knowledge about the chosen subject. Results: Despite the mental and physical stresses many family members chose to become caregivers. They wanted to give back the love and concern that they once received from their loved one. A wish to die at home was often resulted in demands on the environment. Everyday routines and other social and economic aspects fell apart. Support, information and knowledge were therefore important for the family to be able to be part of the care process. Conclusion: End of life care in the home makes great demands on families. A well-functioning organization facilitates for the relatives and increases the chance for the well-being of the family.
