    Abstract [en]

    Background: As the number of people with dementia are expected to increase globally, the need for knowledge relevant to the subject is important to enable good and evident care. Therefore, an increased amount of research is needed from a patient perspective of what these individuals consider to be meaningful in their everyday life.

    Aim: To describe experiences of a meaningful everyday life for individuals suffering from mild to moderate dementia

    Method: Systematic literature review with qualitative approach based on Evans analytical method was applied.

    Results: Three main themes emerged with two subthemes each. Individuals suffering from dementia valued relationships with family and relatives, as well as a connection with people in general. Activities were seen as an important factor for experiencing meaningfulness, both to strengthen their own identity and to stay active. Finally, the importance of freedom was identified by a feeling of self-determination and independence.

    Conclusion: Several factors have shown to play an important role in how individuals suffering from dementia value as meaningful in their everyday lives. These key factors are important to consider when caring for this group of patients to allow for optimal health.
