Physical environment importance for the wellbeing of people with dementia : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Att beskriva olika aspekter i den fysiska miljön som kan påverka

välbefinnandet för personer med demens. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en

litteraturöversikt. Artiklar publicerade mellan år 2000-2016 söktes i databaserna

Cinahl, PubMed och PsycINFO samt Web of Science. Resultat: Studiens resultat

visade att fysiska faktorer som ljud, ljus, färg, mönster, planlösning, möblering och

sensorisk stimuli samt möjlighet till aktivitet hade positiv påverkan på

beteendemässiga och psykiska symtom hos personer med demens, vilket ledde till

välbefinnande. Konklusion: Egenskaper i den fysiska miljön minskade

beteendemässiga och psykiska symtom vid demens och förbättrade funktionsnivån

samt reducerade negativa emotionella symtom. Observation av emotionella

symtom hos personer med nedsatt kommunikationsförmåga är ett viktigt redskap

för att identifiera individens icke verbala uttrycksform.
