Family caregivers’ experiences of support given by care professionals at nursing homes for persons with dementia – a qualitative study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Anhöriga utgör en viktig och betydande del av vården som ges till personer med demenssjukdom. När man vårdar en närstående kan det leda till att man åsidosätter den egna hälsan. Att stödja personer som ger omsorg eller vård till en närstående är viktigt för både den anhöriga och samhället. Anhörigstöd är en sjuksköterskeuppgift.Syfte: Att belysa anhörigas upplevelse av stöd från vårdpersonal på särskilt boende för personer med demenssjukdom.Metod: Studien genomfördes som en deskriptiv kvalitativ intervjustudie. Data från sju semistrukturerade intervjuer analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys.Resultat: Anhöriga upplever stöd från vårdpersonal när de blir bemötta på ett bra sätt, när de känner trygghet, när de vet att den närstående får bra vård och när de får information. Stöd från vårdpersonal upplevs inte av alla anhöriga och ses inte som en självklar arbetsuppgift för personalen.Slutsats: Sjuksköterskor kan ge stöd till anhöriga genom att bygga stöttande relationer, främja transparens och involvera anhöriga i planerandet och genomförandet av vården. Anhörigstöd på särskilda boenden behöver utvecklas.

Abstract [en]

Background: Close family and friends play a significant role in the care provided to people with dementia. When a person cares for a close relative or friend, it can be at the expense of their own health. Support for those who provide care and assistance to a close relative or friend is important for both the carer concerned and for society as a whole. Support for patients’ close family and friends is part of the nursing remit.Purpose: To examine the support provided by the care staff at residential homes for people with dementia as experienced by the family and friends of residents.Method: This research was carried out as a qualitative descriptive study based on interview surveys. Data from seven semi-structured interviews was analysed using a qualitative content analysis technique.Results: Close relatives and friends feel supported by care staff when they are treated appropriately and kindly, when they have a sense of trust and confidence in the environment, when they know that their family member or friend is being well cared for and when they are provided with information. Not all caring relatives and friends perceive that they get support from care staff, nor do they see it as a self-evident part of the job of the care staff.Conclusion: Nursing staff are able to provide support to patients’ close family and friends by forming supportive relationships, promoting transparency and involving patients’ close family and friends in planning and executing the provision of care. Support for close family and friends in the context of residential care needs improvement.
