Relatives´ experiences when a person with dementia moves to a nursing home (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Allt fler människor insjuknar i någon form av demenssjukdom. Det medför att även anhöriga till personer med demenssjukdom stiger i antal. Anhöriga ser det ofta som naturligt att vårda en familjemedlem, men när bördan blir för tung sker ofta en flytt till ett särskilt boende. Syfte: Att beskriva anhörigas upplevelser när en närstående som har en demenssjukdoms flyttar till särskilt boende. Metod: Litteraturöversikt där kvalitativa artiklar inkluderades. Sökningarna gjordes i databaserna Cinahl, PsycINFO och Pubmed. Analysen gjordes utifrån en tre-stegs-modell. Resultatet har sammanställts och redovisats genom kategorier. Resultat: Två huvudkategorier identifierades; "Tiden före flytt" med underkategorier; "En ohållbar situation", "Att ta steget till beslutet" samt "Tiden efter flytt" med underkategorier; "Att känna skuld och skam", "Att inte kunna släppa taget", "Den förändrade relationen", "Det rätta beslutet". Anhöriga upplever processen som svår och som en process som underlättas om stöd ges från familj eller vårdpersonal. Slutsats: Resultatet kan ses som att anhöriga genomgår en transition över tid. Om anhöriga får stöd av vårdpersonal under processens gång så kan de lättare acceptera den nya tillvaron.

Abstract [en]

Background: More and more people fall ill with some type of dementia. This leads to that the relatives of people with dementia will increase in number. Relatives often see it as natural to care for a family member, but when the burden becomes too heavy it often ends in a move to nursing home. Aim: To describe relatives´ experiences when a person with dementia moves to a nursing home. Method: Literature review where qualitative articles were included. Searches were made in the databases CINAHL, PsycINFO and PubMed. The analysis was based on a three-step model. The result was then compiled and presented in different categories. Results: Relatives are experiencing a change and two main categories were identified; "The time before the move" with subcategories; "An untenable situation" and "Taking the step to the decision" and "The time after the move" with the subcategories; "To feel guilt and shame," "Not being able to let go," "The changed relationship" and "The right decision". Family members experience the process as difficult and as a process that is facilitated if support is given by family members or health professionals. Conclusion: The result can be seen as that relatives undergo a transition over time. If relatives are supported by health professionals during the process it can help them to accept the new life situation.
