Living with a stroke patient : Experiences by family members (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Vid stroke utlöses olika reaktioner och kriser i familjen och deras välmående är av stor vikt för rehabiliteringen av den familjemedlem som insjuknat. Genom en djupare förståelse för anhörigas situation kan omvårdnaden bättre individanpassas i syfte att minska psykiska och sociala problem som annars är vanligt förekommande i familjer där en familjemedlem insjuknat i stroke. Syfte: Att beskriva hur anhöriga till en familjemedlem som insjuknat i stroke upplever sin situation. Metod: Studien är kvalitativ. En innehållsanalys gjordes av det manifesta innehållet i fem skrivna berättelser. Resultat: Två kategorier framkom: Emotionella utmaningar och En förändrad livssituation. De anhöriga engagerade sig relaterat till sin kärlek vilket också gjorde att de åsidosatte sig själva. Anhöriga beskrev en stor variation av känslomässiga reaktioner där oro och ovisshet var utmärkande. Anhöriga upplevde ett beroende av andra då livssituationen förändrades. Sociala kontakter blev lidande, de upplevde problem i kommunikationen och de genomgick ett rollbyte till familjemedlemmen som insjuknat . Anhöriga accepterade motvilligt den nya livssituationen. När stödet inte upplevs som rätt anpassat så skapar detta en känsla av beroende hos den anhörige och ett behov att aktivt påverka vårdgivaren till en förändring. 

 

 

 

Abstract [en]

Background: Stroke triggers various reactions and crises in the family and their wellbeing is of great importance for the rehabilitation of the family member who fell ill. Through a deeper understanding of the family situation a better individualized care reduces the psychological and social problems that are otherwise common in families with stroke. Aim: To describe how the relatives of a family member who fell ill in stroke perceive their situation. Method: A qualitative content analysis of the manifest content of five narratives. Results: Two categories emerged: Emotional challenges and A changed life situation. The commitments of relatives were based on their love which subsequently led to the neglect of themselves. Relatives described a variety of emotional reactions in which the concerns and uncertainties were distinctive. Relatives experienced a dependency of others when the situation changed. Social contacts suffered, they experienced problems in communications and their roles in the family underwent a change. Relatives reluctantly accepted their new life situation. When the aid given to families with stroke is not perceived as adapted to their needs, it created a sense of dependence and a need to actively affect the care provider.
