Abstract [en]

This study focuses on daily life situation of terminally ill guests residing at a hospice. In the study, interviews were conducted with 9 such guests. Data were analyzed using a method similar to content analysis. Categories emerged that were related to aspects regarding as external and internal essentials for the well-being of the individual at the hospice. These essentials were as follows: encouragement from the staff, the alleviation of pain, a pleasant and calm atmosphere at the hospice, the significance of visits from relatives, the regret of not being able to take care of oneself, and time to reconcile to one's life. These results not only show the need for close community with both family and staff but also the need for privacy to reflect on life.
