Next of kin's experiences of living near a seriously ill and dying person in a domestic environment : A study of autobiographies (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Allt mer av den palliativa vården bedrivs i hemmiljö. Sjuksköterskor träffar ofta närstående som vårdar svårt sjuka och döende personer i hemmet. Vården idag tar inte vara på de närståendes möjligheter och kunskaper. Vårdpersonalen fokuserar på den sjuke och glömmer bort de närståendes behov. Syfte: Var att belysa närståendes erfarenheter av att leva nära en svårt sjuk och döende person i hemmiljö Metod: Metoden som användes var en självbiografistudie, där materialet analyserades med en narrativ metod. Resultat: Ur datamaterialet framträdde tre kategorier såsom livet förändras, utsatthet och mod att våga leva här och nu med 10 underkategorier. Konklusion: För att vården av svårt sjuka och döende personer i hemmet ska fungera behöver sjukvården bli mer uppmärksam på de närståendes behov och hur deras resurser kan tas tillvara.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Today it´s more common that next of kin´s take care of seriously ill an dying family members in their home. Nurses often encounter these relatives, and feel that healthcare doesn’t care enough about the next of kin’s possibilities and knowledge. The caregivers often focus on the ill person and forget the needs of the next of kin. Aim: The aim of this study was to highlight next of kin´s experiences of living close to a seriously ill and dying person in their domestic environment. Method: The used method was a study of autobiographies. The analysis was performed with a narrative method. Result: From the analysis five categories emerged life changes, vulnerability and courage to live here and now with ten subcategories. Conclusion: Palliative care in the home requires that caregivers are more aware of the next of kin’s needs and how to make use of their resources.
