ABSTRACT

The purpose of this thesis has been to increase the knowledge about the life situation for next of kin who are caring for the elderly and mentally disabled. Also, the impact of “supportive actions” on the quality of life for the next of kin has been assessed. This study tried to answer the following questions:

 How do next of kin perceive their every day life.

 Do supportive actions lead to a better situation in your every day life.

 Do supportive actions raise the quality of life for next of kin

To answer the questions above a qualitative method was used. Individual interviews were chosen to get a deeper understanding of how the target group was experiencing their life situation. The participants in our study were six women, three were home nursing their husbands and the other three were caring for their parents.

Through the interviews it was concluded that their life situation was trying and strenuous before the “supportive actions” begun. Stress, anxiety and confinement were common place. In the study it was identified that the “supportive actions” had a positive influence on the life situation and as a consequence the next of kin had a more manageable everyday life after the actions were implemented. The support created the necessary conditions for an increased quality of.

SAMMANFATTNING

Syftet med denna c-uppsats var att få en ökad förståelse för anhörigas vardag som ger omsorg/vård till äldre och långtidssjuka samt om de stödinsatser som ges har någon betydelse för deras livskvalité. De frågeställningar som vi utgick ifrån var:

 Hur uppfattar anhöriga sin vardag.

 Leder stödinsatserna till en förbättrad livssituation.

 Förbättrar stödinsatserna livskvaliteten hos anhöriga.

Vi använde en kvalitativ metod för att besvara syftet och vi valde personliga intervjuer för att få en djupare förståelse hur informanterna upplevde sin livssituation. Deltagarna i vår studie var sex kvinnor, varav tre av dem var anhörigvårdare till sin make och de övriga var omsorgsgivare till sina föräldrar.

Genom intervjuerna med de anhöriga har vi kommit fram till att i livssituationen innan de fick stödinsatserna, så upplevde anhörigvårdarna och omsorgsgivarna att situationen var påfrestande och ansträngd. Många upplevde att det skapades stress, oro och en bundenhet i vardagen. Vi kunde i vår studie se att stödinsatserna har påverkat livssituation i rätt riktning och att många i dag upplevde att deras vardag har blivit mer hanterbar och att stödet har förbättrad livskvalitén.
