Sammanfattning

Psykiatrireformen, som skedde mellan samhälle och psykiatrisk vård, har bidragit till att det lagts en större börda på den anhörige. Forskningen har till stor del fokuserat på bördan till att vara anhörig medan anhörigas livstillfredsställelse har hamnat i skymundan. Sedan 2009 är Sveriges kommuner skyldiga att tillhandahålla anhörigstöd.

Syftet var att jämföra anhöriga som deltagit i anhörigstöd mot de som inte deltagit i anhörigstöd gällande livstillfredställelse och grad av upplevd anhörigbörda. Studien är en jämförande kvantitativ undersökning som genomfördes genom en webbenkätundersökning. Beroendevariablerna var anhörigbörda och livstillfredställelse som mättes med hjälp av Satisfaction with life scale (SWLS) och Burden Inventory for Relatives to persons with Psychotic disturbances (BIRP). Oberoendevariabeln var anhörigstöd, med betingelserna deltagande och icke-deltagande. Av 95 respondenter hade 23 deltagit i anhörigstöd, 72 hade inte deltagit i anhörigstöd.

Det påvisades inte någon signifikant skillnad mellan de som deltagit i anhörigstöd mot de som inte deltagit gällande livstillfredställelse och anhörigbörda. Således kan resultatet tolkas som att anhörigstöd varken ger högre eller lägre grad av upplevd anhörigbörda eller livstillfredställelse.

Abstract

Psychiatry Reform, which took place between social and psychiatric care, has contributed to putting a greater burden on relatives of the mentally ill. The research has largely focused on the burden while life satisfaction has been overlooked. Since 2009, Swedish municipalities are obliged to provide support to relatives.

The purpose of the study was to compare family members' current life satisfaction and family burden between those who had received family support and those who had not received family support. The study was a comparative quantitative study conducted through an online survey. Dependent variables were family burden and life satisfaction as measured by Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) and Burden Inventory of Relatives to person with Psychotic Disturbances (BIRP). The independent variable was participation in family support. The survey participants were distributed into groups of those who had received and those who had not received family support. Of the 95 respondents 23 had received family support.

It did not show any significant difference between those who took part in family support to those who have not participated current life satisfaction and family burden. The result can be interpreted as support for relatives neither produces higher or lower level of perceived relative burden or life satisfaction.
