Abstract [en]

Background: Care of elderly changed in the 1990s in Sweden; treatment sessions were shortened in particular. Consequently, patients have a greater need for care when returning home from hospital. This task may seem overwhelming and caregivers can feel lonely, worn out and resigned in their situation. Aim: Explore how caregivers experience caring for an elderly next of kin in ordinary living. Method: Qualitative content analysis of semi-structured interviews with eleven Swedish caregivers. Findings: Caregivers experienced their situation as something to be endured. In particular, they felt a need for belonging, a need for controlling everyday life, and a need for support. Conclusion: Home care nurses, health centres and home support workers should be aware of and respect caregivers’ needs in terms of support.
