Living with dementia : The experiences of diagnosed persons (engelsk)
Abstract [en]

Background: As the population is getting older, the number of people with dementia is steadily increasing. This places great demands on nursing staff, both in the treatment and care of these persons. Instead of only focusing on the diagnosis and its symptoms, is important to ensure the individual needs. Aim: The aim of this study was to elucidate diagnosed person's experiences of living with dementia. Method: Ten qualitative articles were analyzed. The analysis resulted in four themes and twelve sub themes.

Results: The result showed that family, relatives and friends are playing an important role in the quality of life for persons with dementia. Difficulties arose because of the symptoms of the disease, which could lead to social isolation. It was considered paramount to still be able to perform meaningful activities. On the other side the result showed, that both people and the environment were considered as impedimental factors, leading to feelings of lost dignity. The diagnosis could be met through acceptance or denial. This created different types of strategies in daily life. Many times fears arose about the future and the fear of getting worse was often greater than the fear of death.Conclusion: Dementia entails many difficulties and challenges, both for the person with dementia and the surrounding people. It's necessary to adapt both environment and treatment, so that person with dementia can continue to live a normal life as possible. We can achieve this by offer support and help, both physically and psychologically, without offend or cause distress.
