Abstract [en]

Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. The individual who fall ill can be in an age between 40-65 years old. When dementia affects individuals at this age, many relatives take their responsibility for taking care of them at home for a long time.

The aim of this study was to illustrate emotions relatives experienced when a close family member's suffering from Alzheimer's disease. The study was intended to show relatives emotions, and therefor four self-biographies were chosen to read. The method used to analyze was a narrative literature review. The emotions that emerged among the relatives who cared for their close family member were grief, tiredness, impotency, fear and frustration, sense of duty and hope. These were divided into six categories with zero to three subcategories. When a close family member suffers from Alzheimer's disease, life changes even for the relative. The nurse role is important in this context to support and provide tools for the relative to be able to handle the situation.
