Abstract [en]

Our aim was to investigate connections between Swedish family caregivers’ health and providing care for an ill relative by conducting a systematic search and synthesis of previous research. We analyzed 31 articles using first qualitative content analysis then hermeneutic analysis. Analysis resulted in three derived themes—sliding sideways into caregiving, caregiving in reciprocity, and caregiving in disintegration—and a main interpretation and conceptual model of Swedish family caregivers’ health—caregiving in a sphere of beliefs. Results indicated that Swedish family caregivers’ beliefs, experiences of reciprocity, or nonsupport, together with quality of interpersonal relationships and feelings of responsibility and guilt, have a profound impact on their health. These results point to the value and importance of nurses gaining an understanding of family caregivers’ beliefs and experiences of reciprocity or nonsupport to effectively promote family caregivers’ health.
