Holmgren, J., Emami, A., Eriksson, L. E. and Eriksson, H. (2013). Being perceived as a 'visitor' in the nursing staff's working arena--the involvement of relatives in daily caring activities in nursing homes in an urban community in Sweden.

Abstract

It is both complex and difficult for relatives when a loved one moves into a nursing home and many relatives are not prepared for the realities these new situations entail. Little attention has been paid to scrutinising the involvement of relatives in patient care, particularly in relation to the structures and routines of nursing homes or to the staff's reasoning concerning their involvement.
