Resumen

VILLANUEVA LUMBRERAS, A.; GARCIA-VIVAR, C.; CANGA ARMAYOR, N.  y  CANGA ARMAYOR, A.. Effectiveness of family interventions in nursing homes: a systematic review. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2015, vol.38, n.1, pp.93-104. ISSN 1137-6627.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1137-66272015000100010.

The process of nursing home placement can be a stressful event for both the dependent elderly person and the family. During admission, especially the first few months, the family may suffer feelings of loss, sadness, failure and guilt. In this context, support and guidance from health professionals are essential to address the needs of residents and families through effective interventions. The aim of this systematic review is to identify the most effective interventions to help families during the process of institutionalization of a relative in a nursing home. Two types of family interventions were identified: those that focused on family-staff relationship and those that focused on family support groups, the latter being the most effective. On the other hand, most interventions have an individualistic approach, focusing on the primary caregiver. Finally, there is a shortage of quality studies that present the results of family interventions in the geriatric field and also a lack of such studies in the Spanish context.

Palabras clave : Family caregiver; Nursing home; Interventions.
