Abstract

Neurological conditions may cause sequelae in patients, who often need special home care. Family is part of this care proc-ess and, for that reason, the Orientation Group to Relatives of Adult Patients with Neurological Sequelae provides individual guid-ance to relatives. A qualitative study was developed with the aim of finding which difficulties prevent patients’ relatives to attend orientation meetings. To do so, five relatives of hospitalized patients participating in the group were interviewed. Content analysis of their statements revealed two categories: leaving the patient alone and availability to look after the patient. Results showed the need to develop group activities, mainly at the bedside, considering relatives’ nonadherence to orientation meetings and their need to receive guidance.
