Abstract

Objective: To investigate care strategies in older people with Alzheimer's Disease, in the 2014-2018 historical series.

Methodology: Integrative Literature Review was conducted in the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), Latin American Health Sciences Literature (LILACS) and Nursing Databases (BDENF) databases.

Results: 10 articles were found and analyzed using IRAMUTEC software. This recognized the separation of the corpus into 10 initial context units (ICU), with the emergence of the following categories: 1) Family dynamics and care; 2) Nursing care for the elderly with Alzheimer's disease; 3) Geronto-technologies and their use for the elderly with Alzheimer's disease.

Conclusion: The disease interferes in the ability to meet the basic needs of the elderly, thus the need for specific care arises, and it is essential that the nurse outlines his therapeutic plan also to the caregiver and the elderly.

Keywords:
Aged, Alzheimer disease, aging, nursing diagnosis.
