Sammanfattning: The purpose of the study was to describe how care givers experience working with people who suffer from dementia and acting out behaviour and to illustrate the importance of the care givers approach. Sixteen caregivers were interviewed from different nursing homes in the middle of Sweden. The interviews were analyzed with qualitative content analysis. The result is divided into two content areas. The analysis of the first content area, care givers experiences of meeting people with dementia and acting out behaviour, resulted in three categories, which deals with the approach. The categories were; to be insecure, to feel a challenge and to be secure. To have co-workers nearby resulted in feeling secure. A challenge was to make the person suffering from dementia feel well once again. To be inexperienced resulted in insecurity among the care givers. The second area of content was, the care givers description of the value of a good approach when meeting people suffering from dementia and acting out behaviour. The analysis of that content area resulted in four categories; to be clear, to be calm, to be experienced and to be accepted. To be calm and use few words was successful. To have knowledge and to be appreciated made the care giving work easier. The result of the study illustrates different approaches from care givers in their contact with patients with dementia and how care givers experienced that contact.
