Abstract

Background: Caring consciousness and care action are core nursing values. The concept of internal temporal flow offers the potential to provide patients a richer and more meaningful life and better care. The family care phenomenon of psychiatric patients merits re-exploration. Purpose: This study identifies and describes relationships and issues within and between caring consciousness, care actions, and internal temporal flow by describing and interpreting the family care phenomenon of psychiatric patients. This study targets the care-recipient as a primary subject and highlights the orientation of co-existing and co-presenting caring-temporal flow for family and professional care applications and references. Methods: This study conducts secondary data analysis using hermeneutic phenomenology inquiry. Research work was completed using multi-perspectives and multi-methods of data collection, including participant observation, individual in-depth and focus group interviews with psychiatric patients and their family members regarding their feelings, and thoughts and experiences of psychiatric family care. Results: Data analysis results are divided into two parts: (1) the intersection of caregiver's and care receiver's caring-temporal flow and (2) The trajectory and construction of psychiatric patients' self-care temporal flow. Multiple appearances of the caring-temporal flow were formed when caregivers and care receivers engaged in different time and diverse care patterns. Conclusion: Fluctuation and competition among psychiatric patients' and their family members' control and transfer in terms of their lived temporality were influenced by mutual maturity as well as the demand and offering of caring consciousness and care action. The psychiatric patient as a primary subject should return and take control over his or her own mainstream lived temporality, which is the core essence of care.
