Data were collected using semi-structured interviews from nine nurses working in Health Service Facilities for Elderly, Dementia Units and Nursing Homes. The nurses' emotions caring for the elderly with dementia were as follows: 1) Anger toward the patients' behaviors, 2) Being at a loss how to cope with the behavior of the dementia patients, 3) Being puzzled over ways to deal with the behavior of the patients, 4) Lack of confidence in judging the symptoms of the patients, 5) Inability to evaluate their own care, 6) Dilemma about providing proper care, 7) Worries about too much responsibility, 8) Lack of sense of achievment.
