"A person out and about" : The view towards elders' participation in activities based on the view of the manager, employees and elders at a nursing home (English)
Abstract [en]

This qualitative study’s purpose was to investigate and compare the view towards activities for elders among the manager, employees and the elders at a nursing home. One manager, two employees and three elders participated in interviews. These interviews showed that the view towards activities among elders was generally positive. The informants stated that the activities contributed with several positive effects. Among them were the elders’ subjectively reported well-being. This indicated correlation between the results and activity theory, implying that activities are a vital part of elders’ well-being. When the informants were asked about the possibilities as well as obstacles of elders engaging in activities, economy and disease were, directly and indirectly, brought up as obstacles. Regarding the economy, the HR perspective but also new public management could serve as explanations. The largest possibility presented however was the employees; if they were passionate about activities, as would the elders also become.

Abstract [sv]

Studien hade som syfte att undersöka och jämföra synen på aktiviteter för äldre bland verksamhetschef, personal och brukare på ett särskilt boende. En verksamhetschef, två personal samt tre brukare deltog som informanter i denna kvalitativa studie bestående av intervjuer. Dessa intervjuer visade att synen på aktiviteter är generellt positiv. Samtliga informanter uppgav aktiviteters positiva effekter, till exempel ett ökat välbefinnande för den äldre. Detta indikerar en korrelation mellan resultaten och aktivitetsteorin, vilken tyder på att aktiviteter är en viktig komponent i den äldres välbefinnande. När informanterna blev tillfrågade vilka möjligheter och hinder som fanns angående brukarnas deltagande i aktiviteter angavs ekonomi och sjukdom, både direkt och indirekt, som hinder av samtliga informanter. Vi tolkar dessa ekonomiska aspekter genom att använda oss av ett HR- samt new public management-perspektiv. Den största möjligheten som de alla uppgav var personalen; om de ansågs engagerade till aktiviteter, blev också de äldre det.
