The aim of the present study was to describe nursing staff´s experience of working with everyday rehabilitation in nursing homes. The author conducted five semi-structured interviews with nursing staff at four nursing homes in a municipality in Norrbotten, Sweden. An interview guide was used during the data collection with three main questions during the interviews. The data were analyzed according to qualitative content analysis and resulted in three categories:”The everyday rehabilitation as part of everyday work”,”The nursing staff`s approaches” and ”The working group´s role and function”. The result showed that the nursing staff had a positive attitude towards everyday rehabilitation; the nursing staff felt that there were many benefits of working in an everyday rehabilitative way. Further, the nursing staff who participated in the study guided the elderly for example "put their hands on their back". The way to work and care for the elderly were shaped by the working group, often by the nursing staff´s own preferences and what they would appreciate if they were in the same situation as the elderly they work whit. Additional, the nursing staff felt that the group played an important role in everyday rehabilitation, because they could discuss and make agreements about how the care should be conducted. The study concluded that nursing staff are positive to everyday rehabilitation, but they lack a clear structure for the work whit everyday rehabilitation. The study may also shows an area in which occupational therapist and occupational therapy could provide a lot of knowledge for continued work whit everyday rehabilitation.
