How care manager experiences the possibility of self-determination for people with dementia (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie var att undersöka hur biståndshandläggare upplever det möjligt att tillgodose självbestämmanderätten för äldre personer med demenssjukdom. Studien utgår ifrån en tvärsnittsdesign med semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex målstyrt utvalda biståndshandläggare. Genom en tematisk analys framkom två huvudteman

arbetsrollens vardag och en lång process. Huvudtemana innehåller subteman vilket vidare beskriver det som utmärker upplevelsen. Studiens resultat tolkades i förhållande till Lipskys teori om frontlinjebyråkrater. Självbestämmande uttrycktes av biståndshandläggarna som något tidskrävande, utmanande och problematiskt. Vägen till självbestämmandet beskrivs som krokig och varierande, biståndshandläggarna fann sinsemellan liknande sätt att agera för att nå självbestämmande för individen. Arbetets komplexitet och svårighet till trots upplevdes arbetsrollen som spännande och tillfredsställande.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate how care managers find it possible to assure the self-determination of older people with dementia. The study employed a cross-sectional survey design with semi-structured interviews of six purposively sampled care managers. Through a thematic analysis, two main themes emerged,

the work role’s everyday routine and a long process. The main themes containeds sub-themes which further elaborated the care managers’ experience. The results of the study were interpreted from the perspective of Lipsky’s theory of street-level bureaucrats. Assuring self-determination was experienced by the care managers as time-consuming, challenging and problematic. While the path to self-determination was tortuous and varied, the care managers found similar ways to act in order to achieve self-determination. Despite the impression of the work as complex and difficult it was experienced as an exciting and satisfying job.
