"In order to live a life like others" : A qualitative study regarding personal assistance related to occupational activities (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the experiences and perceptions of representatives for user-organizations regarding personal assistance at occupational activities, such as labour, studies and daily activity centers. This in order to gain knowledge about the meaning of personal assistance in regard to these kinds of occupations. We used a qualitative method with a social constructionist approach and interviewed a total of eight representatives from six different user-organizations. The study was based on their experiences and perceptions regarding the possibilities and limitations to personal assistance related to occupational activities. In order to interpret our empirical material we used empowerment as a theoretical concept. The study shows that personal assistance makes it possible for many users to work, study and participate in daily activity centers, which also has effects on other aspects of the users life. These effects sometimes differ between users and type of activities. Improvements regarding self-perception, health, social relationships and inclusion occurs however within all categories.
