Value based work at night : A qualitative study of how employees in night patrols describe the care work in elderly care based on the national fundamental values (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how employees in Swedish elderly care, more specific night patrols, describe their care work based on the national value base. A qualitative ap-proach has been used as a method in this study, with semi-structured interviews as a base. To gather empirical material, seven people who are assistant nurses and care assistants, working in Swedish elderly care as night patrols, were interviewed. The theoretical point of departure has been professional ethics, proximity ethics, Martin Buber´s I-and-Thou-theory. The theo-ry has been helpful whilst analysing the empirical material. The national value-based work describes how caregivers perceive when a I-Thou-relationship is achieved. In such relation-ship the caregiver and the elderly are in a subject-subject-relationship. In a opposite relation-ship the caregiver and the elderly are in a subject-object-relationship with a distance between them. In such relationship the caregivers don´t feel they have done a value based work. The results shows that a certain objectification must be done in order for the working process to function. This is also accepted by the employees, as long as there is still a certain balance be-tween the subject-subject relationship and the subject-object relationship. The results also shows that the experience of creating meaningfulness for the elderly seems to be weaker than the creation of security.
