"Much is on us care managers" : - A qualitative study on how care managers in elderly care experience the work with the elderly who have an alcohol problem (English)
Abstract [en]

Although alcohol consumption among the elderly is rising this is still modestly noted. Care managers in elderly care come in contact with elderly people. The purpose with the study was therefore to examine how care managers experience the work with elderly people with alcohol problems and six qualitative interviews have been conducted. Empirical data has been analyzed with thematic analysis and linked to previous research and Hasenfelds theory about

people-processing, people-sustaining and people-changing.

The results show that care managers experience routines regarding elderly with alcohol problems, does not differ much from traditional elderly cases. These cases demand a higher level of cooperation between different departments, because they lack resources to help the elderly. Important factors in the work are considered to be motivational work, building a trust and a functioning interaction. They request more knowledge about elderly and alcohol, support from colleagues and the substance abuse unit are considered important.

Abstract [sv]

Även om alkoholkonsumtionen bland den äldre generationen stiger är detta fortfarande blygsamt uppmärksammat. Biståndshandläggare inom äldreomsorgen kommer i kontakt med många äldre i sitt arbete. Syftet med studien var därför att undersöka hur biståndshandläggare upplever arbetet med äldre som har en alkoholproblematik. För att besvara studiens syfte har kvalitativa intervjuer genomförts med sex biståndshandläggare i skilda kommuner. Empirin har analyserats med tematisk analys och kopplats till tidigare forskning samt Hasenfelds teori om

people-processing, people-sustaining och people-changing.

Resultatet visar att biståndshandläggare upplever att det som skiljer ärenden rörande äldre med alkoholproblematik rutinmässigt från traditionella äldreomsorgsärenden är att de kräver en högre grad av samverkan mellan olika funktioner då biståndshandläggare inte besitter resurser att hjälpa dessa äldre. Viktiga faktorer i arbetet anses vara motivationsarbete, skapa en förtroendefull relation och uppnå en fungerande samverkan. Biståndshandläggarna efterfrågar mer kunskap om äldre och alkohol och stöd från kollegor samt missbruksenheten upplevs vara viktigt.
