Abstract [en]

The work as a personal assistant is sometimes associated with certain problems. Studies have shown that personal assistants often experience indistinct rules and roles concerning what should or should not be included in their duties. This study was undertaken to evaluate problems associated with the profession as a personal assistant, how widespread they are and how they are dealt with. Specifically, the study evaluates if the personal assistants have to do duties that they consider they are not assigned to do. Different roles (formal as informal) are also discussed which may be of current interest in this study, but also how we see people on basis of ethics and moral. In order to examine how widespread the ambiguity regarding the duties of the personal assistant, a quantitative study using a questionnaire was used in this study. The result of the questionnaire showed that in half of the cases the assistant had a different opinion than the user, which duties was included in the work. Moreover, the results also showed that the personal assistant would still do what the user wanted them to do, even though they did not think it was included in their duties.
