Accessibility for Elderly People Contributes to Inclusion : A Qualitative Study on A bus for everyone. (English)
Abstract [sv]

För att äldre personer ska kunna utföra meningsfulla aktiviteter och känna gemenskap med andra krävs att de kan transportera sig. Det är viktigt för att bibehålla god hälsa och uppleva livskvalitet. Många äldre har svårighet att transportera sig med vanliga bussar på grund av funktionsnedsättningar som kommer med stigande ålder. Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva vad En buss för alla har för betydelse för äldres delaktighet i samhället. Studiens design var kvalitativ, en målinriktad sampling gjordes och undersökningsgruppen valdes ut från förutbestämda kriterier. Undersökningsgruppen bestod av sex kvinnor och fem män, alla över 55 år som har rest med En buss för alla. Som datainsamlingsinstrument användes ostrukturerade intervjuer med öppna frågor. Det visade sig att det är en kombination av bussens utformning och miljön samt personerna runt omkring som är betydelsefullt för delaktigheten. Detta bidrar i sin tur till att alla kan delta och uppleva gemenskap. Studiens slutsats var att En buss för alla ger ökad tillgänglighet och samhörighet för äldre personer, vilket bidrar till en ökad delaktighet i samhället. 

Abstract [en]

In order to perform meaningful activities and feel community with others when you are older, you need to be able to transport yourself; this is of importance to maintain good health and experience good quality of life. Due to different disabilities that come with increasing age, many older people find it difficult to travel with regular buses. The purpose of this study was to describe what meaning A bus for everyone has for older peoples’ participation in society. The design of the study was qualitative, targeted sampling was done, and the study group was selected from predetermined criteria. The study group consisted of six women and five men; all aged over 55 years and all had traveled with A bus for everyone. An unstructured interview with open questions was used for data collection; the result showed that a combination of bus design, environment, and the people surrounding them was of importance. These factors contributed to everyone being able to participate, which results in older people feeling less disabled and feeling a sense of belonging in a community. The conclusion was that A bus for everyone provides increased accessibility and belonging for older people, contributing to participation in society.
