The study aims to examine the communication between older immigrants and nurses at several nursing homes.
Emphasis has been placed on clarifying both parties’ experience of communication regarding the older immigrant’s idiomatic difficulties. The following questions were used in the creation of the study: How does the older immigrant communicate with the personnel at a nursing home? How does the older immigrant enjoy their residence at the nursing home? How do language difficulties influence the older immigrant’s possibility to express their self?
In the study eight qualitative interviews were made with four older immigrants who lives in nursing homes and four nurses working in a nursing home. The survey shows that the overall problem in the communication is the older immigrant’s lack of language. One possible measure is that the personnel tries to integrate the older immigrant in common activities in the nursing home.
