Assessor: Jan Petersson
This study examine generations in three different age–attitudes towards elderly care in the future. Today there is an ongoing debate in Sweden concerning the care of older people. The main focus in the debate is that there is cut down on personnel and resources in the care of the elderly. We have focused on the Kalmar region, since our intention is not to compare with other regions. The study is based on individual experiences and conceptions of the people that participated in this examine, in order to link it to differences and similarities from a generational perspective. To carry out this task, we used a qualitative approach with semi-structured individual interviews. The result is our complied themes from the interviews. The shared beliefs of all participants were that they felt concerned about the factors that can influence the future of their elderly´s care and wellbeing.
Key words: Care of older people, generations, differences, similarities.
