Abstract [sv]

En meningsfull tillvaro

Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka i vilken grad en omsorgsmottagare upplever en meningsfull tillvaro utifrån beviljade hemtjänstinsatser. Studien har bedrivits genom en halvstrukturerad, kvalitativ intervjumetod med omsorgsmottagare, omsorgsgivare samt biståndshandläggare och analyser av empirin har utgått från symbolisk interaktionism och dramaturgisk rollteori. Vi har funnit att det som är centralt för den enskilde för att känna meningsfullhet är den sociala interaktionen tillsammans med andra människor, att boendemiljön är trivsam och önskvärd samt att den enskilde har en känsla av trygghet. Trots det faktum att omsorgs- och serviceinsatser, i olika grad, påverkar dessa aspekter är studiens viktigaste slutsats att de enskilda vanligtvis inte sammankopplar beviljade insatser med känslan av meningsfullhet. 

Abstract [en]

A meaningful existence

The purpose of this study was to examine the degree to which a care recipient is experiencing a meaningful existence by established homecare services. The study was conducted through a structured, qualitative interview method with care recipients, carers and care managers, analysis of empirical data has been based on symbolic interaction and dramaturgical perspective. We have found that crucial for the individual to feel meaningfulness is social interaction with other people, that the living environment is satisfying and desirable, and that the individual also possesses a sense of security. Despite the fact that the home care services, to varying degrees, affect these aspects, the study's main conclusion is that individuals usually do not associate the granted proceedings with the sense of meaningfulness
