Abstract [no]

Hensikten med denne studien var å søke kunnskap om brukerne ved dagsenter i Norge, og hvilken betydning det hadde for deres hverdag at dette tilbudet eksisterte. Dybdeintervju med ni brukere av dagsenter ble foretatt. I innsamling og analyse av data ble Grounded Theory brukt. En kjernekategori kom frem: Gjennom aktivitet og sosial kontakt med andre motvirkes opplevelsen av sosiale savn og depresjoner. Funnene viste at det var mye ensomhet og isolasjon blant informantene. Dagsenter-tilbud to-tre ganger i uken ga dem mulighet for et sosialt nettverk og sosial aktivitet. Dette førte til at de følte seg friskere og ved bedre helse. De viktigste funnene var at dagsentrene representerte fellesskap med andre eldre, aktivitet, trivsel ,og omsorg.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to gain more insight about the users of day-care centres for the elderly and how their every-day lives benefited from having access to this service. For the purpose of this study, in-depth interviews with nine users were conducted. The principle of Grounded Theory was used in the data collection and analyses. One of the core categories that emerged was: The feeling of social deprivation and depression is amended through activities and social contact with other senior citizens. The results showed that loneliness and isolation were widespread among the participants. Having access to the day-care service two-three times a week provided them with a social network and social activities. This, in turn, made them feel more comfortable and in better general health. The most important findings were that the day-care centre represented a sense of community with other senior citizens, activity, a sense of well-being, and care
