Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how retirement home staff promotes the sense of security of older persons receiving care in retirement homes. In qualitative interviews with staff the following research questions were studied: which factors are described as central for older people’s sense of security? How does retirement home staff promote security for older people in their daily work? Which potentials and difficulties is retirement home staff identifying in promoting security? Theoretical perspectives used in the analysis: the salutogenic perspective and the life-course perspective. Results: relationships, influence and knowledge were central for older people's sense of security. Staff's efforts to promote security were based on creating relationships and on being a handy resource, which created conditions for quality-care. Lack of time was presented as a difficulty. I argue that interpersonal relationships and the promotion of older people’s influence and knowledge should have a central role in care-work.
