In eldercare, care managers experiences of their worksituation : A qualitative study of a salutary perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats var att genom ett salutogent perspektiv få en ökad förståelse för, inom äldreomsorgen verksamma, biståndshandläggares arbetssituation samt att undersöka vad som kan bidra till att biståndshandläggares arbetssituation upplevs som lättare och mindre påfrestande. Metoden som använts är kvalitativa intervjuer där sex biståndshandläggare verksamma i Värmland har intervjuats. Intervjuerna analyserades genom teman ur KASAM och resulterade i kategorier under varje tema. Under temat begriplighet framkom att biståndshandläggare får stöd från sina kollegor men att de också önskar att det fanns mer resurser för handledning. Biståndshandläggare utför mer än vad som ingår i arbetsbeskrivningen. Under temat hanterbarhet framgår att hög arbetsbelastning hanteras genom att biståndshandläggarna måste planera, strukturera och prioritera. Kollegornas stöd gör arbetet lättare att hantera då de genom att prata med varandra bearbetar känslomässigt påfrestande delar av arbetet. De uttryckte olika behov av att reflektera över sitt arbete. Biståndshandläggare har en stor frihet att planera sin egen arbetsdag och de samverkar med andra professioner. Under temat meningsfullhet framgår att biståndshandläggare finner mening i att göra skillnad för den enskilde. Vårt resultat visar att biståndshandläggarna är utsatta för stress i sitt arbete och att de också har förmåga att möta stressen, men förmågan att möta stressen minskar när arbetsbelastningen blir för hög. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to, by using a salutogenic perspective, achieve a better understanding of eldercare, care managers’ work situation and to explore which factors contribute to the administrator's job situation being experienced as easier and less stressful. The method used were qualitative interviews where six care managers active in Värmland were interviewed. The interviews were analyzed by themes from the Sence Of Coherense and led to categories under each theme. Under the theme comprehensibility was found that care managers receive support from their colleagues but they wish for more resources for professional guidance counselling. Care managers perform more duties than what is included in their job description. Under the theme manageability it shows how administrators have to manage their, high workloads by planning, structurizing and prioritizing. The work is easier to handle when they recieve support from colleagues by talking to each other about strenuous parts of the work. They expressed different needs to reflect on their work. Care managers have a freedom to plan their own and they do collaborate and interact with other professionals. Under the theme meaningfulness the results show that care managers find meaning when they make a difference for their clients. Our results show that care managers are exposed to stress in their work and that they have their own resources cope with. The ability to handle stress is reduced when they feel that the work load is too high.
