Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to examine how older individuals over 80 years without dementia in a nursing home experience their daily routines, the physical living environment, meal situations and opportunities for physical activity indoors and outdoors. The method for the study was semi-structured interviews with four voluntary elderly living in a nursing home. The results were divided into three main themes which demonstrate the experiences that were raised during the interviews. Regarding physical activity and outdoor stay, the informants reported unstimulating gymnastics, helpful staff, and requests for more needlework. Regarding meal situations the respondents mentioned nice decoration in the dining room, a desire for sleep before breakfast and too large portion sizes. Regarding the living environment the informants reported a pleasant environment, good service and demented elderly who interfere. The conclusion of the study was that the older individuals generally felt well-being in the nursing home. Some experiences suggest that there was a lack of attention from the nursing staff to take account the older people’s wishes regarding for example portion sizes. The interviews also showed that the social interaction between some of the older people could have been better.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med undersökningen var att undersöka hur äldre individer över 80 år utan demenssjukdom på ett äldreboende upplever de dagliga rutinerna på äldreboendet beträffande den fysiska boendemiljön, måltidssituationen samt fysisk aktivitet och utomhusvistelse. Metoden för undersökningen var semi-strukturerade intervjuer med fyra frivilliga äldre som bodde på ett äldreboende. Resultatet uppdelades i tre huvudteman som påvisade vilka upplevelser som togs upp under intervjuerna. Delar ur resultatet angående fysisk aktivitet och utomhusvistelse var ostimulerande gymnastik, hjälpsam personal samt önskemål om mer handarbete. Angående måltidssituationerna var iakttagna delar ur resultatet trevlig dekoration i matsalen, önskemål om sovmorgon före frukost och för stora portionsstorlekar. Angående boendemiljö framkom upplevelser om en trivsam miljö, bra service och dementa äldre som stör. Slutsatsen av undersökningen var att de äldre generellt upplevde situationen på äldreboendet som trivsam. En del upplevelser antydde att det saknades uppmärksamhet från personalen att beakta de äldres önskemål angående till exempel för stora portionsstorlekar. En del upplevelser från de äldre visade att den sociala interaktionen dem mellan kunde varit bättre.
