The association between participation in cultural activities and sense of coherence among seniors living in a nursing home. : A survey study on two nursing homes in central Sweden. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet var att undersöka om det fanns någon association mellan deltagande i kulturella aktiviteter och känsla av sammanhang bland äldre personer på två äldreboenden.

Metod: Ett frågeformulär baserat på Antonovskys SOC-13-formulär med tillagda egenformulerade frågor, såsom kön, ålder, deltagande i kulturella aktiviteter och funktionsnivå användes.  Frågeformuläret delades ut till 76 personer över 65 år utan demenssjukdom på två äldreboenden i mellansverige och besvarades av 40 respondenter. Materialet bearbetades och analyserades i statistikprogrammet SPSS, där beskrivande statistik framställdes och ett chi-två-test samt en logistisk regression genomfördes.

Resultat: Ingen statistiskt signifikant association mellan deltagande i kulturella aktiviteter och känsla av sammanhang fanns. Däremot fanns en association mellan funktionsnivå och KASAM-poäng.  Ju lägre funktionsnivå, det vill säga ju mer hjälp respondenten behövde i sin vardag, desto lägre känsla av sammanhang tenderade respondenten att ha.

Slutsats: Funktionsnivå verkade ha högre inverkan på en individs känsla av sammanhang än deltagande i kulturella aktiviteter i den givna studiepopulationen. 

Abstract [en]

Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there was any association between participation in cultural activities and sense of coherence among seniors living in two nursing homes.

Methods: A questionnaire based on Antonovskys SOC-13-questionaire was used, with added self-formulated questions including gender, age, level of physical function and participation in cultural activities. The questionnaire was distributed to 76 people 65 years and older without dementia at two nursing homes in central Sweden and 40 respondents answered the questionnaire. The material was processed and analyzed in the statistic computer program SPSS, where descriptive statistics were prepared and a chi-square analysis and logistic regression analysis was performed.

Results: No statistically significant relationship between participation in cultural activities and sense of coherence could be seen. However, there was a correlation between the level of function and SOC scores. The lower level of function, i.e. the more help the respondent needed in everyday life, the lower sense of coherence.

Conclusion: Functional level seems to have greater impact on an individual's sense of coherence than participation in cultural activities in the given study population.
