The psychosocial working in elderly care : - among the assistant nurses in retirement home. (English)
Abstract [en]

The study was conducted among 100 assistant nurses working in six different residential home. The main purpose of the study was to increase awareness of the psychosocial work environment of assistant nurses in retirement home. In order to fulfill my purpose, I have chosen to use three questions: Have the period of employment in the workplace any impact on how the assistant nurses experience the psychosocial work environment? In the future it will become a lack of staff in elderly care. How do those working in elderly care today feel about the future? How important are the manager and colleagues for how assistant nurses are experiencing the psychosocial work environment?

In order to answer the questions a quantitative method and a questionnaire has been used. The results were analyzed using SPSS and presented in the form of frequency tables, cross tabulations, chi square test and the sperman rho test.

The results showed that the period of employment did not had an impact on the staffs´ experience of the psychosocial work environment. But what proved to be important was whether they felt their work as stressful. Where those who have worked between 3-10 years felt that the duties were more stressful than those with a shorter or longer period of employment.
