Abstract [en]

Objective: For many groups of elderly people it is important to be active, which can be hindered by disabilities that come with age. Research has progressed in this area but mostly concerns the elderly living at home. The aim of this study was to examine how residents and staff at a nursing home described the residents everyday doings. Methods: A nursing home was selected in which 15 of the residents and six of the staff were interviewed about the residents activities during an ordinary day and week. Results: The material was analysed using qualitative content analysis in which two categories emerged: shared doings and individual doings. The shared doings were important for supporting the residents in their social and physical activities, but participation in these was often hampered by reduced functions. The individual doings, where the residents own interests can be promoted, were also hampered by their disabilities. Being able to be active and having something to do were emphasized, either continuing with previous activities or participating in shared activities at the nursing home. Conclusions: Receiving care and being forced to adjust to the context at the nursing home had a significant impact on the residents daily doings. Most of the residents needed help to be able to continue performing their activities or to find new ones. The social environment consisting of other residents and staff also influenced the residents activities.

Abstract [sv]

Teknik påverkar äldre personers vardagsliv i stor omfattning. Men hur ser de äldre på teknikens möjligheter att underlätta vardagen?

Vardagsteknik och äldre personer handlar om den grupp av äldre som fortfarande bor i eget, ordinärt boende och i stort sett klarar sin vardag utan hjälpinsatser. Boken beskriver hur teknik kan påverka möjligheter till aktivitet och delaktighet och varför viss teknik kan vara enklare eller svårare att hantera. Fokus ligger på den teknik som omger oss i vardagen och här finns praktiska exempel på hur äldre med hjälp av visst stöd lättare kan använda teknik.

Boken beskriver förekomst och erfarenheter av hjälpmedel samt hur personer som har en kognitiv funktionsnedsättning kan använda teknikstöd för att underlätta vardagen. Den tar upp möjligheter och hinder för äldre att använda modern teknik liksom exempel på hur äldre personer kan introduceras till sociala medier.

Vardagsteknik och äldre personer vänder sig främst till arbets-terapeuter och blivande arbetsterapeuter, men även andra närliggande professioner kan ha nytta och glädje av boken.

Abstract [en]

The article explores how old people who live in their ordinary home, reason and act regarding their ‘material room’ (technical objects, such as household appliances, communication tools and things, such as furniture, personal belongings, gadgets, books, paintings, and memorabilia). The interest is in how they, as a consequence of their aging, look at acquiring new objects and phasing out older objects from the home. This is a broader approach than in most other studies of how old people relate to materiality in which attention is mostly paid either to adjustments to the physical environment or to the importance of personal possessions. In the latter cases, the focus is on downsizing processes (e.g. household disbandment or casser maison) in connection with a move to smaller accommodation or to a nursing home. The article is based on a study in which thirteen older people (median age 87), living in a Swedish town of medium size were interviewed (2012) for a third time. The questions concerned the need and desire for new objects, replacement of broken objects, sorting out the home or elsewhere, most cherished possessions, and the role of family members such as children and grandchildren. The results reveal the complexity of how one handles the material room. Most evident is the participants' reluctance to acquire new objects or even to replace broken things. Nearly all of them had considered, but few had started, a process of sorting out objects. These standpoints in combination resulted in a relatively intact material room, which was motivated by an ambition to simplify daily life or to facilitate the approaching dissolution of the home. Some objects of special value and other cherished objects materialized the connections between generations within a family. Some participants wanted to spare their children the burden of having to decide on what to do with their possessions. Others (mostly men), on the contrary, relied on their children to do the sorting out after they had died.
