Leisure Activities for the Elderly in Nursing Homes, Factors Influencing the Decision-Making (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den ökande andelen äldre i Sverige kommer ställa allt mer krav på samhället och äldreomsorgen. Äldre kan undvika förluster av funktionsförmåga genom att fortsätta att vara aktiv. Fysisk aktivitet, social gemenskap samt en känsla av meningsfullhet är viktiga faktorer för äldres hälsa och välbefinnande. Syftet med denna studie är att beskriva vilka fritidsaktiviteter som erbjuds på särskilda boenden inom äldreomsorgen och vad som påverkar beslutsprocessen vid val av aktiviteter. En kvalitativ intervjustudie genomfördes med tio deltagare. Alla inkluderade deltagare arbetade på särskilt boende och ansvarade för val av aktiviteter samt att aktiviteterna genomfördes. Resultatet visade att det erbjöds många olika aktiviteter till exempel musik, dans och promenader. Det förekom olika typer av stöd i arbetet för deltagarna men även hinder. Brukarna på deltagarnas boenden hade möjlighet att påverka vilka aktiviteter som erbjuds. Det framgick också att vissa deltagare anpassar aktiviteterna efter brukarnas aktivitetsförmåga. Deltagarna har ett behov av stöd på boendet men även utanför den egna verksamheten. Arbetsterapeuter med sin kompetens skulle kunna uppfylla en del av det behovet. 

Abstract [en]

The growing proportion of elderly people in Sweden will impose increasing demands on society and elderly care. The elderly can avoid loss of functional ability by continuing to be active. Physical activity, social interaction and a sense of purpose are important determinants of older people's health and well-being. The purpose of this study is to investigate leisure activities offered at nursing homes providing elderly care and determine what affects the decision-making process in the selection of activities. This was a qualitative study, conducted with ten participants. All the participants worked at nursing homes and were responsible for selecting and implementing the activities. The result showed that many different activities were offered such as music, dancing and walks. There were different types of support in the work of the participants but also obstacles. The elderly at the participants’ nursing homes had the opportunity to influence the activities offered. It also appeared that some participants adapted activities to the users’ activity capacity. The participants had a need for support in the nursing home but also outside their own organization. Occupational therapists could meet part of that need with their expertise.
