Jag trodde aldrig det kunde vara så bra att vara pensionär: En intervjustudie av äldres tankar kring åldrande och livsstil i ett seniorboende
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
The aim for this thesis is to illuminate expectations and conceptions of senior housing from an individual perspective of seniors and how senior housing is put in relation to the process of ageing. Safety, community and accessibility are main notions for the seniors and therefore also in this essay. The method used for writing, analysing and interviewing is Grounded theory, with basis from social constructionism. Theoretical background comes from theories developed in social gerontology and gerotranscendence. These theories helps to give perspective to the analysis of the interviews. Good connection with neighbours, less work with gardening and housing, and to be better prepared for future problems are main reasons that makes this senior housing interesting, as well as to be able to continue a valuable lifestyle with a self chosen amount of activities and social company with friends and family.
