    Att studera funktionshinder och åldrande: en bok om metoderfarenheter2015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här boken är att presentera och reflektera över metoder som tillämpades inom ett forskningsprogram där funktionshinder och åldrande studerades1 och som var förlagt till Nationella institutet för forskning om äldre och åldrande (NISAL) vid Linköpings universitet. Inom programmet tillämpades ett antal olika kvalitativa ansatser och metoder, inom ramen för varierande betingelser. Det är mot bakgrund av dessa metoderfarenheter som vi skrivit denna bok. Fokus är inte i första hand på vad vi kommit fram till genom våra studier utan hur vi gjort det och på de erfarenheter, möjligheter och utmaningar som olika metoder varit förknippade med. Våra diskussioner handlar också om vilka praktiska och metodologiska slutsatser som kan dras av våra erfarenheter och iakttagelser. Vi reflekterar över kvalitativa metoder, med exempel från frågor om urval, intervjumetoder, forskarrollen och teoriskapande.

    Vad innebär det att leva ett långt liv och åldras med en fysisk eller intellektuell funktionsnedsättning som man haft i många år? Det var den övergripande frågan som studerades inom olika delstudier i det forskningsprogram inom vilket vi gjort våra erfarenheter och som belyses i bokens kapitel. Programmet tillämpade ett livsloppsperspektiv, vilket betyder att innebörden i funktionshinder och åldrande förstås och tolkas utifrån hela livets dynamik, och där åldrandet ses som en livslång process. Tidsbegreppet är centralt i denna ansats och det är ett mångdimensionellt begrepp där både individens tid och den historiska tiden tas i beaktande (Jeppsson Grassman 2008a; Jeppsson Grassman & Whitaker 2013). Det betyder också att vi i boken diskuterar livsloppet som metodologiskt verktyg, både dess möjligheter och svårigheter, med utgångspunkt från våra erfarenheter.

    Idag finns det stort antal metodböcker som behandlar kvalitativa metoder (se till exempel Gubrium & Holstein 2002; Denzin & Lincoln 2011; Silverman 2011). Det kan vara fråga om allmänt inriktade handböcker, men numera inte så sällan också böcker som fokuserar på speciella discipliner inom samhällsvetenskap eller omvårdnadsforskning, etc. Det kan också handla om metodböcker, kapitel eller artiklar, som knyter an till speciella grupper och de metodfrågor som därigenom kan aktualiseras (se till exempel Nind 2008; Wenger 2002 ). Det har hittills inte funnits någon speciell metodbok inom just vårt studerade område. De perspektiv vi har tillämpat har hittills också varit ganska outforskade. Men ett lika viktigt argument är att de flesta metodböcker beskriver hur man gör och inte, som i vårt fall, betingelserna kring – möjligheterna och utmaningarna – och konsekvenserna av att använda olika metoder. För att ta del av forskning om de sistnämnda frågorna får man som regel gå till metodkapitel i avhandlingar, vilka ibland, men inte alltid, belyser de här frågorna. Det finns naturligtvis också vetenskapliga artiklar som tar upp metodologiska erfarenheter på olika sätt. Men här saknas ofta en mer övergripande bild.

    Krävs det egentligen några speciella metoder för att studera funktionshinder och åldrande? Nej, det kan vara svårt att hävda. Men vårt område är förknippat med speciella betingelser, vilka får betydelse för den forskning man vill genomföra. Det handlar om ett etiskt känsligt område. Frågor som berör funktionshinder och livet för människor med funktionsnedsättningar är också påtagligt ”normativt impregnerat” när det gäller vilka perspektiv som anses vara politiskt korrekta för forskningen och beträffande vem som ”har rätt” att forska inom området överhuvudtaget. I flera av bokens kapitel reflekterar författarna över den här typen av frågor. Men ”det speciella” är inte vårt syfte i sig. Istället menar vi att vi, genom att belysa våra frågor och perspektiv mot bakgrund av vårt speciella område och dess betingelser och våra studerade grupper, illustrerar allmänna metodfrågor och deras praktiska implikationer. Det specifika kan ofta tydliggöra allmängiltiga mönster. Samtidigt – och det är viktigt att understryka – är de metodologiska frågor vi tar upp sådana som sällan diskuteras överhuvudtaget och de grupper som intervjuats kommer sällan till tals.

    Boken riktar sig främst till högskolestudenter inom samhälls- och beteendevetenskap, liksom till omsorgsutbildningar och vårdvetenskap, mer specifikt i samband med metodutbildning och uppsatsskrivande. Men även doktorander och mer etablerade forskare hoppas och tror vi kan ha användning av våra metodologiska reflektioner. Vår bedömning är också att de erfarenheter som redovisas kan vara av praktisk nytta för yrkesverksamma inom områden som socialt arbete, vård och omsorg.

    Family as failure? The role of informal help-givers to disabled people in Sweden.2009In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 11, no 1, 35-49 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a survey mapping all unpaid help and care work in the county of Stockholm, this article focuses on the informal help and care carried out for long-term ill and/or disabled people aged 64 or younger. The findings indicate that these forms of support are common and that the informal help-givers work many hours every month. Yet the impact of this work is quite invisible in texts on disability policy and there is a void of research addressing this issue. This article argues that, in spite of welfare state arrangements and reforms, families play a crucial role in providing resources, notably help and care for disabled family members. Their invisibility is interpreted as an expression of the fact that the care concept has become politically incorrect. In the light of modern disability policies, with its ideals of autonomy and empowerment, help and care provided by families to adults aged 64 or younger stand out as a dilemma and a contradiction. Making help and care provided by families invisible can be interpreted as one way of solving this contradiction.

    A long life with a particular signature: life course and ageing for people with disabilities2012In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 0163-4372, Vol. 55, no 2, 95-111 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What does it mean to live a long life and grow old with disabilities? Or to be an aging parent and still be a caregiver to a disabled adult child? These are questions discussed in this article, the aim of which is to show how a life course perspective adds insight to the lived experience of disability and ageing of adults with disabilities. It is argued that the time concept is fundamental to the understanding of the lives of disabled people. Results are presented which challenge established knowledge regarding disability policies, autonomy, body, biographical disruption and prerequisites of active aging.

    “A home away from home”: The role of the Church of Sweden Abroad for Swedish migrants2013In: New Religiosity in Migration, 2013, 38-41 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to some studies, Sweden is one of the most secularized countries in the world. with low church attendance. For most Swedes, their contact with the church is limited to traditional rites. How are we then to understand that quite a few Swedes seem to act much like immigrant groups from less secularized nations, by turning to the ethnic church and to religious practices while moving – fully or part time – to foreign countries?

    The aim of the presentation is to discuss this question, based on results from a project in which the role of the Church of Sweden   Abroad has been explored. The Church of Sweden has a long traditions of creating parishes abroad, mainly in the larger European cities and in connection with harbors, as Seaman`s Churches. Since some decades, however, the Church has started to follow the streams of tourists and elderly migrants and parishes have been established, mainly in Southern Europe and, lately in Asian countries.

    The presentation will be based on a project consisting of three studies: 1) A qualitative case study, 2) A mapping of the web sites of all 45 parishes, and 3) An internet-based survey of all parishes. An interesting pattern turned out to be  that many church visitors who initially seemed to be attracted by the (Swedish) “home away from home”  that the parish offered through e.g. “Swedish coffee”, eventually began to participate regularly in the church services, even in Holy Communion.

    Som ett andra hem?: Svenska utlandskyrkan i en tid av globalisering och äldremigration2012 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad gör en utlandsförsamling och vilken är dess roll och betydelse i en tid av ökande globalisering? Det är frågor som diskuteras i denna rapport. Vi lever i värld med ökat resande och förändrade migrationsmönster. Det blir allt vanligare också att äldre människor, till exempel nordeuropeiska pensionärer, flyttar till varmare länder permanent eller tillfälligt. Människor blir alltmer gränslösa. Det innebär dock inte att deras behov av sammanhang, relationer och omsorg upphör. Det har varit en utgångspunkt för det projekt om utlandskyrkan på vars resultat den här rapporten bygger.

    De svenska utlandsförsamlingarna finns utspridda i olika delar av världen. De skiljer sig åt i storlek och till sin karaktär, liksom i viss utsträckning när det gäller typen av besökare. Ändå har de stora likheter och många gemensamma drag visar resultaten. Det svenska språket står i centrum, det är svenskarna som är målgrupperna, och för dem fungerar utlandskyrkan som en tillflyktsort och som en hemvist i ett främmande land. Bilden av församlingarnas religiösa roll framstår som intressant men mångtydig och ganska motsägelsefull.

    Förändringsperspektiv på äldreomsorg: att leva som andra2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Medborgarskap i ett välfärdssamhälle innebär att samhället träder in när medborgare av olika skäl inte förmår lika mycket som tidigare, eller i jämförelse med andra i samma ålder. Man har alltså en funktionsnedsättning och behöver stöd för att kunna leva som andra. Problemet är att människors funktionsnedsättning bedöms olika beroende på när i livet den har uppstått: före eller efter 65 års ålder, där möjligheterna till hjälp minskar efter 65.

    I denna bok har några av Sveriges främsta äldre- och funktionshinderforskare samlats för att undersöka skillnaderna i lagstiftning, forskning, politik och praktik vad gäller hjälp till människor i olika åldrar. Där formuleringarna kring funktionsnedsättning och -hinder stöttar människors rätt till lika levnadsvillkor, är det svårare för äldre att, utifrån lagstiftning och policydokument, hävda samma rätt.

    Genom att använda begrepp och företeelser från funktionshinderområdet, pekar författarna på skillnader i medborgerliga rättigheter som är kopplade till ålder. På så vis skapar de nya spännande perspektiv som kan leda förändringsarbetet mot en annorlunda äldreomsorg.

    Ideologibaserade livsloppskonstruktioner inom handikapp- och äldrepolitik2006In: Socionomens forskningssupplement, Vol. 19, 18-31 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utifrån föreställningar om hjälpbehov har människor med funktionsnedsättningar och människor med hög ålder i många sammanhang klumpats samman som medlemmar av samma kategori -äldre och handikappade-. Yngre funktionshindrade har därmed berövats ålder medan äldre människor mer eller mindre framställts som funktionsnedsatta. Under de senaste årtiondena har handikapp- och äldrepolitik alltmer kommit att separeras i den socialpolitiska diskussionen. Därmed har nya former av olikhet uppstått. I artikeln diskuteras de omfattande skillnader i konstruktionen av livslopp som förekommer i två statliga utredningar som fokuserat handikapp- respektive äldrepolitik. Dessa olikheter förstås som ideologiskt drivna försök att förbättra funktionshindrade och äldre personers välfärd och status genom association med attraktiva grupper och egenskaper.

    The exclusion of older people in disability activism and policies - A case of inadvertent ageism?2009In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 0890-4056, Vol. 23, no 1, 69-77 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using Sweden as a case, the article discusses the tendency within disability activism and policies to overlook elderly people. From an analysis of a major Swedish government investigation on disability it is clear that disability policies in Sweden have come to rest upon stereotyped age norms that divide the life course into set stages, and there has been a tendency to define elderly disabled people as elderly rather than disabled. It is argued that this exclusion is partly the result of a successful endeavor to provide disabled people of younger ages with rights that are typical of non-disabled citizens. justice and equality have been defined in comparison to citizens of similar ages: children, youth and adults of "active age". Based on the analysis of the paper it is argued that activities of movements struggling to liberate oppressed Populations may contribute to ageism, and that anti-ageist research must go beyond the idea that ageism is a simple matter of attitudes towards older people.

    To protect and to support: How citizenship and self-determination are legally constructed and managed in practice for people living with dementia in Sweden2016In: Dementia, ISSN 1471-3012, E-ISSN 1741-2684, Vol. 15, no 3, 343-357 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since living with dementia implies increasing difficulties in taking charge of rights due to cognitive as well as communicative impairments, many people with dementia are vulnerable and in need of support in order to realize full citizenship. In Sweden, all adults right to self-determination is strongly emphasized in law, regulations, and policies. Further, and in contrast to the situation in many other countries, people living with dementia cannot be declared as incompetent of making decisions concerning social care and their right to self-determination cannot legally be taken away. The article shows that in the Swedish welfare system, the focus is more on protecting the self-determination of citizens than on supporting people in making decisions and exercising citizenship. Subsequently, this causes legally constructed zones of inclusion and exclusion. This article examines and problematizes how different institutional contexts, legal constructions, norms, and practices in Sweden affect the management of issues concerning guardianship, supported decision-making and self-determination, and outline the implications for people living with dementia.

    Voice: An Analytical Framework for Exploring Citizenship in Dementia Research2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We will present voice as an analytical framework to enhance the problematization and investigation of citizenship for people living with dementia. We will also discuss the strengths and the potential of using such a framework when doing research on citizenship in general, and more specifically, for people living with dementia. The analytical framework that we will propose focuses on the multiple accounts of voice in use. Thus, the framework does not only embrace the issue of "whose voices?", but also the various ways voice has been conceptualised, framed and understood in different theoretical and empirical contexts as well as how these together in different ways have the potential to shed light on the possibility for people with dementia to remain participative actors in their neighbourhood, in society and furthermore, to have the opportunity to claim full citizenship.

    Ageism in Health Care: A Systematic Review of OperationalDefinitions and Inductive Conceptualizations2017In: The Gerontologist, ISSN 0016-9013, E-ISSN 1758-5341, 1-11 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose:

    International and national bodies have identified tackling ageism in health care as an urgent goal. However, health

    professionals, researchers, and policy makers recognize that it is not easy to identity and fight ageism in practice, as the identification

    of multiple manifestations of ageism is dependent on the way it is defined and operationalized. This article reports

    on a systematic review of the operational definitions and inductive conceptualizations of ageism in the context of health care.

    Design and Methods:

    We reviewed scientific articles published from January 1995 to June 2015 and indexed in the electronic

    databases Web of Science, PubMed, and Cochrane. Electronic searches were complemented with visual scanning of

    reference lists and hand searching of leading journals in the field of ageing and social gerontology.

    Results:

    The review reveals that the predominant forms of operationalization and inductive conceptualization of ageism in

    the context of health care have neglected some components of ageism, namely the self-directed and implicit components.

    Furthermore, the instruments used to measure ageism in health care have as targets older people in general, not older

    patients in particular.

    Implications:

    The results have important implications for the advancement of research on this topic, as well as for the

    development of interventions to fight ageism in practice. There is a need to take into account underexplored forms of

    operationalization and inductive conceptualizations of ageism, such as self-directed ageism and implicit ageism. In addition,

    ageism in health care should be measured by using context-specific instruments.

    Att åldras med funktionshinder: Betydelser av socialt och kronologiskt åldrande för människor som under lång tid levt med fysiska funktionsnedsättningar2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The significance of age and ageing for people who have experienced a physical impairment under a long period of time is an area that has received little attention in both policies related to disability and the elderly as well as in social scientific research on disability and social gerontology. At the same time, age limits related to public support for disabled people, as well as related theories and empirical studies indicate that age and ageing can have specific meanings for people living with impairments. The aim of this thesis is to interpret the significance of age norms and subjective age for people in today’s Sweden who are approximately 65 years old with physical impairments that have existed for at least 30 years. Age norms refer to commonly accepted interpretations of what is associated with a certain age or phase of life, while subjective age refers to ”how old one feels”. The years around 65 have been chosen because they stand out as a time in life when age, ageing and age norms are expected to take on a particularly palpable meaning.

    An interview-study of 20 persons between 56-72 years of age was conducted. A life course perspective was used, both as a theoretical departure and as a methodological tool.

    Among other things, the interpretation of the interviews reveals how people can acquire and apply age norms that are often described as negative in other contexts in a way that results in something positive for the individual. In contrast to existing theories that emphasize the centrality of good health to be able to ”feel young”, the study at hand also indicates that those with a medically-defined chronic illness or physical impairment may experience age in a number of ways, without this necessarily involving their diagnosis or impairment. Furthermore, the interview subjects’ descriptions of their daily lives suggest that it is not unreasonable to surmise that a pensioner with impairments in today’s Swedish society can achieve a modern and leisurely ”third age” pensioner ideal. But age and ageing do not emerge as important to all aspects of life. This is particularly the case with respect to experiences of various changes in one’s own physical condition.

    Abstract [sv]

         Vi har hittills haft begränsad kunskap om funktionshindrade människors liv över tid och om innebörden i att leva med funktionshinder under många år. Vad innebär det att åldras med funktionshinder? Hur gestaltar sig "äldreblivandet" om man redan har betydande funktionsnedsättningar sedan tidigare i livet och kanske tvingats lämna arbetslivet långt före gängse pensionsålder? Hur är det att, som en till åren kommen förälder, fortfarande vara den som hjälper sitt vuxna, funtionshindrade barn? Hur ser den formella och informella omsorgssituationen ut? Det är frågor som den här boken belyser och den fyller därmed ett viktigt kunskapsbehov. Boken utgår från ett livsloppsperspektiv. Den centrala frågan är sålunda hur livet idag gestaltar sig för funktionshindrade människor som vuxit upp och levt under vissa historiska villkor. Här ryms även ett anhörigperspektiv där denna fråga studeras på motsvarande sätt. Bokens sex kapitel diskuterar de här frågorna med olika tonvikt och med utgångspunkt från både fysiskt och psykiskt funktionshindrades förhållanden. Samtliga författare bedriver forskning med anknytning till bokens huvudfråga. Att åldras med funktionshinder riktar sig främst till högskolestuderande inom samhälls- och beteendevetenskap, socialt arbete, social omsorg och vård, liksom till yrkesverksamma inom fältet. Den kan också vara värdefull för en intresserad allmänhet.

    Informell omsorg som problem: anhörigskap, funktionshinder och vuxenhet2012In: Åldrande och omsorgens gestaltningar: Mot nya perspektiv / [ed] Eva Jeppsson Grassman, Anna Whitaker, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2012, 1, 57-76 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I vår tids diskussion om välfärd är omsorgsbegreppet centralt. Men vad är omsorg och på vilket sätt kommer den till uttryck i sammanhang som gäller äldre och åldrande? Det är några av de frågeställningar som diskuteras i den här antologin.I äldre­omsorgsforskning har man hittills som regel tagit offentlig äldreomsorg som en självklar utgångspunkt.

    Här vidgas istället perspektivet och flera andra av omsorgsbegreppets olika dimensioner, gestaltningar och sammanhang inkluderas och diskuteras - sådana som har betydelse i vår tid men som ofta har förbisetts i forskningen. Det innebär också att antologin fokuserar på åldrande och omsorg i vid bemärkelse och inte bara på kommunal äldreomsorg. Med utgångspunkt i begrepp som tid, plats och aktörer och samspelet mellan dessa lyfter vi fram flera olika sammanhang för omsorg: Det är fråga om civilsamhället som plats och utförare av omsorg, liksom omsorg som berör migration och etniska relationer. Vi diskuterar också den fysiska miljön, boendet och platsens betydelse för omsorgens utformning och innebörder.

    Slutligen belyser vi livets sista tid och omsorgens olika existentiella dimensioner under detta skede.Åldrande och omsorgens gestaltningar - mot nya perspektiv riktar sig främst till högskolestuderande inom samhälls- och beteende­vetenskap, socialt arbete, social omsorg och vård, liksom till yrkesverksamma inom fältet. Den kan också vara värdefull för en intresserad allmänhet.

    Is it possible to "age successfully" with extensive physical impairments?2013In: Ageing with Disability: A lifecourse perspective / [ed] Eva Jeppsson Grassman & Anna Whitaker, Bristol: Policy Press, 2013, 55-71 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The first book to address the issue of aging with a long-term disability, "Ageing with Disability" breaks new ground through its particular lifecourse perspective, examining what it means to age with a physical or mental disability and what the implications are of "becoming old" for people who have had extensive disabilities for many years. It highlights the meaning of care in unexplored contexts, such as aging parents acting as caregivers or mutual care by disabled couples, areas of disability studies that have, until now, been totally neglected

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande kapitel är att bidra till förståelsen för funktionsned-sättningars och sjukdomars betydelse för upplevd ålder genom att rikta uppmärksamheten mot hur människor som själva lever med funktionsned-sättningar och sjukdomar uppfattar och skapar mening i sin upplevda ålder. Kapitlet är en förkortad version av ett avhandlingskapitel som baseras på intervjuer med sammanlagt 20 personer i åldrarna 56–72 år. De intervjuades förutsättningar för att ‖känna sig unga‖ eller ‖inte gamla‖ framstår i ljuset av diskussionen ovan som relativt begränsade: Samtliga har (enligt egen definition) levt med fysiska funktionshinder under minst 30 år, många un-der betydligt längre tid. Då intervjuerna genomfördes använde alla utom en, mer eller mindre kontinuerligt, någon form av hjälpmedel vid förflyttningar. Fem använde käpp eller rollator. Fjorton av dem använde rullstol. Elva personer hade personlig assistans enligt Lag om stöd och service till vissa funktionshindrade (LSS), vilket innebär att de bedömts ha stora och varak-tiga funktionshinder och ett omfattande behov av stöd och service (SFS 1993:387).

    On the Possibilities of "Ageing Successfully" with Extensive Physical Impairments2011In: Journal of Human Development, Disability, and Social Change, Vol. 19, no 2, 127-140 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on qualitative interviews with Swedish women and men between the ages 65-72 who have been living with physical impairments for a long period of time, this article considers the opportunities and challenges of adopting a leisurely active and self-fulfilling lifestyle in later life if one uses a wheelchair and/or is relatively dependent upon other people’s support. The participants’ accounts point to the importance of considering how social and environmental contexts may influence the meanings and consequences of chronic illnesses and impairments for people of all ages. General developments in welfare, technical improvements, as well as a long line of reforms that include legislation on the adaptation of homes and the Act concerning Support and Service for Persons with Certain Functional Impairments (Lag om stöd och service till vissa funktionshindrade, LSS) are commented upon as changes that have contributed to the leisurely active  lifestyle of the interviewees  Because it focuses on today’s “young old disabled people” – women and men who have grown up and are growing old during an era of technological advances and developments in the area of disability policies – the article gives voice to a group of people who have been largely overlooked in gerontology and in the literature on the modern, active, “successfully ageing” senior citizen. In research on disability and in disability policy there are, similarly, few references to disabled seniors.

    On the possibilties of "feeling young" as a senior with extensive physical impairments2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a qualitative interview study with Swedish women and men between the ages 56-72 who have been living with chronic illnesses and extensive physical impairments for a long period, the object of this presentation is to contribute to the discussion about the relationship between health and function and the possibilities of ”feeling young” or “not old”. The presentation is primarily based on the interview subjects’ responses to the question: “Do you experience yourself as being younger or older than your chronological age” and to the conversation on “feel age” that followed thereafter. The interviewees’ way of describing their subjective age illustrates that an interpretation of one’s self as relatively young or “not old” may draw on a variety of images of aging. Indeed, in contrast to writings of scholars in the ageing field that emphasize the centrality of good health to be able to “feel young”, the study at hand indicates that those with a medically-defined chronic illness or physical impairment may experience age in a number of ways, without this necessarily involving their diagnosis or impairment.

    Abstract [no]

                     Livsløp med funksjonshemming presenterer helt ny, praktisk kunnskap om livsløp og aldring blant mennesker med funksjonshemming. Forfatterne beskriver funksjonshemmedes erfaringer og opplevelser og drøfter utfordringene funksjonshemmede selv, nærmiljøet, samfunnet og hjelpere møter.Noen viktige problemstillinger som boka tar opp er:* Hva er «typisk» på eldre dager - stiller alle eldre på lik linje?* Hvilke påkjenninger medfører «normalisering»?* Hvordan utfordres kjønnsidentiteten av funksjonsnedsettelser?* Hva innebærer det å være foreldre til en funksjonshemmet person gjennom et helt livsløp?* Hvilke utfordringer møter støtte- og hjelpeapparatet?* Hvor viktig er og hvordan formes og utvikles en handikappolitisk identitet?Funksjonshemmede mennesker lever lenger enn før og aldringsprosessen til mennesker med funksjonsnedsettelser stiller både samfunnet og tiltaks- og hjelpeapparatet overfor nye utfordringer. De to forskningsfeltene om «funksjonshemmede» og «eldre» har vært konsentrert om hver sin befolkningsgruppe. Denne boka forener de to feltene og omhandler spørsmål som tidligere knapt er belyst i forskning. Boka gir et kunnskapsgrunnlag for forståelse og samhandling mellom ulike faggrupper i tverrfaglig samarbeid.Livsløp med funksjonshemming er skrevet for helse- og sosialarbeidere og for studenter innen vernepleie, sykepleie, ergo- og fysioterapi, sosialt arbeid, medisin samt i de tverrfaglige videreutdanningene.

    The meaning of bodily changes for people living and ageing with early onset impairments: A life course perspective2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Thelargely unexplored question that this presentation deals with is howindividuals experience bodily changes and loss of functional capacity thatoccur over the life course, years after the initial onset of a chronic illness,injury or congenital impairment. The presentation is based on the analysis andcomparisons of results from two qualitative studies, one prospective and theother retrospective, which, from a life course perspective, explored theexperience of people living and ageing with various chronic illnesses andphysical impairments. The point of departure for this comparative analyticalphase was a recurring theme that had emerged in the interviews in both studies.The theme has to do with the upsetting, frightening or painful complicationsand bodily and functional losses that were experienced as part of a process ofcontinued illness or physical deterioration over the life course. The aim ofthe presentation is to examine and discuss this experience and the meaning ofthese bodily and functional losses for the participants. This will be donerelative to the medical sociologist Mike Bury’s conceptualization of theexperience of an, unexpected, onset of a chronic illness as constituting amajor critical and disruptive experience – a “biographical disruption”. In thepresentation I will argue that “biographical disruptions” may occur repeatedlyover the life span in chronically ill and disabled people and that bodilychange do not have to be wholly unexpected to be experienced as “critical” anddisruptive.

    How are decisions on care services for people with dementia made and experienced? : A qualitative synthesis of recent empirical findings2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During recent decades, there has been a growing recognition that people cannot be assumed incapable of making decisions about their own care solely on the basis of a dementia diagnosis and international agreements and legislative changes have strengthened the formal right for people with dementia to participate in decisions on care services. This raises important questions about how these decisions are currently made and experienced in practice. The aim of this presentation is to address this question and highlight directions for further research.

    The presentation is based on a systematic review and qualitative synthesis of recent empirical findings. For inclusion in the review, a publication had to meet the criteria of being published between 2005 and 2013 in a peer-reviewed journal, and be written in English. Twenty-four articles were identified, all representing qualitative studies. Relevant findings were extracted and synthesized along dimensions of involvement of the person with dementia in decisions on care services. Three overarching ways in which people with dementia are involved, primarily, in the informal part of a process of decisions were identified: excluded, prior preferences taken into account, current preferences respected. Several articles seemed to be based on the assumption that decisions on care services are invariably and solely made within the family and without participation of the person with dementia.

    Our study emphasizes the need for more updated research about international debates and agreements concerning capabilities and rights of people with dementia and about the (potential) formal contexts of care decisions in the country concerned.
