    Housing plans of the oldest old – Ageing in semi-rural areas2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Many municipalities in rural areas have decreasing population rates. Generally the young move out, increasing the share of older people and influencing the way life is led in rural areas. In this paper focus is on the housing situation and housing plans of the oldest individuals in three small, semi-rural municipalities in southern Sweden. In order to increase our understanding of the living conditions of an ageing rural population, a postal survey was conducted. In one part of the survey the respondents answered questions about their current housing situation and their housing plans for the future. The research questions analysed for this study regarded stated reasons for housing decisions and plans. 1386 surveys were sent out, i.e., to all inhabitants aged 80 years and older residing in the ordinary housing market, in the three municipalities, 817 surveys were returned providing a response rate at 60%. The aim was to determine the main reasons for remaining put in a current housing situation or reasons for why relocation could be a future option. Results show that place attachment is strong, 90% of the respondents have lived in the municipality for more than 20 years and 60% have lived in the current dwelling for more than 20 years. Ageing in place is the dominating plan although 23% answered that they do not know what will happen in future. Those that plan to move, want to move to housing that needs less maintenance than the current dwelling and to a more central location.

    Omsorgens skugga - äldres strategier i boendet2012In: Åldrande och omsorgens gestaltningar: mot nya perspektiv / [ed] Eva Jeppsson Grassman, Anna Whitaker, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2012, 1, p. 125-146Chapter 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.

    What about community sustainability? - dilemmas of ageing in shrinking semi-rural areas in Sweden2018In: Scottish Geographical Journal, ISSN 1470-2541, E-ISSN 1751-665X, Vol. 134, no 3-4, p. 103-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many municipalities in Sweden have decreasing population rates combined with an increasing proportion of older people. Such a demographic shift will influence the way life is led as the foundation for service provision and social activities becomes undermined. This leads us to question the extent to which shrinking municipalities can be considered socially sustainable. The aim of the paper was to investigate older peoples participation in the local community and to study the perceived changes in the local community as reported by older people and how these are experienced. A postal survey was sent out to all inhabitants aged 80 years and older living in their own household in three small, semi-rural municipalities in southern Sweden, in total 1386. The response rate was 60%. Thus, focus was on the experiences of the oldest individuals. The research questions analysed for this study concerned the ageing populations social networks, community involvement, car dependence and service provision. The results are used to discuss the social sustainability of the societies in which these people have lived for a long time.

    Rum för åldrande. Essäer om äldres boende: Essäer skrivna i forskarutbildningskursen Äldres boende, NISAL 20092010Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Höstterminen 2009 genomförde vi en forskarutbildningskurs om äldres boende. Kursens huvudsyfte var att kritiskt behandla den mycket varierande forskning om hem, boende, grannskap och åldrandets villkor som pågår. Kursens nav var diskutera och pröva teorier och metoder som innebär att sociala och kulturella förhållande studeras i relation till den fysiska miljöns utformning.

    Uppgiften att studera äldres boende och boendet under åldrandet är närmast outtömlig. Så mycket av livet utspelas och avgörs av var och hur man bor. Bostaden är ett rum för livet som för de flesta ökar i betydelse när man blir gammal. Man tillbringar mer tid i bostaden. Bostadens utformning kan underlätta eller försvåra vardagslivet. Att bli gammal betyder också att förändra sitt förhållningssätt till hemmet och det grannskap där hemmet finns.

    Det säger sig självt att det finns mycket stora variationer mellan olika äldre människors boende – beroende på ålder, livslopp och boendekarriär, sociala förhållanden, ekonomiska resurser, intressen och behov av vardaglig hjälp och stöd. Variationen är lika stor bland de äldre som i andra åldersgrupper, kanske till och med större eftersom det utöver de vanliga bostadsformerna också finns alternativ som är särskilt avsedda för äldre - seniorlägenheter, livsstilsboenden, trygghetsboenden och särskilda boenden.

    Sedan ett femtontal år har det vuxit fram en bostadsmarknad som speciellt vänder sig till äldre eller personer som vill utforma sitt boende så att de passar det liv de vill leva. Man kan se detta som ett sätt för bostadsmarknadens aktörer att möta att antalet äldre blir fler och att detta förhållande kommer att påverka deras verksamhet i en rad avseenden. Forskning om hur de nya boendena utvecklas över tid är betydelsefull. Kommer boende i seniorhus att göra åldrandet mer meningsfullt och bidra till att de som bor där kan utveckla det civila samhället? Eller kommer seniorhusen att förstärka klyftorna mellan olika äldre och avskilja vissa från det omgivande samhället?

    Kursen hade tre teman: Stadsdelen och orten som rum för det lokala livet, det särskilda boendet som rum för hemliv, vård och omsorg samt generation, boende och flyttmönster. Undervisningen och arbetet i kursen byggdes upp av flera delar. En del bestod av föreläsningar och seminarier som syftade till att ge en översikt av den teoretiska litteraturen som behandlar rumsliga fenomen. En del av kursen behandlade hur boendet för äldre har utvecklats och kan komma att utvecklas i förhållande till bostads- och äldrepolitik. En tredje del syftade till att knyta det teoretiska innehållet till praktiken. Tre fältbesök genomfördes i olika bostadsmiljöer för äldre: ett hyreshusområde i Norrköping, ett nytt seniorbonde och ett nyöppnat särskilt boende. En del av kursens bestod av deltagarnas egna arbeten. Kanske var denna del den viktigaste. Var och en skrev en essä om en fråga som engagerade särskilt. I de flesta fall handlade det om att knyta sitt eget pågående avhandlingsarbete eller sin yrkespraktik till en specifik frågeställning inom kursens ram.

    Essäerna kom att handla om en rad olika aspekter av äldres boende. Några tog upp analytiska och teorigenererade frågor som kunde kopplas till bl.a. fältbesöken, några utnyttjade empiri som man samlat i andra sammanhang, några diskuterade äldres boende och omsorg i specifika geografiska eller sociala kontexter. Essäerna behandlar frågor av stor relevans, i flera fall på ett oväntat och idérikt sätt. Därför har vi samlat några av kursens essäer i denna kursantologi.

    Lärare på kursen var Marianne Abramsson, Jan-Erik Hagberg, Mirjaliisa Lukkarinen Kvist och Catharina Nord, alla från NISAL samt Chris Phillipson från Keele University.

    Images of Technology and Sustainable Development in Swedish Children’s Literature2014In: Australasian Journal of Technology Education, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 1-9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to investigate images of technology and how technology is linked to sustainable development in Swedish children’s literature. Our perspective is that such images represent values that are conveyed to the young generation. We have chosen to study books by four Swedish authors, Elsa Beskow, Inger Sandberg, Jan Lööf and Sven Nordqvist, all of them still read by many children, parents and teachers, both in and out of school. In the examined books, technology is portrayed in several modes: as a servant to man, as a deterministic force, as a loyal and equal companion to man, and as a natural phenomenon in a nostalgic world. Technologies that have a leading role in the stories examined are placed in different kind of contexts, more or less social, more or less utopian or idyllic. In all four authors’ writings there is an optimistic faith in children’s ability.

    Technology for a Sustainable Life. Images in Swedish Children’s Literature2013In: PATT 27 Technology Education for the Future: A Playon Sustainability / [ed] P. John Williams & Dilani Gedera, Hamilton, New Zealand, 2013, p. 27-24Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the United Nations report Our common future sustainable development is defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. Technology is seen as a kind of enabling force in that endeavour; new technologies are to be the solution to conflicts between growing economic activities and reductions in the use of natural resources. Sustainable development can, however, also be expressed as a set of traditional values that, in a country like Sweden, have been a part of everyday life for many generations. Education for sustainable development has been a goal in the Swedish national curriculum since 1994, not the least in the subject Technology. The teaching can evidently be inspired by both the international discussion on the future world and by the long tradition of how to live locally.

     

    The aim of this paper is to investigate images of technology and how technology is linked to sustainable development in children’s literature. Our perspective is that such images represent values that are conveyed to the young generation. We have chosen to study books by four Swedish authors, Elsa Beskow, Inger Sandberg, Jan Lööf and Sven Nordqvist, all of them still read by many children, parents and teachers alike, both in and out of school. Technology is in the examined books portrayed in several modes: as a servant to man, as a deterministic force, as a loyal and “equal” companion to man and as a natural phenomenon in a nostalgic world. Technologies that have a leading role in the examined stories are placed in different kind of contexts, more or less social, more or less utopian or idyllic. In all four author’s writings there is an optimistic faith in children’s ability to choose the right path. Children are the ones who must take responsibility for the future and overcome the problems the current adult generation have created. From a gender perspective, the message in the majority of the stories is clear: men are the source of technological development.

    “I want complete freedom”: car use and everyday mobility among the newly retired2015In: European Transport Research Review, ISSN 1867-0717, E-ISSN 1866-8887, Vol. 7, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    To investigate car use among newly retired people, to explore to what extent car transport is used for everyday mobility and how it is valued in comparison to other transport modes.

    Methods

    The data consists of travel diaries and qualitative interviews with 24 individuals, aged between 61 and 67, living in a middle-sized Swedish city. They were recruited via the local branch of one of the main associations of pensioners, one large employer in the municipality, and through another study. The informants filled in a travel diary during 1 week that were analysed by VISUAL- TimePAcTS, an application for visualising and exploring activity diary data. The semi-structured qualitative interviews were analysed using a qualitative content analysis.

    Results

    The car was used for several trips daily and often for short trips. The informants had a lot of everyday projects that they would not be able to perform if they did not have access to a car. The importance of the car does not seem to have changed upon retirement, albeit it is partly used for other reasons than before. The informant’s social context implies new space-time constraints. Commitments to family members, engagement in associations and spouses’ occupations affect how much and when they use the car, and their overall mobility.

    Conclusions

    In contrast to much research on older people’s mobility that has studied slightly older people, this study have focused on a specific group that are relatively healthy, well-off, and have the possibility to choose between different modes of transport. By combining travel diaries and qualitative interviews, we have explored how newly retired people reason as regard their travel behaviour but also how they actually travel. Although the car was used more than other transport modes, being able to walk and cycle now that they had more time as retirees was highly valued. Our results indicate that urban residents that are retiring now and in the future are a key target group in transport planning when it comes to reduce car use in favour of slow modes of transport.

    Mobility in the transition to retirement - the intertwining of transportation and everyday projects2014In: Journal of Transport Geography, ISSN 0966-6923, E-ISSN 1873-1236, Vol. 38, p. 48-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through travel diaries and interviews with newly retired urban residents in Sweden our aim was to explore (1) mobility patterns in the transition to retirement, (2) the influence of space-time restrictions and resources on mobility and (3) the meaning and embodied experience of mobility. This time-geographic study contributes with knowledge on how mobility is influenced by individual, social and geographical contexts. Illustrated by four cases, our result show that retirement changes the preconditions for mobility and creates new space-time restrictions. To spend more time on projects that were previously carried out outside working time, such as caring for grandchildren, volunteer work and household responsibilities, influenced the informants demands for mobility and choice of transport mode. However, the informants have resources that can be seen as strategies to overcome space-time restrictions. Most of the informants found it important to structure the day, to some it was vital to have something to do during the day while others enjoyed the possibility to take each day as it comes. Everyday mobility was a way of forming a structure by getting out of the house, either just for a walk or for making errands. The informants embodied experiences of mobility influenced their choice to walk and cycle for transport for the reasons of comfort, get fresh air, or simply to get out of the house. The daily mobility pattern that was established was a result of individual preferences and resources as well as negotiations with family members. We conclude that the transition to retirement is a period when new mobility patterns are considered, evaluated and practiced.

    Time to spare: Everyday activities among newly retired people in a middle-sizedcity2016Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Retirement has recently been studied as a complex process that affects people’s lives in many different ways (Teuscher 2010; Grenier 2011; Halleröd, Örestig and Stattin 2013). Retirement implies changes in time-space use, interruption in routines and changed social patterns. Leisure activities, shopping, errands and rest are no longer determined by the working life rhythm. New time-space constraints might at the same time occur that limit the individual’s actions, such as reduced income, new or increased commitments towards children and grandchildren, involvement in associations or part-time work (Kleiber and Nimrod, 2009; Szinovacz et al., 2001; Van den Bogaard et al., 2013).

    A vast amount of research from different fields has focused on the implications of retirement for wellbeing (Bender 2012; Wang 2007), adjustment (Van Solinge and Henkens 2008), identity (Teucher 2010), volunteering (Van den Bogaard et.al., 2013) and physical activity (Lahti et al. 2011). So far, only a few studies have investigated everyday activities and timespace use among older people in general and the post-World War II generation in particular (Chatzitheochari and Arber 2011; Gauthier and Smeeding 2003). In many studies of  time-space use, the aim has been to illuminate the juggling of everyday activities that occurs and to deal with the balance between work, leisure and family (Schwanen and de Jong 2008; Kwan 2000; Scholten, Friberg and Sanden 2012). Naturally, retired people have not been included in those studies, although many older people play an important role in the lives of families with small children (Schwanen 2008) and seek supporting and leading roles as citizens (cf. Gagliardi, et al. 2007; Leinonen 2011; Liechty, Yarnal and Kerstetter 2012; McCormack et al. 2008; Nimrod and Adoni 2006; Sperazza and Banerjee 2010). Little is known about the expectations this generation has on retirement and its demands for activities. The aim of this study is therefore to explore newly retired peoples everyday activities. What activities do they take part in and where are these activities carried out? In what respect, and for what reasons, do activities change or stay the same upon retirement?

    The remaining of this paper begins with a discussion of the implications of retirement on everyday activities in accordance to previous research. The time-geographical perspective and concepts used here for studying activities is then presented. That is followed by a description of methods, data and analysis, before the empirical analysis of travel diaries and qualitative interviews is given. The paper ends with a discussion of the results in relation to previous research.

    Att vara gammal och leva på landsbygden: äldres uppfattningar om vardagen och åldrandet2015 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppfattningarna om vad det innebär att vara gammal och bo och leva på landsbygden varierar. Somliga ser bygder med gemenskap och starka nätverk - miljöer där äldre kan åldras väl. Andra ser bygder som avfolkas och blir allt glesare, orter som försvinner, samhällen som åldras - miljöer där äldre får växande svårigheter i sin vardag.

    Forskningen har få svar på frågor om vad landsbygdens förändringar innebär för äldres och gamlas livsvillkor.

    I boken redovisas en undersökning av hur de äldre själva upplever sin vardag. Den är gjord i Valdemarsvik, Ydre och Åtvidaberg, tre mindre kommuner i södra Östergötland. Undersökningen har resulterat i ett omfattande och delvis unikt material 718 personer har besvarat frågor om bl.a. boende, service, bilkörning, umgänge med grannar och vänner, familjeförhållanden, hjälp och stöd som man får eller ger till andra och hur man ser på att vara gammal och leva på landsbygden eller i en mindre ort. Många har förutom att svara på frågorna lämnat kommentarer och synpunkter. Dessa handlar om allt från aktiviteter man ägnar sig åt till hälsans avgörande betydelse, ensamheten, platstillhörigheten och närheten till naturen.

    Livet genom tekniklandskapet. Livslopp, åldrande och vardagsteknikens förändring2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tretton norrköpingsbor berättar om sina liv sedda i förhållande till hur boendet och vardagstekniken har förändrats från 1920 och 1930 talen, då de var unga, till nu, i början av 2000-talet, då de är pensionärer och på väg att bli gamla. När informanterna växte upp dominerade textilindustrin i Norrköping och arbetarnas bostäder var små och dåligt utrustade. När de bildade familj, på 1940 och 1950 talen, omskapades staden. Hyresbostäder, HSB och Riksbyggen uppförde nya stadsdelar, med moderna funktionalistiska lägenheter. Dit flyttade man. Deltagarna tillhör den generation som har upplevt de största förändringarna av vardagens tekniklandskap. Kedjan av nya, idag självklara, redskap, apparater, maskiner och tekniska system som har infogats i vardagens rutiner är lång: den elektriska spisen, radion, tvättmaskinen, kylskåpet, telefonen, teven, frysen, personbilen, videon, datorn, mobiltelefonen och Internet. Bokens huvudhistoria är hur åldrandet är relaterat till innehållet i den fysiska miljön. Vilken betydelse har teknik när man är gammal? Hur följer äldre med i teknikutvecklingen? I vilken mån kan ny teknik lösa vardagens problem? Vilken betydelse har den välkända och välanvända tekniken för livssyn och identitet? Är den nya vardagstekniken åldersdiskriminerande?

    Stadsdelen Ljura som rum för åldrande: sega strukturer och tidens gång2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ljura i Norrköping är en tidstypisk 1950-talsstadsdel. Hyresbostäder byggde den nya tidens stad och lägenheter, en dröm för dåtidens barnfamiljer. Många liknande stadsdelar finns i andra svenska mellanstora och stora städer. Men Ljura är unikt, bl.a. genom att Ljura under sin tidiga historia så tydligt representerar övergången från Fattigsveriges eländiga stadskvarter till Folkhemmets närförorter. Under stadsdelens fortsatta utveckling återspeglar Ljura Välfärdssamhällets dynamik, dess löften, men också dess problem. Det är denna sammansatta verklighet då och nu som undersöks - Fallet det stabila men skiftande Ljura.

    Den centrala frågan är hur boendet har formats av stadsdelens fysiska utformning, dess läge i staden och sociala dynamik. Äldre och gamla människor är i centrum för diskussionen. Det handlar om de olika generationer av äldre som har levt i Ljuras hus och kvarter under lång tid.

    Tekniken i kvinnornas händer: Hushållsarbete och hushållsteknik under tjugo- och trettiotalen1986Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The general aim of the study is to analyse the impacts of the rapid industrialization and emerging new household technology during the first half of this century on domestic work and womens role. The focus is on the opinions among leading women about the consequences for housewifes and housework and on their efforts to influence technological development and to spread a message of modemization.

    In chapter I a model of how industrialization and technology affected the transition of housework is presented. Chapter II contents an overview of research in kindered fields. In chapter III a survey of the technological development of the household between 1860 and 1960 is given. This is followed by a discussion on the rate of expansion of electric power and of water mains. This part deals primarily with the markel introduction of new appliances and the dispersion of these to different social groups.

    Chapter IV discusses the growth of the movement for household modernization which occurred just prior to 1920. Chapter V analyzes the content of opinions put forth about housework, household technology, home life and the duties of women as expressed in two of the most popular woman's magazines of the day: Idun and Husmodern. Chapter VI recounts the debate carried on during the 1930s and is introduced with a description of the StockholmExhibition and functionalism's influence on the model homes displayed here. Chapter VII reviews the discussion about collective living versus traditional work in the home. Chapter VIII examines the contemporary views on woman's work outside the home. Chapter IX deals with the debate on the technological lag in the countryside and particularly the hard lot of the farmwives. Chapter X describes the rise of a new argument for rationalization of housework; housewives would aquire leisure time. Chapter XI discusses how women regard men in the light of the increasingly technical nature of work. An exursus deals with a pungent but significant male opinion: the comic portrayal by the popular press of the married man's trials and tribulations. Chapter XII summerizes the debate and propaganda about housework. The influence of the household taylorists is discussed.

    Chapter XIII places the household debate in a wider political pcrspective.While the debate of the 1920s was apolitical in the sense that there was no attempt to find a political solution to the housewives' problem, the social debate of the 1930s focused on the home and women's situation. Chapter XIV deals with the question of the efficacy of the propaganda to the household. The influence of household technology on the housewife's use of her time is also dealt with. The contradietians bctween the will to change and the will to preserve, between modernization and the safeguarding of a traditional heritage are also taken up. The period after the Second World War period is dealt with in an epilogue.

    The dissertation identifies three fundamental attitudes that have influenced the debate about housework during our century: a techno-optimistic, a technopolitically progressive and a techno-critical attitude.

    The Shaping of School Technology - Research on Technology Education from a Swedish Perspective2005In: Technology education in New Perspectives: research, assessment and curriculum development : festschrift for Witold Rogala / [ed] Lars Björklund, Eva Blomdahl, Jan Åke Granath, Stockholm: Stockholm Institute of Education Press , 2005, Vol. 14, p. 179-209Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Assessment and curriculum development are two major foci in recent research and policy studies in technology education. They were approached, in new perspectives, during two conferences in 2003, one taking place at the Stockholm Institute of Education, the other at the National M. Dragomanov Pedagogical University Kiev, Ukraine. To these conferences some of the major scholars in Europe in the field of design and technology education were invited. The most important papers have been revised for inclusion in this book, which is intended for a larger audience of students, teachers and administrators in technology education. The book includes a chapter by Richard Kimbell on a research project trying to develop a new assessment procedure for secondary schools, which is no longer rewarding the hard-working rule-followers at the expense of the risk-taking design innovators. Gabriele Graube and Walter Theuerkauf examine main traditions in technology education and discuss a model for assessing competence. Jan Åke Granath elaborates a design-theoretical approach to architecture education and presents an exercise, which makes students aware of the dynamics and uncertainty of problems in real life. Jan-Erik Hagberg presents a review of domestic and international research on technology education, initiated by the Swedish Research Council.

    Abstract [sv]

    Hur kan samhället ta tillvara den kraft          som finns i den till stora delar nya historiska situation som det växande          antalet äldre skapar, ”den tredje kraften”? De äldre          sammankopplas vanligtvis med problem. Därigenom döljs att de          som individer som regel är en stor tillgång för familj,          grannskap och samhället i vidare mening. De individuella variationerna          döljs liksom individernas skilda behov och intressen. Här finns          en rad intressanta frågor som är kopplade till samhällsplanering.          Var bor äldre och hur vill de bo? Hur använder äldre sin          tid? Känner de trygghet i sin omgivning? Är ny teknik ett hjälpmedel          eller ett hinder för äldre? Är äldre allt friskare          och mer aktiva? Detta är frågor som innehåller många          aspekter och berör nästan alla samhällssektorer.

    Dessa frågor låg till grund för diskussionerna          vid Vadstena Forums Symposium 2005. Djupare sett syftade symposiet till          att belysa hur det växande antalet äldre påverkar välfärdsutveckling          och samhällsplanering.

    Vid Vadstena forum medverkade femton forskare från          skilda discipliner och institutioner. Deras uppsatser låg till grund          för diskussionerna. Efter symposiet har forskarna haft tillfälle          att utnyttja diskussionerna vid symposiet och vidareutveckla sina uppsatser.          De uppsatser som presenteras i denna bok utgör därigenom också          en dokumentation av symposiet.

    Bidrag till finansiering av forskarinsatserna under          Symposium 2005 har lämnats av Linköpings universitet, Forskningsrådet          för arbetsliv och socialvetenskap (Fas), Forskningsrådet för          miljö, areella näringar och samhällsbyggande (Formas) och      Riksbankens jubileumsfond.

    Äldres boende : forskningsperspektiv i Norden2012 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi diskuteras äldres boendeförhållanden utifrån ett samhälls- och individperspektiv. Äldres boende inkluderar såväl kvarboende i vanliga bostäder som boende i bostäder särskilt avsedda för äldre. I boken behandlas fysiska och sociala aspekter på boendet, äldres bostadsmarknad och boendepreferenser. De olika kapitlen exemplifierar olika sätt att studera äldre och deras boendesituation och visar på den variation av områden inom vilka forskning om äldres boende bedrivs. Tillsammans ger de en bred bild av äldres boendesituation och lyfter fram de frågor som särskilt berör äldre, alltifrån de friska och mer rörliga äldre med stora valmöjligheter till de multisjuka äldre som lever längre med sina sjukdomar. Denna heterogenitet ställer stora krav på äldres bostäder och boendemiljöer

    Åldrande på landsbygden : Att leva som äldre i Ydre: Rapport nr 1 från forskningsprojektet Boende, åldrande, livslopp på landsbygden2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Finns det några avgörande skillnader mellan att leva som äldre på landsbygden jämfört med i en stad? Vad innebär det att stora delar av landsbygden avfolkas och att en växande andel av de som bor kvar är just äldre? Vad betyder de värden som förknippas med landsbygden – närhet till naturen, väl fungerande sociala nätverk, förankring i bygden för äldres livskvalitet i en tid med ökad rörlighet och nya kommunikationsformer? Hur kan boende och omsorg för äldre utformas i befolkningsmässigt glesa samhällen? I ett forskningsprojekt undersöker vi hur äldre som lever på landsbygden ser på sitt eget och andras åldrande med en liten landsbygdskommun i Östergötland – Ydre - som exempel. En av våra utgångspunkter är att det finns en stor variation i sättet att leva och därmed i att åldras. I denna första rapport från projektet BÅLL ges en introducerande bild av Ydre som kommun, av de äldres boende och av den forskningslitteratur som finns om att åldras på landsbygden.

    Två porträtt av äldre teknikanvändare. Personor framtagna för Hälsans nya verktyg2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I rapporten presenteras två typfall av äldre teknikanvändare. Porträtten är empiriskt grundade i en studie som genomförts vid Tema Äldre och åldrande, Linköpings universitet. I den har vardagstekniken studerats ur ett livsloppsperspektiv hos en grupp äldre män och kvinnor födda på 1920 och 1930 talen. Personorna som skapats representerar en äldre kvinna respektive en äldre man och deras förhållningssätt till vardagsteknik. Det som främst skiljer dem åt är att kvinnan har en hemdator vilket ger en annan plattform för att använda ny teknik, jämfört med mannen. Personerna är avsedda som stöd i teknik- och produktutveckling för äldre.

    Ageing and the artefacts for living2006In: 18 th Nordic Congress of Gerontology,2006, 2006, p. 376-376Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     Background: There is a fundamental lack of empirical knowledge about how older people use and value technical artefacts and how new technology influence their space of action. Normally the focus is on the impacts and acceptance of a specific new artefact or technology system. By widen the perspective from the particular to the wholeness of the technology landscape we may contribute to a better understanding of how artefacts and systems can strengthen or undermine older people-s activities, participation and independence. We report results from two studies conducted in Norrköping, 2004-2006. We have observed older persons- technology landscape, i.e. their use of tools, devices and technical systems that are available in their environments. The analytical perspective is on the functions and meanings of different artefacts as the elderly themselves assess and comprehend them and on how technology influences their doings (power to act) and future plans (space of actions). Methods: Both studies are qualitative and based on repeated interviews and observations with a group of elderly. Study A: 12 persons, age 67-83, retired but taking part in a variety of activities. Study B: 18 persons, age 85 - 93, all living independently in their own home. Results: The hypothesis that a person-s attitudes, when old, towards technology are a reflection of experiences during his or her life course is supported. The dominant attitude towards new technology is pragmatic. The main criteria when evaluating new artefacts is what functional need it can fulfil. An important such need is security, e.g. the possibility to get assistance if something unexpected happens during the day. There are generation or age related differences between the two groups, e.g. towards the use of a mobile phone or the Internet. The majority in both groups lacks knowledge of how to handle and understand new artefacts. For some this is compensated by support from children and grandchildren. Another argument against new technology is that it is time-consuming. Conclusion: Older persons are well aware that new technology that may affect their daily life is spreading; they hear and talk about it but await actions until necessary. Our preliminary results emphasize the complexity of the domesticating process which seems to be particularly problematic for an old person. However, our studies consist of a small number of respondents with similar living conditions (i.e. working class background) so empirical research in other social groups is needed.

    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel tar vi fasta på ålderns och livshistorians betydelse för individens förhållande till vardagstekniken. Den som har levt länge har byggt upp sitt teknikrum under lång tid och förvärvat vanor, erfarenheter och intressen som ger en "teknikstil". En "gammal" person gör matchningen mellan det befintliga och det nya med andra förtecken än en ung eller medelålders.28 Just den matchningen intresserar oss särskilt här. Vi koncentrerar oss därför på hur äldre förändrar sitt teknikrum genom att släppa in nya tekniska objekt och omvänt utsorterar sådant som man inte längre tycker att man behöver.

    To age as a man: Ageing and masculinity in a small rural community in Sweden2013In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 58-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to add to knowledge on the relation between ageing and masculinity in society by looking at how older unmarried and childless men in a small Swedish rural community articulate their masculinity in relation to being old. The study is based on interviews with eleven men. An intersectional perspective is used to analyse how age and gender interplay in the self-presentations as well as how their identity is articulated in relation to the rural context. The interviewed men articulate their identity through the use of a logic we call ‘what I have done is who I am’. This reaffirms the rural aspect of their masculine identity as well as the work-centred values of midlife as a reference point in the identity construction in old age when their bodies to a diminishing degree can live up to the physically defined masculinity of the rural context. In this situation, the local rural community is important for the way the men perform both age and masculinity in their daily lives. The men’s place integration can have a mitigating effect as it makes it possible to have their physically defined rural masculinity accepted as the ‘truth’ of who they are. To be known, to have their history known, we argue is central for the resignification of the old, devalued, body as a masculine body. Their continued place integration is a resource in that it can sustain their self-presentation as men defined by their stoic work character and not by their age.

    Choice and control for people ageing with intellectual disability in group homes2016In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 127-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Many people ageing with intellectual disabilities (ID) age in place in group homes. Participation is a central concept in support and service to people with ID, but age is often a determining factor for participation among this group. Choice and control are dimensions of participation.

    Aim: The aim of this article is to explore how choice and control in the everyday life of people ageing with ID is expressed and performed in the group home’s semi-private spaces.

    Material and methods: Participant observations and interviews with residents and staff were conducted in four different group homes in Sweden that had older residents.

    Results: Four categories were found that can be understood as aspects of choice and control in the group home’s semi-private spaces in the everyday life of people ageing with ID. These categories included aspects such as space and object, time and routines, privacy, and a person-centred approach.

    Conclusion and significance: People ageing with ID are vulnerable when it comes to maintaining choice and control in various situations in the home’s semi-private spaces. It is argued that occupational therapists should include this occupational arena in their evaluations and interventions for people ageing with ID.

    Staff experiences of participation in everyday life of older people with intellectual disability who live in group homes2015In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 335-352Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to explore ways in which members of staff in group homes for people with intellectual disability experience participation, and what participation means for older people with intellectual disability. Qualitative interviews were performed with 15 members of staff at group homes in Sweden. The findings of this study are illustrated by considering two interacting themes and six subthemes. These involve staff experiences of the meaning of participation and factors which facilitate or inhibit it. The meaning of participation was expressed as doing and feeling. Staff described that participation for older people with intellectual disability was influenced by the individual characteristics of the residents, such as the relationship between age and disability. They also expressed the view that participation was influenced by organizational and physical contextual factors such as economics, time and space as well as the social environment. The latter included staff knowledge and skills, family and peers.

    Ageing in people with intellectual disability as it is understood by group home staff2016In: Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, ISSN 1366-8250, E-ISSN 1469-9532, Vol. 41, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The number of older residents in group homes for people with intellectual disability (ID) is increasing. This interview study was focused on how group home staff addresses issues of ageing and being old among people with ID. Twelve members of staff at four different group homes in Sweden were interviewed. Findings revealed old age as something unarticulated in the group home. Group home staff felt unprepared to meet age-related changes in residents. The study also revealed that group home staff had a one-tracked way of describing the process of ageing among people with ID, seemingly rooted in a medical paradigm of disability. This study suggests that there is a need to raise issues and give guidance related to ageing and ID in disability policy documents in order to support the development of a formal culture that addresses old age and ID in disability services.

    Lived experience of ageing and later life in older people with intellectual disability2013In: NNDR 2013, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Older people with intellectual disability (ID) are a growing population in Sweden as in the rest of the western world. The challenges to understand what it means to be old for an individual who have lived her whole life with ID need to be addressed. The aim of this study is to explore how older people ID who live in group accommodations describe their lived experience in relation to ageing and later life. The study has a phenomenological approach, based on the concept of life-world. Individual qualitative interviews were conducted with twelve people (five men, seven women) with ID, between 48 to 71 years (m=64), who lived in four different group accommodations in southern Sweden. A semi-structured interview guide was used. The descriptive phenomenological analysis method used discloses a structure consisting of themes and subthemes. The findings of the study reveal the informants’ lived experience of ageing and later life as a multifaceted phenomenon expressed through the two themes “Age as a process of change” and “Existential aspects of ageing” and six substantializing subthemes.  The own body is essential for both how ageing and becoming old is experienced and for how this experience are expressed. The study also finds social, cultural and historical dimensions of the life-world to be important in the informants’ experience of ageing and later life and manifest the existence of a collective life-world for older people with ID, being the unique experiences that the informants share because of their disability and its life course consequences.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore how older people with intellectual disability (ID), who live in group accommodation, describe their lived experience in relation to ageing and later life. The study adopted a phenomenological approach, based on the concept of life-world. Individual, qualitative interviews were conducted with twelve people with ID (five men, seven women), between the ages of 48 and 71 (m=64), who lived in four different group accommodation units in southern Sweden. A descriptive phenomenological analysis method was used, which disclosed a structure consisting of themes and subthemes. The findings of the study reveal the informants’ lived experience of ageing and later life as a multifaceted phenomenon, expressed through the two themes, “age as a process of change” and “existential aspects of ageing”, each with three sub themes. along with six substantialising[SK1]  subthemes. The body is an essential element in their experience of ageing and growing old, and in how this experience is expressed. The study also finds social, cultural and historical dimensions of the life-world to be important in the informants’ experience of ageing and later life. This supports understanding of  the existence of a collective life-world for older people with ID, the unique experiences the informants share because of their disability and its consequences for their life course.

    All the things I have - handling one’s material room in old age2014In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 31, p. 110-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    How technology in everyday lives is perceived by the oldest old2009Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article elucidates how old people apprehend the technology they use and meet in their everyday life. Eighteen individuals, all being among the oldest old, have been interviewed. Their experiences of, possession, use and attitude towards technology are highlighted. The findings can be separated into four categories: "Perceptions of technology‟, "Technology holdings‟, "Handling technology‟ and "Compensatory technology in old age‟. In public policy the importance of technology for independence and participation is emphasized. It is commonly argued that technology advances would benefit older people. This is not supported by the attitude towards technology the participants in this study express. The result underlines that technology must be experienced as beneficial to be appropriated into the daily doings. The perspective of old people themselves has to be addressed in order to understand which technological solutions they will find helpful, rather than stigmatizing or too complicated.

    Ageing and the Artefacts for Living: Technology through the Life Course2009Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines old people‟s interaction with everyday technology from a life course perspective. The purpose is to contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between changes in the physical environment and old people‟s doings.

    The empirical base is interviews with 29 individuals, born between 1912 and 1940. In the analysis we introduce some concepts inspired by technology studies: technology landscape, technology room, standard package and defining objects.

    The analysis is concentrated on three phases of the life course: living in the parental home, living as a married person with a family, and living as a senior-citizen. We explore how the participants lived, what technological objects their household possessed and used, and how new technology was appropriated. In the last phase we additionally investigate which technical objects have become of less importance and what expectations they have for future use of technology. The analysis shows that the participants‟ technology rooms were similar from the parental home period to the end of the family period. In the senior citizen period, differences in possession of defining objects can be found between persons -85 and 85+. At higher ages an „ageing turn‟ exists as age itself becomes the reason not to acquire new artefacts. Decisions on how the technology room should be used and valued are shaped by the individual‟s techno-biography, needs, capabilities and future life expectations.

    A review of research with elderly people as respondents reported in occupational therapy journals2008In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 15, no 2, p. 116-126Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to review research presented in occupational therapy journals with the elderly as respondents. With an increasing number of elderly people in society research including the elderly should play a vital role within occupational therapy especially since emphasis on subjective experience is an important factor in the core constructs of occupation. Through a review of six occupational therapy journals, covering the period 2001--2006, it was discovered that 15% of the total number of articles included the elderly as respondents. The published articles with the elderly as respondents were mainly quantitative with the most frequent subject being instrument developing and testing. Most studies had a population group of mixed ages, making it hard to draw conclusions concerning the elderly population. The conclusion is that more research of a qualitative nature reflecting the subjective perspectives of the elderly is needed, especially regarding the oldest age group since this is the fastest growing and there is still limited knowledge regarding their perspective on matters concerning their everyday lives and their doings. Technological developments are implied to benefit elderly people but more research and discussion is needed on how this will affect both the elderly and occupational therapy theory and practice.

    Doing everyday life-experiences of the oldest old2009In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 99-109Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to explore how a group of elderly people, living and managing on their own, describe and experience their everyday doings. Interviews and observations were conducted with 18 community-living people aged 85 and above. The experiences of 'Doing everyday life' are described in five overarching themes: 'Experiencing being old', 'Doings in everyday life', 'Patterns of the day', 'Altered doings', and 'The importance of time'. What is done during an ordinary day does not differ much from earlier in life, but how the doings are performed has changed. Being occupied and staying healthy and sound in mind was stressed as important in old age and even if reduced energy and functional constraints limited the doings, a strong volition to manage independently was expressed. The participants perceived society as regarding the elderly as useless and worthless. Knowledge emanating from the very old themselves is vital to diversify the image of elderly people and to offer interventions and support adapted to their needs and desires.
