    Long-term predictors of loneliness in old age: results of a 20-year national study2018In: Aging & Mental Health, ISSN 1360-7863, E-ISSN 1364-6915, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 190-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: The understanding of social phenomena is enhanced if individuals can be studied over longer periods. Regarding loneliness in old age, there is a general lack of longitudinal research. The aim of this study was to examine whether there is an association between loneliness in old age and social engagement 20 years earlier, as stated by life course theory and the convoy model.

    METHOD: Data from the nationally representative Swedish Panel Study of Living Conditions of the Oldest Old (2002 and 2011 data collection waves) and the Swedish Level of Living Survey (1981 and 1991 data collection waves) were used. The sample included 823 individuals with an average age of 62.2 years at baseline and 82.4 years at follow-up.

    RESULTS: Each form of social engagement in old age was significantly associated with the same form of social engagement 20 years earlier. Close forms of social engagement were associated with loneliness in old age; as were more distant forms of social engagement, but only when they were considered solely in old age.

    CONCLUSION: Patterns of social engagement in old age were established at least 20 years earlier and close forms of social engagement are long-term predictors of loneliness, although current social engagement tended to be more influential on loneliness. The study underlines the importance of interventions targeted at close relationships that can provide social support in old age.

    Does couplehood in later life protect against loneliness?

    The purpose of this article is to study the importance of intimate relationships as protection from loneliness in later life. We base the study on a survey of Swedes aged 60–90 (n=1,225) focusing on intimate relationships. The analysis considers neglected issues in ageing research on loneliness: the importance of union form, the importance of looking at relationship dissolution in terms of both widowhood and divorce, and the importance of new late-life unions (a gains perspective). We use two theoretical perspectives: the discrepancy model (realities vs. ideals), and the protection hypothesis, where the partner is generally the first and most important source of support in everyday life. The results show that a partner protects against loneliness and that union form matters: marriage provides the best protection, followed by cohabitation and living apart together (LAT). Feelings of loneliness decrease over time following a union dissolution – and, for men, more rapidly after separation than widowhood. The more one’s ideal union form differs from one’s actual union form, the more common are feelings of loneliness. Initiating a new relationship after a union dissolution protects against loneliness. The article discusses the importance of using union form instead of civil status as relationship indicators in studies of older people in late modern Sweden, and of including separation/divorce as indicators of union dissolution besides widowhood. It also stresses the importance of looking at later life not only from a loss perspective but also from a gains perspective.

    Predictors of loneliness among older women and men in Sweden: A national longitudinal study2015In: Aging & Mental Health, ISSN 1360-7863, E-ISSN 1364-6915, Vol. 19, no 5, p. 409-417Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: Longitudinal research on loneliness in old age has rarely considered loneliness separately for men and women, despite gender differences in life experiences. The objective of this study was to examine the extent to which older women and men (70+) report feelings of loneliness with a focus on: (a) changes in reported loneliness as people age, and (b) which factors predict loneliness.

    Method: Data from the 2004 and 2011 waves of SWEOLD, a longitudinal national survey, was used (n = 587). The prediction of loneliness in 2011 by variables measured in 2004 and 2004–2011 variable change scores was examined in three logistic regression models: total sample, women and men. Variables in the models included: gender, age, education, mobility problems, depression, widowhood and social contacts.

    Results: Older people moved into and out of frequent loneliness over time, although there was a general increase in loneliness with age. Loneliness at baseline, depression increment and recent widowhood were significant predictors of loneliness in all three multivariable models. Widowhood, depression, mobility problems and mobility reduction predicted loneliness uniquely in the model for women; while low level of social contacts and social contact reduction predicted loneliness uniquely in the model for men.

    Conclusion: This study challenges the notion that feelings of loneliness in old age are stable. It also identifies important gender differences in prevalence and predictors of loneliness. Knowledge about such differences is crucial for the development of effective policy and interventions to combat loneliness in later life.

    Social Capital and Loneliness Among the Very Old Living at Home and in Institutional Settings: A Comparative Study2013In: Journal of Aging and Health, ISSN 0898-2643, E-ISSN 1552-6887, Vol. 25, no 6, p. 1013-1035Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between aspects of social capital and loneliness among the very old living at home and in institutional settings. Method: Half of those aged 85 years, and all 90- and 95-year-olds and older in urban and rural municipalities in northern Sweden and western Finland were invited to participate in a cross-sectional population-based study in 2005-2007. A sample of 483 participants who completed the study was included in the analyses. Results: Loneliness was experienced by 55% percent of those living in institutional settings often or sometimes and 45% of those living in their own homes. Loneliness was closely related to living alone, to depression, and to region (northern Sweden). Discussion: Social capital and loneliness are context dependent (i.e., geographical or living environment). Among the very old, the link between social capital resources and loneliness is also highly influenced by health status.

    ‘Are decisions about dischargeof elderly hospital patients mainlyabout freeing blocked beds?’: A qualitative observational study2012In: BMJ. British Medical Journal, E-ISSN 1756-1833, Vol. 2, no 6, p. 1-9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To explore the interactions concerning thefrail and elderly patients having to do with dischargefrom acute hospital wards and their participation inmedical decision-making. The views of the patients andthe medical staff were both investigated.

    Design: A qualitative observational and interviewstudy using the grounded theory.

    Setting and participants: The setting was threehospitals in rural and urban areas of two counties inSweden of which one was a teaching hospital. The datacomprised observations, healthcare staff interviews andpatient interviews. The selected patients were all aboutto be informed that they were going to be discharged.

    Results: The patients were seldom invited toparticipate in the decision-making regarding discharge.Generally, most communications regarding dischargewere between the doctor and the nurse, after which thepatient was simply informed about the decision. It wasobserved that the discharge information was oftengiven in an indirect way as if other, albeit absent,people were responsible for the decision. Interviewswith the healthcare staff revealed their preoccupationwith the need to free up beds: ‘thinking aboutdischarge planning all the time’ was the core category.This focus not only failed to fulfil the complex needs ofelderly patients, it also generated feelings of frustrationand guilt in the staff, and made the patients feelunwelcome.

    Conclusions: Frail elderly patients often did notparticipate in the medical decision-making regardingtheir discharge from hospital. The staff was highlyfocused on patients getting rapidly discharged, whichmade it difficult to fulfil the complex needs of thesepatients.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ojämlikheten bland äldre tar sig många uttryck. I bokens kapitel ställs frågor om möjligheter att arbeta längre, och hur det går för dem som måste sluta arbeta i förtid. Andra frågor är hur det nya pensionssystemet fungerar ur rättvisesynpunkt, liksom hur jämlikt samhället egentligen är när det gäller ekonomi, hälsa och äldreomsorg. Boken visar att ojämlikhet i ålderdomen existerar i varierande grad och inom flera välfärdsområden. Med mer jämlika livsvillkor skapas förutsättningar för en god ålderdom för fler.Boken vänder sig till studerande inom socialt arbete, sociologi, vårdvetenskap och närliggande ämnen, i synnerhet på kurser med inriktning på äldre och välfärdsfrågor.

    Too complex and time-consuming to fit in! Physicians' experiences of elderly patients and their participation in medical decision making: a grounded theory study2012In: BMJ Open, ISSN 2044-6055, E-ISSN 2044-6055, Vol. 2, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective To explore physicians' thoughts and considerations of participation in medical decision making by hospitalised elderly patients.

    Design A qualitative study using focus group interviews with physicians interpreted with grounded theory and completed with a questionnaire.

    Setting and participants The setting was three different hospitals in two counties in Sweden. Five focus groups were conducted with physicians (n=30) in medical departments, with experience of care of elderly patients.

    Results Physicians expressed frustration at not being able to give good care to elderly patients with multimorbidity, including letting them participate in medical decision making. Two main categories were found: ‘being challenged’ by this patient group and  ‘being a small part of the healthcare production machine’. Both categories were explained by the core category ‘lacking in time’. The reasons for the feeling of ‘being challenged’ were explained by the subcategories ‘having a feeling of incompetence’, ‘having to take relatives into consideration’ and ‘having to take cognitive decline into account’. The reasons for the feeling of ‘being a small part of the healthcare production machine’ were explained by the subcategories ‘at the mercy of routines' and ‘inadequate remuneration system’, both of which do not favour elderly patients with multimorbidity.

    Conclusions Physicians find that elderly patients with multimorbidity lead to frustration by giving them a feeling of professional inadequacy, as they are unable to prioritise this common and rapidly growing patient group and enable them to participate in medical decision making. The reason for this feeling is explained by lack of time, competence, holistic view, appropriate routines and proper remuneration systems for treating these patients.

    Are elderly people with co-morbidities involved adequately in medical decision making when hospitalised?: A cross-sectional survey2011In: BMC Geriatrics, ISSN 1471-2318, E-ISSN 1471-2318, Vol. 11, no 46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND:

    Medical decision making has long been in focus, but little is known of the preferences and conditions for elderly people with co-morbidities to participate in medical decision making. The main objective of the present study was to investigate the preferred and the actual degree of control, i.e. the role elderly people with co-morbidities wish to assume and actually had with regard to information and participation in medical decision making during their last stay in hospital.This study was a cross-sectional survey including three Swedish hospitals with acute admittance. The participants were patients aged 75 years and above with three or more diagnoses according to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) and three or more hospitalisations during the last year.

    METHODS:

    We used a questionnaire combined with a telephone interview, using the Control Preference Scale to measure each participant's preferred and actual role in medical decision making during their last stay in hospital. Additional questions were asked about barriers to participation in decision making and preferred information seeking role. The results are presented with descriptive statistics with kappa weights.

    RESULTS:

    Of the 297 elderly patients identified, 52.5% responded (n = 156, 46.5% male). Mean age was 83.1 years. Of the respondents, 42 of 153 patients said that they were not asked for their opinion (i.e. no shared decision making). Among the other 111 patients, 49 had their exact preferred level of participation, 37 had less participation than they would have preferred, and 23 had more responsibility than they would have preferred. Kappa statistics showed a moderate agreement between preferred and actual role (κw = 0.57; 95% CI: 0.45-0.69). Most patients wanted to be given more information without having to ask. There was no correlation between age, gender, or education and preferred role. 35% of the patients agreed that they experienced some of the various barriers to decision making that they were asked about: 1) the severity of their illness, 2) doctors with different treatment strategies, 3) difficulty understanding the medical information, and 4) difficulty understanding doctors who did not speak the patient's own language.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    Physicians are not fully responsive to patient preferences regarding either the degree of communication or the patient's participation in decision making. Barriers to participation can be a problem, and should be taken into account more often when dealing with hospitalised elderly people.

    OBJECTIVE: To deepen the knowledge of frail elderly patients' preferences for participation in medical decision making during hospitalization. METHODS: Qualitative study using content analysis of semi-structured interviews.

    RESULTS: Patient participation to frail elderly means information, not the wish to take part in decisions about their medical treatments. They view the hospital care system as an institution of power with which they cannot argue. Participation is complicated by barriers such as the numerous persons involved in their care who do not know them and their preferences, differing treatment strategies among doctors, fast patient turnover in hospitals, stressed personnel and linguistic problems due to doctors not always speaking the patient's own language.

    CONCLUSION: The results of the study show that, to frail elderly patients, participation in medical decision making is primarily a question of good communication and information, not participation in decisions about medical treatments.

    PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: More time should be given to thorough information and as few people as possible should be involved in the care of frail elderly. Linguistic problems should be identified to make it possible to take the necessary precautions to prevent negative impact on patient participation.

    Måste vi utplåna den fjärde åldern?2009In: Åldrande, åldersordning, ålderism / [ed] Håkan Jönson, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2009, 1:1, p. 210-221Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel har tre ingångar. Den första tar upp gerontologins kategoriseringar av äldre. Den andra ingången tar upp folkhälsofrågor. Den tredje ingången tar upp existentiella frågor om åldrande och döende. Kapitlet diskuterar den till synes evighetslånga frågan om äldrebilden och vilken verklighet som kan riskera att hamna i skymundan när en annan lyfts fram. I dagsläget förefaller situationen för de mest skröpliga ha hamnat i skuggan av rapporterade hälsoförbättringar bland äldre.

    Ålderism2008 (ed. 1:1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ålderism handlar om ålder som grund för fördomar och diskriminering, med betoning på situationen för äldre. Ålderism är kanske den mest accepterade formen av fördom som existerar i dag, och den form av diskriminering som det tas lättast på. Negativa uttalanden och åsikter är accepterade på ett helt annat sätt om de är riktade mot äldre än om de vore riktade mot andra grupper. Denna bok tecknar en bakgrund till de fördomsfulla attityder mot äldre, ålderdom och åldrandet samt de stereotyper och den diskriminering av äldre som förekommer i dag. Åldrandet och ålderdomen är frågor som ständigt diskuteras. Boken riktar sig främst till högskolestuderande inom samhälls- och beteendevetenskap, socialt arbete, social omsorg och vård, liksom till

    Abstract [en]

       To understand contemporary ageing, it is necessary to recognise its diversity. Drawing on an extraordinary range of theory, original research and empirical sources, this book assesses the stereotyped conceptions of ageing, and offers a critical and updated perspective.

    The book: explores the diversity of individual pathways of ageing, the sources of identifications, migration and otherness, and the tension between social structures and personal agency; considers multidisciplinary and international perspectives as an important means of understanding the diversity of ageing, and the need for change in established notions and policies; addresses key issues, such as global ageing, migration, transnational community and citizenship; incorporates theories and findings from psychology and sociology, anthropology and demography, social policy and health sciences. "Ageing and diversity" is aimed at academics, students and practitioners in the fields of sociology, social psychology, health, and welfare. It will also be of interest to all those who want to challenge stereotypes about ageing

    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.
