Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete i socialt arbete belyser hur äldre personer upplever övergången till en beviljad hemtjänstinsats. Genom kvalitativa intervjuer med fyra äldre män på landsbygden har det empiriska materialet samlats in. För att analysera resultatet har vi använt oss av KASAM och aktivitetsteorin. Resultatet visade att de äldre männen har haft en lyckad övergång. De ansåg att hjälpen som de fick av hemtjänsten bidrog till att de kunde känna meningsfullhet och självständighet i sin tillvaro. Den sociala samvaron och den kontakt de fick med hemtjänstpersonalen betydde mycket för dem. En viktig aspekt som bidragit till att övergången varit positiv är den dagverksamhet männen deltog i. Slutsatser man kan dra från studien är att männens accepterande inställning till övergången, gemenskap med hemtjänstpersonalen och deltagande i dagverksamheten har bidragit till de positiva erfarenheterna.

Abstract [en]

This Bachelor’s thesis in social work highlights how older people experience the transition to a committed home care effort. The empirical material has been gathered through qualitative interviews with four older men in a rural area. The interviews have been analyzed with regard to the activity theory and KASAM. The results showed that the older men had a successful transition. They felt that the help they received from home care services contributed to a meaningful and independent life. The social interaction and the contact they got from the home help staff, meant a lot to them. One important aspect that contributed to a positive transition is the daytime activities the men attended. Conclusions that can be drawn from the study is that their own accepting attitude to the transition, and the social interaction they received from home care staff and the daytime activities have contributed to the positive experiences
