Sammanfattning: Domestic violence is acknowledged as a social problem but the research is often focused on younger individuals. The people who is affected by domestic violence is not just a group of homogeneous women but can vary in age, social and economic status. Elderly people are also often viewed as a homogeneous group of individuals. This can result in a neglection of their individual needs. The age limit is rising which results in a growth in the elderly population. This causes an increased pressure in the existing systems to adapt new strategies to meet the elderly populations needs. There is a lack of previous research in the area of elderly women who is affected by domestic abuse and how the municipality works with the problem. There for in this study we aim to identify how a municipality care department work against domestic violence amongst elderly women and what strategies they are using to combat the social problem.
