”Dom kunde väl få lov att sitta ner och dricka kaffe och prata ibland…” – De äldres syn på hemtjänstinsatserna, relationen till personalen och hjälpen från närstående

Sammanfattning: The aim of the study is to examine what kind of help the elderly get, if the elderly get the help they want, how the staff treat them and how much contact they have with others than the home-help staff. Further the study looks on how the well-being of the elderly was affected by the relationship with the home-help staff and contact with other people than the home-help staff. To conduct the study interviews with 14 elderly with home-help service in Helsingborg was done – of these, eight persons had home-help service from a municipal funded group and six of them had home-help service from a private healthcare company. In the analysis three theories are used: The activity theory, the disengagement theory and the meaning of a social network. I also used the special decision model used in elder care in Helsingborg and Swedish research related to the study. The findings show how most of the elderly in the study were very pleased with the help from the home-help staff. Most of the elderly I interviewed also appreciated when the staff had some extra time and could stay and talk for a while, although this seemed to happen quite infrequently. Most of the elderly had some kind of activity where they met other people.
