En öppen dörr - Enhetschefer om ledarskap och tillgänglighet inom äldreomsorgen
Sammanfattning: Abstract The media sometimes give a dark image of Swedish elderly care. Responsibility for the care of the elderly is put on the managers. Apart from budget matters, they are responsible for staff as well as care-takers. The aim of this study was to examine the manager role at homes for the elderly from the point of view of the managers themselves. The material consists of six semi – structured interviews with managers. The theory I used to do my analysis was the Human Resource – perspective and I chose to interview six managers that all worked at homes for elderly in Sweden. I found that the managers, in general, had high demands on their staff and that it was important for them to be present and available for both their staff and the elderly. Their discretion was more or less limited because of the fact that they were managers in mid-level but the thing that was most important for them was the wellbeing of both the elderly and their staff. Their opinions varied when it came to how much the elderly could decide over their time and ways of living. Some of my interviewed expressed that the elderly had very little to say about their everyday life while others was of the opinion that they were allowed to decide about almost everything. The main factors that affected this were the state of health of the elderly, their age, their relatives and the staff.
