Beschreibung

The general aim of this book is to examine the "Quality of Life" by elderly receiving care in Sweden. The study will investigate elderly who are receiving care, how they conceptualize and express quality of life. It will show how key persons in the elders' network understand these services and which structural factors are considered important. My interest is the increasing elderly population and the valuable role they play in their various communities. Their contributions can only be ensured if the elders enjoy good health and if societies address their needs; these have attracted many researchers from multidisciplinary back grounds to seek ways by which quality of life for the elderly can be enhanced. Sweden's elderly care policies are in compromise with this ambition as will be trace in this book. However, my perspective is a social workers' in which social political structures as well as individuals well-being will be in focus. Such a design will try to find out what kind of support the elderly receive and how they understand these supports. A book like this can be recommended to NGOs, researchers, policy makers working in the area of elderly care.
