: From possibility to force? - Case makers experiences of changes in the application of the remain living principle (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of our study was to shad a light on case makers possibilities to apply the remain living principle based on its origin purpose and what they experience this lead to.

We performed our study through qualitative approach and conducted six semi structured interviews with case makers who worked at least five years as case makers for older people according to Socialtjänstlagen. The result shows that the remain living principle is applied in a different way today than before, because of the organisations and the municipality´s guidelines and directives based on the municipality´s economy and resources are increasingly restricting the case makers discretion. Which according to the case makers leads to their professional judgment being disregarded and that the elderly does not always have a choice if they want to stay at home or not.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med vår studie var att belysa om biståndshandläggarnas förutsättningar att tillämpa kvarboendeprincipen utifrån dess ursprungssyfte har förändrats samt vad de upplever att det leder till. Vi genomförde vår studie genom en kvalitativ ansats och genomförde sex stycken semistrukturerade intervjuer med biståndshandläggare som arbetat minst fem år med biståndshandläggning för äldre inom Socialtjänstlagen. Resultatet visar på att kvarboendeprincipen tillämpas på ett annat sätt idag än tidigare eftersom organisationens och kommunens riktlinjer samt direktiv med utgångspunkt i kommunens ekonomi och resurser allt mer inskränker på biståndshandläggarnas handlingsutrymme. Enligt biståndshandläggarna leder detta till att deras professionella bedömning åsidosätts samt att de äldre inte alltid har ett val om de ska bo kvar hemma eller inte.
