Granted home care service – a comparison between two municipalities (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilka hemtjänstinsatser som beviljades till äldre invånare i två av Dalarnas kommuner under 2016, och om det fanns någon skillnad i antal beviljade insatser mellan kommunerna. Ett slumpmässigt urval av 64 personer från varje kommun gjordes, vilket möjliggjorde deskriptiv analys av beviljade hemtjänstinsatser och bivariat analys av samband mellan kommun och undersökningspersonernas ålder, kön samt civilstånd. Resultaten visade att kommunerna hade ett liknande utbud av hemtjänstinsatser, men att det fanns en signifikant skillnad mellan kommunerna i antalet beviljade insatser. Variabeln kommun förändrade sambanden mellan undersökningspersonernas ålder, kön och civilstånd. Variabeln kommun förändrade även sambandet mellan utsträckning av beviljade serviceinsatser, ålder och civilstånd. Insatsen social aktivitet beviljades i större utsträckning till personer med högre ålder i den ena kommunen medan sambandet var det motsatta i den andra kommunen. Resultaten diskuteras i relation till tidigare forskning samt institutionell teoribildning och tolkas kunna bero på konforma krafter och lokal organisering.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to explore what home care services were granted to older residents of two municipalities in Dalarna in 2016, and whether there were differences between the municipalities in the level of services. A random sample of 64 cases from each municipality’s database was drawn, allowing for descriptive analysis of services granted and bivariate analysis of associations with municipality and age, gender, and living arrangements of cases. The results showed that the municipalities offered similar home care services, but that the level of services granted differed significantly between municipalities. Municipality moderated the relationships between age, gender, and living arrangements of cases, and between the level of "serviceinsatser" and both age and living arrangements. Social activity service was granted more to older people in one municipality but to younger people in the other municipality. The results are discussed in relation to institutional theory and interpreted as due to conforming forces and local organization.
