: Older people with alcohol abuse - how are they treated in Swedish home care? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Enligt forskning ökar alkoholkonsumtionen bland personer som är 65 år och äldre. Detta antas innebära att hemtjänstpersonal kommer att stöta på alkoholberoende allt oftare i arbetet. Syftet med denna studie är att bidra till en ökad kunskap om hur arbetet kring äldre vårdtagare med problematisk alkoholkonsumtion bedrivs inom hemtjänsten.

Som teoretisk grund för studien användes makt, ålderism, synen på människan som objekt/subjekt samt synsätt på alkoholmissbruk. En kvalitativ metod bestående av åtta intervjuer med hemtjänstpersonal genomfördes.

Resultatet visar att respondenterna tycker det är viktigt att vara värderingsfri i arbetet. De beaktar även vårdtagarnas rätt till privatliv. Enligt socialtjänstlagen ska verksamheter inom socialt arbete bygga på respekt för människors självbestämmanderätt och integritet, något som respondenterna beaktar i sitt arbete. Svårigheter som respondenterna stöter på i arbetet löser de bland annat genom att diskutera med kollegor, något som nämndes som strategier.

Det framkom också att respondenterna anser att de ibland inte har de förutsättningar som krävs för att möta den berörda gruppen.

Abstract [en]

According to research, alcohol consumption among people aged 65 and over increases. This is supposed to mean that homecare staff will encounter alcohol addiction more and more frequently at work. The purpose of this study is to contribute to an increased knowledge of how work on elderly patients with problematic alcohol consumption is conducted within homecare.

As a theoretical basis for the study, power, ageism, the view of man as object / subject, and approach to alcohol abuse were used. A qualitative method consisting of eight interviews with homecare staff was conducted.

The result shows that the respondents find it important to be value-free at work. They also take into account the patients’ right to privacy. According to the Social Services Act, activities within social work must be based on respect for people's self-determination and integrity, something that the respondents consider in their work. Difficulties encountered by the respondents in the work are solved, among other things, by discussing with colleagues, something that was mentioned as strategies.

It also emerged that the respondents believe that they sometimes don’t have the conditions required to meet the relevant group.
