Abstract [en]

This study aimed at taking part of the thoughts about light and colour in nursing home facilities from the perspective of actors from different sectors within health care for older people. Eight persons were interviewed, and the material was analyzed using a qualitative content analysis. According to the findings both colour and light were perceived as important aspects within nursing home facilities. Colour contrasts were seen as supportive for persons with cognitive and visual disabilities, and were used mainly in bathrooms and dining rooms. The informants also reported the importance of adequate light due to decreasing visual functioning and strong lighting was perceived as essential in dining rooms. In addition, this study showed varying views from different professions on the relationship between colour and light concluding the importance of interdisciplinarity and exchange of knowledge.
