Abstract [en]

This is a follow-up study of intensive home-based rehabilitation from older people’s perspectives. The aim was to explore older adults’ descriptions of interactional needs related to autonomy in life. The purpose was also to explore the importance of significant others in the reablement process.

Method: The sample consisted of 23 women aged 72–92 who were included consecutively in the first project year. Data were collected through face-to-face semi-structured interviews that were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed using qualitative latent content analysis.

Results: Regaining autonomy through reablement was achieved by the interviewees although not always to the same extent as before. Three themes related to interactional needs were identified: (1) Transitional relations, referring to encounters with staff in time-limited relations. (2) More stable relations with significant others without limitation of time. (3) The acceptance of growing older and of death as a “natural departure”. Transitional relations with professionals, and more stable relations with significant others, are important parts of the reablement process according to older adults.

In conclusion: Professionals within gerontology need to recognize the social and historical context including the symbolic meanings each older person gives to life’s necessaries. Older adults appreciate reablement which includes rehabilitation goals related to the person’s stable relationships and larger life context.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we discuss the opportunities and challenges of researching ageism from a cross-cultural perspective. We discuss the complexity of exploring diverse ageist practices as performed in different parts of the world. We also reflect upon the socio-cultural backgrounds through which researchers filter the experiences of fieldwork and research on various enactments of ageism. The key tenet of our argument is that these two dimensions interact during the fieldwork to create unique frameworks that researchers apply in their studies.

We confront our experiences of researching ageism in Japan, Poland, Sweden, and West Papua to explore the notion that the socio-cultural context matters to the following aspects of ageism: diversity of ageist practices, societal images of later life, and the researchers’ socio-cultural understandings of ageism. We explore the position of researchers who, on the one hand, apply the privileged perspective of a stranger to their fieldwork, and on the other hand, are deeply embedded in their own socio-cultural background, which affects their way of approaching later life and ageism. We conclude with a notion of establishing a “sense of touch” within the field and a discussion recognizing the potential changes that such an approach can bring to the ways we study ageism worldwide.

Abstract [en]

The aim is to evaluate the effects of intensive home rehabilitation regarding multidimensional health perceptions and other quality of life domains, physical ability and capacity among older people (65+). The design is a randomized controlled study of a reablement intervention with controls receiving traditional home care. The intervention is goal- and user oriented, home-based, time limited (3 months), and organized by an interprofessional team consisting of the professions nurse, enrolled nurses, physiotherapists, social worker, and occupational therapists. The effects of the intervention are measured by self-reported health and quality of life (EQ-5D-5L, HACT) including psychological well-being (GP-CORE), physical capacity (SPPB, hand dynamometer test), activity performance (COPM), and home care hours needed. Data are collected at inclusion (T1; applying for home care), after the three months intervention (T2), and at six months (T3). Primary outcome analyses will be performed according to intention to treat; 2 x 3 mixed design (group x time) ANCOVA with each dependent variable at T1 as covariate. Based on a medium effect size in favour of the intervention in the pilot study, and a dropout of 20%, the power calculation indicated that 240 persons should be included. The project will contribute with evidence of the effects of interprofessional home rehabilitation for reablement, and consequences for older persons’ bio-psycho-social health. The project is ongoing with more than 120 persons included. The intervention may result in reduced costs for care, but especially individual gains in relation to reduced care needs, maintained independence and good health.
