Abstract [en]

This chapter studies patterns of informal helping in Scandinavia. Previous research has assumed that due to the extensive welfare state, informal helping has been less important in the Scandinavian countries. However, the results presented in this chapter show that informal helping is widespread in these countries. Furthermore, earlier studies on this topic have taken either a ‘welfare state/care culture’ perspective or a ‘civil society’ perspective as a point of departure. We argue that both perspectives are relevant, but they point to different forms of informal help in terms of who are the recipients of help. Whereas help provided to relatives may be viewed as a ‘family duty’ and linked to a certain care culture, help provided to non-relatives is arguably more comparable to behaviour driven by altruism and therefore linked to civic engagement. The results suggest that the latter perspective is more predominant in Denmark than in Norway and Sweden. In Denmark, informal help provided to non-relatives is associated with volunteering and social trust. The findings call for further theorising on the relationship between informal help, the welfare state and civil society.

Abstract [en]

Older people ageing with severe mental illness (SMI) usually fall in between mental health care and old age care services. The role of informal care in filling this gap is recognized. The role of other welfare providers, such as voluntary organizations, is unclear. The aim of this article is to analyze and discuss local voluntary organizations' ability to recognize and respond to the needs of older people with SMI in the community.

11 local organizations focusing on mental illness, social care or old age were identified in a mid-sized Swedish city. Seven voluntary organizations participated in the study.

Our analysis revealed three overarching themes: 'Age as a non-issue?', 'Public and voluntary sector (non)links' and 'organizational vulnerabilities'. Our results show that older people with SMI are to some extent also invisible in the voluntary sector. We were also able to discern differences in the 'we-for-us' organizations that provide support for their own members with SMI, and 'we-for-them' organizations that provide help to a broader group.

Overall, older people with SMI remain a relatively invisible as a group for the voluntary organizations. We discuss these findings in relation to the specificity of the group and welfare contexts of voluntary work in communities.

Abstract [en]

We estimate how much caregiving men and women respectively do, and how much of the caregiving is done by older (65+) and younger persons, inside their household and for other households, in Spain and in Sweden. To assess this, we use self-reported hours of caregiving from two national surveys about caregiving, performed in 2014 (Spain, N = 2003; Sweden, N = 1193). Spain and Sweden have dissimilar household structures, and different social services for older (65+) persons. Caregivers, on average, provide many more hours of care in Spain than in Sweden. Women provide about 58% of all hours of caregiving, in Spain in all age groups, in Sweden only among younger caregivers. The reason is the dominance of partner caregivers among older Swedes, with older men and women providing equal hours of care. Family caregiving inside the household is more extensive in the more complex Spanish households than in Swedish households. Family care between households prevails in Sweden, where the large majority of older persons live with a partner only, or alone. This is increasingly common in Spain, although it remains at a lower level. We estimate that older persons provide between 22% and 33% of all hours of caregiving in Spain, and between 41% and 49% in Sweden. Patterns of caregiving appear to be determined mainly by demography and household structure.
