Older people' s experience of activities in daily life after fall. : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Fallolyckor är vanligt förekommande bland äldre personer i Sverige. Trots detta saknas studier på de drabbades upplevelse efter ett fall. Syfte: Examensarbetets syfte var därför att beskriva hur äldre upplever sina dagliga aktiviteter efter fall. Metod: Metoden för examensarbetet var kvalitativ med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Nio personer i södra Sverige mellan 71–94 år har deltagit. Materialet har analyserats genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Resultatet mynnade ut i tre kategorier, känslor som påverkar utförandet av aktiviteter, fysiska upplevelser som leder till begränsningar samt strategier för att hantera vardagen. Efter fall upplevde många trötthet, rädsla och oro. Även smärta och försämrad rörelseförmåga förekom bland deltagarna. Konsekvenserna efter fall upplevdes påverka och begränsa vardagliga aktiviteter. Slutsats: I resultatet framkom att de personliga erfarenheterna, känslorna och upplevelsen av fall hade minst lika stor påverkan på vardagen som den tillhörande fysiska skadan.

Abstract [en]

Fall accidents are common among older people in Sweden. Despite that there is lack of studies about the affected person's experience after a fall. Purpose: The purpose of the study is therefore to describe how older people’s experience their daily activities after falling. Method: The study was a qualitative interview study with semi-structured interviews. Nine people 71-94 years old from south Sweden have been participating in the interview study. The collected data was analyzed with a qualitative content analysis. Result: The result was divided into three categories:  Feelings that affect the performance of activities, physical experiences that lead to limitations and strategies for managing everyday life. Many experienced tiredness, fear and anxiety after a fall. Even pain and impaired mobility occurred among the participants. The consequences after a fall were found to affect and limit the everyday life. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study the personal experiences, feelings and the experience of the fall had at least as much influence on the daily life as the physical injury.
