Elevating every day life – a description of older people’s experiences with participation in the project ’Äldre på vift’ (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med examensarbetet var att beskriva äldre personers upplevelser av att ha deltagit i projektet ’Äldre på vift’. Författarna valde en kvalitativ design. Intervjuer genomfördes för att beskriva information om deltagarnas upplevelser av att ha deltagit i projektet ’Äldre på vift’ i Nässjö kommun. Sammanlagt deltog 10 deltagare i studien mellan 70-90 år. Efter genomförda intervjuer analyserades materialet i enlighet med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av Graneheim och Lundman (2004). Slutsatsen är att samtliga deltagare fick positiva upplevelser som känslan av ökad delaktighet, känslan av ökat välmående och en ökad tro på den egna förmågan vilket bidrog till en aktivare vardag för många. Deltagarna upplevde hela projektet som ett lyft i vardagen då man fick komma ut mer om dagarna och få möjligheten att delta i sociala aktiviteter i grupp tillsammans med andra. Vidare uttryckte deltagarna en stark förhoppning om att projektet ’Äldre på vift’ borde få fortsätta även i framtiden för att fler äldre också ska kunna få ett lyft i vardagen. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe how older people experienced their participation in the project ’Äldre på vift’. The authors chose to use a qualitive design. Interviews were conducted in order to obtain descriptive information from the participants’ experiences of the project ’Äldre på vift’ in Nässjö county. The overall number of participants in this study were 10 older people aged 70-90 years old. The content analysis of the interviews were conducted in accordance with content analysis as described by Graneheim & Lundman (2004). The conclusion of all the participants were that they all got positive experiences, for example increased feeling of participation, increased feeling of well-being and an increased belief in their own self-capacity which contributed to a more active every day living.

All of the participants experienced the project as to be rewarding as an elevating in their every day life. They all put an emphasis on the importance of being able to participate in group activities outside of their home. The participants also wished to see the project ’Äldre på vift’ to be continued in the future so that more older people like them could get a elevating in their every day life.
