Abstract [en]

The primary aim of the present study was to describe how older men manage food shopping and cooking. The secondary aim was to describe older men’s habits in relation to their family situation and disabilities. Older men, both married (n=30) and single living (n=25), aged 64-88 years and living in ordinary housing, were included in the study. The men were diagnosed as having one of the following three diseases: Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis or stroke. Data were collected using the ADL taxonomy and a qualitative interview. Both quantitative and qualitative data analysis were conducted. Results showed that most of the men managed food shopping and cooking independently. No differences were found in relation to the three diagnoses, but there were differences in relation to family situation. Married men shopped for food at the supermarket together with their spouse on a weekly basis, while single-living men preferred the neighbourhood shop. Disabled single-living men received help with food shopping from the municipal home-help service. The majority of married men were eating food cooked by their spouse, but some men were also involved in cooking. Single-living men mostly managed cooking independently, but disabled single-living men received help from a home-helper.
