Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att få en förståelse för hur situationerna för äldre i hemlösa situationer kan se ut samt bidragande orsaker till varför de blir kvar i hemlösheten. För att uppfylla syftet har kvalitativa intervjuer genomförts med organisationer som kommer i kontakt med de äldre i hemlösa situationer. Utifrån deras erfarenheter har det gått att urskilja teman som beskriver den rådande situationen för de äldre i hemlöshet utifrån bidragande orsaker och tillvaron i den hemlösa situationen. Temana beskriver bland annat hur de äldre exkluderas från olika hjälpinsatser och hur det, vi benämner som, slitsamma livet kan se ut men också förslag på förebyggande åtgärder. Temana tolkades utifrån en individuell, en strukturell perspektiv, samt normer, normalisering och kategorisering. Studiens slutsats belyser vikten av vidare studier inom området, specifikt i relation till den biologiska ålderns betydelse i relation till det sociala stödsystemets kategoriseringar. Det är även av vikt att studera förekomsten av skillnader mellan långvarig och kortvarig tid i att vara äldre i en hemlös situation. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to develop a thorough understanding of the representation of homeless older people and an insight into contributing factors as to why they remain homeless. To meet the purpose of the study, qualitative interviews have been conducted with organizations that come into contact with older people in homeless situations. Themes have been identified based on the experiences that describe the current situation of the elderly in homeless situations including the contributing factors and the amount of time spent in homelessness. The themes detail how the elderly are excluded from various relief efforts and how the backbreaking life can be, and also suggestions for homelessness preventive measures. These themes were interpreted on an individual basis and a structural approach and standards, normalization, and categorization. The study's conclusion highlights the importance of further study in this area, specifically in relation to the biological age significance in relation to the social support system categorizations. Another important factor is to study the differences between long and short-term homelessness in older people.
