    Using The Experience Sampling Method in Gerontological Social Work1998In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 0163-4372, E-ISSN 1540-4048, Vol. 30, no 3/4, p. 183-189Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines some advantages and drawbacks of using Experience Sampling Method(ESM)for the study of gerontological social work and other related fields of social and health services. ESM typically requires participants to respond to signals from electronic pagers at randomly determined intervals. In response to these, participants are expected to fill out a short self-report about their activities, as well as of their thoughts and feelings of these activities. ESM is, compared to conventional methods of obserevation (when people know that they are being studied and may behave differently from normal), a rather unobtrosive method, and ESM-data does not, unlike conventional survey-data, rely on retrospective information.

    Caring while living apart2007In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 0163-4372, E-ISSN 1540-4048, Vol. 49, no 4, p. 3-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, researchers have paid increasing attention to die issue of care in die new types of family and partner relationships. The aim of this study is to examine expectations and attitudes concerning care among elderly people in LAT (Living Apart Togetiier)- relationships in Sweden, that is, people who have a long-term intimate relationship, but who do not share a common home. Questionnaires were completed by 116 elderly people in LAT-relationships. Partners are ranked as the main providers of care, especially by men, but mere is considerable variation in die answers. This seems to be principally related to the degree of flexibility in this type of relationship. Some individuals see a LAT-relationship as a marriage-like relationship, while others see it primarily as a type of relationship that guarantees them the possibility of maintaining their own independent way of life.

    Direct and Indirect Support for Carers: patterns of Support for Informal Caregivers to Elderly People in Sweden2002In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 0163-4372, E-ISSN 1540-4048, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 67-84Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines what support services are offered to informal caregivers and whether the support is aimed directly or indirectly at the caters. Data were collected by means of two mail questionnaires in a Swedish county. The first questionnaire was aimed at each municipality in the region. The second questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 284 voluntary organizations in the region. Only the municipalities proved to have relief services, day care centers and two forms of payment for carers. The voluntary organizations' support for carers was focused on support groups and training as well as services for elderly care recipients. The results indicated that the support services for carers were both direct and indirect and that the municipalities and the voluntary organizations largely offer different kinds of support.
