    Aging in Sweden: Local variation, local control2014In: The Gerontologist, ISSN 0016-9013, E-ISSN 1758-5341, Vol. 54, no 4, p. 525-532Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aging in Sweden has been uniquely shaped by its history—most notably the long tradition of locally controlled services for older adults. We considered how local variations and local control shape the experience of aging in Sweden and organized the paper into 3 sections. First, we examine aging in Sweden along demography, economy, and housing. Next, we trace the origins and development of the Swedish welfare state to consider formal supports (service provision) and informal supports (caregiving and receipt of care). Finally, we direct researchers to additional data resources for understanding aging in Sweden in greater depth. Sweden was one of the first countries to experience rapid population aging. Quality of life for a majority of older Swedes is high. Local control permits a flexible and adaptive set of services and programs, where emphasis is placed on improving the quality and targeting of services that have already reached a plateau as a function of population and expenditures.

    Factors associated with hospitalization among older people in Sweden: Results from the Satsa Study2015In: The Gerontologist, ISSN 0016-9013, E-ISSN 1758-5341, Vol. 55, p. 678-679Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Hospitalization among older people is common and associated with risk of adverse outcomes such as iatrogenic disorders and physical impairments. Knowledge about personal characteristics and social factors related to hospitalization is scarce. In order to understand which factors that are related to hospitalization risk, a prospective study with a multifactorial approach was conducted.

    Methods: In 2003, 794 Swedish persons (mean age 70.1 years, 60.7% females) answered a postal questionnaire as a part of the population-based longitudinal Swedish Adoption/Twin Study of Aging (SATSA). Participants were asked about physiological and psychological health, personality and socio economic factors. During seven years of follow-up, information on hospitalizations and the associated diagnoses were obtained from the Swedish National Inpatient Register.

    Results: Preliminary results show that 484 persons (61.0%) had at least one hospital admission during the follow-up period. The most common causes of admission were cardiovascular diseases and tumors. Cox proportional hazard regression model controlling for age, sex and dependency within twin pairs, showed that higher locus of control (HR=0.89, 95% CI=0.83-0.96), marital status (widow/widower (HR=0.64, 95 % CI=0.50-0.81) and unmarried (HR=0.67, 95% CI=0.50-0.90)), and support from friends (HR=0.93, 95% CI=0.87-0.99) were associated with lower risk of hospitalization, while greater numbers of diseases (HR=1.11, 95% CI=1.03-1.20) and negative life events (HR=1.16, 95%  CI=1.00-1.34) were associated with increased risk of hospitalization.

    Discussion: Our results show that both personal and social factors were important for the risk of hospitalization. This might be used in future interventions for understanding health care utilization.

    Spotlight on Scotland: Assets and opportunities for aging research in a shifting sociopolitical landscape2016In: The Gerontologist, ISSN 0016-9013, E-ISSN 1758-5341, Vol. 56, no 6, p. 979-989Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Scotland is a small nation, yet it leads the field in key areas of aging research. With the creation of a devolved government with authority over health and social services, the country has witnessed practice and policy developments that offer distinctive opportunities for innovative research. With multidisciplinary groups of internationally recognized researchers, Scotland is able to take advantage of a unique set of opportunities for aging research: a well-profiled population brings opportunities in population data and linkage to understand people’s interactions with health, social care, and other public services; while research on technology and telecare is a distinctive area where Scotland is recognized internationally for using technology to develop effective, high-quality and well-accepted services at relatively low financial cost. The paper also considers free personal care for older people and the national dementia strategy in Scotland. The potential to evaluate the impact of free personal care will provide valuable information for other global health and social care systems. Exploring the impact of the national dementia strategy is another unique area of research that can advance understanding in relation to quality of life and the development of services. The paper concludes that, while Scotland benefits from unique opportunities for progressive public policy and innovative aging research that will provide valuable lessons at the forefront of a globally aging population, the challenges associated with an aging population and increasing cultural diversity must be acknowledged and addressed to ensure that the vision of equality and social justice for all is realized.

    The Shifting Balance of Long-Term Care in Sweden2002In: The Gerontologist, ISSN 0016-9013, E-ISSN 1758-5341, Vol. 42, no 3, p. 350-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This study describes the Swedish debate on the role of family and state in care of elderly persons. It provides empirical evidence on the shifting balance of family, state, and market in the total panorama of elderly care. Design and Methods: Secondary analysis of older (1954) and more recent data sources (1994 and 2000) is used to assess living arrangements and care patterns for persons 75 years or older living in the community. Results: Total spending on aged adults has stagnated, and institutional care is shrinking in absolute and relative terms, but public Home Help for elders in the community is decreasing even more. Family members increasingly shoulder the bulk of care, but privately purchased care also seems to expand. This study calculates how public and informal care changed between 1994 and 2000: Informal care is estimated to have provided 60% of all care to elders in the community in 1994 and 70% in 2000. Implications: The results parallel a crisis of legitimacy of public elderly care in Sweden. They also call into question various metaphors used to describe patterns of care.
