Title Mat för äldre på särskilt boende

English abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to examine how the elderly people experience the food on a sheltered accommodation. We will examine nutrition in the food and if the elderly people have an influence on food they gets everyday. The aim of this study was to examine older persons’ everyday experiences of food within the context of homes for the elderly. More specifically, nutrition and the personal experiences of influence concerning choice of food were examined. The study was performed by means of a qualitative approach involving interviews with both personnel and elderly persons themselves within two homes for the elderly, both located in the same city in southern Sweden. The results of this study indicate that elderly persons tend to experience less influence on the everyday choice of food. However, this is partly contradicted by the personnel concerning their explicit involvement of the elderly when composing weekly menus.
