English abstract
A QUALITATIVE STUDY ON THE EXPERIENCE OF ESCORT SERVICE UNDER THE ACT (SFS 1993:387) SUPPORT AND SERVICE FOR THE DISABLED The purpose of this study was to examine the experiences of escort service under the Act (SFS 1993:387) concerning Support and Service for the disabled (LSS) for self-determination, participation and equality of living conditions. In the results of this study appears that the escort service fulfills its role in breaking the isolation of persons with disabilities. It gives a picture of the escort service is much more than to break the isolation of people with disabilities. The aspects that emerges is that escort service gives persons with disabilities the opportunity to develop their independence, increase their self-esteem and broaden their frames of reference through increased participation in community life. All users report that they experience autonomy in the choice and order of activities within their grant initiatives. The result reveals that even the escorts feel that the users have the option to be able to determine their choice of activities. When it comes to concepts of self-determination, participation and equality of living conditions there is a certain ambiguity regarding the individual's definition of the various concepts as they can be experienced and perceived differently by different individuals. This makes it difficult to draw definitive conclusions about experience of escort service. Nyckelord: Delaktighet, Funktionshinder, Jämlikhet i levnadsvillkor, Ledsagarservice, Självbestämmande.
