Title Att behålla hjärna och kropp igång vid åldrandet - Vårdpersonals syn på aktivitet på särskilda boenden
Author(s) Erlandsson, Anna ; Greitans, Sofie

English abstract
The purpose of this study is to examine how activities are looked upon, organized and put into practice at homes designed for the elderly. To achieve this we have done a survey study, based upon the caregiver´s point of view regarding the subject activity. The result of this study has been interpreted and analyzed with help from the engagement- and disengagement theories. The result shows us that the caregiver´s find the term activity slightly abstract, and rather difficult to define. All of the caregiver´s did agree on the matter that it’s good to activate elderly people and that the elderly people are activated at a large extent. The result also shows us that it’s not always the elderly people’s own wishes and desires of activity that gets organized and put into practice at homes designed for the elderly. In conclusion we find the engagement theory to be very dominant in the thoughts and actions of caregiver´s in Swedish geriatric care, rather than the disengagement theories.
