    Longevity, social work and social innovations: a Swedish example2012In: Mykolas Romeris University: Research papers : Societal Innovations for Global Growth, ISSN 2335-2450, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 739-748Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The challenges of increasing longevity in the world’s population are fairly known. What is less recognized is that this involves cultural as well as a demographic phenomenon. The aim of this paper is to relate this to the field of social gerontology. A long research tradition in the field of gerontology has related social integration - participation in multiple life roles and activities and access to social support in times of need - to good health and well-being among older people. Conversely, social isolation, or the lack of access to social support and the lack of meaningful social relationships, roles, and activities, is related to poor health and lower well-being. A wide range of health care and representatives of the social services have engaged in promoting social integration of older adults. However only a limited number of scientific studies have been able to prove the effectiveness of the interventions designed to mitigate social isolation. Preemptive interventions seem to be far less common. The social capital contained within older populations is a considerable resource that lies largely unused and, as such, exemplifies a societal failure to adapt to changing circumstances. This leads us to the field of Elderpedagogy as a social innovation. In Sweden we are presently witnessing the development of new ways of work with elderly. These ambitions are based on the acknowledgement of the changing needs and demands following longevity. Elderpedagogy is a newly founded educational program at the University of Malmö. The main goals of Elderpedagogy is preemptive social interventions, new forms of work together with older persons and their networks. Some tried and tested methods of social intervention methods fits well into the scientific context of Elderpedagogy as a discipline on the borderline of social work and pedagogy. Elderpedagogy constitutes an example of how care and social services can establish adaptive interventional methods that have proven to be effective. By connecting traditional ways of social work with older adults and new ways of placing these in a world of changing conditions for longevity, educational programs as Elderpedagogy can contribute to sustainable intergenerational relations.

    RReshaping eldercare towards new professions2014In: Social work, ISSN 2029-2775, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 179-191Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The impacts of global longevity are commonly regarded as a threat to future social policy systems and structure of future welfare organizations. Focusing future needs of older adults social gerontologists have long since recognized the importance of different types of socially interventional aspects. The methods used in this article are based on a survey of scientific literature on some central topics related to social gerontology. The main object is to discuss how these may be imbedded in rethinking future Swedish eldercare. Challenges and needs of longevity in Sweden have been met with the efforts of reshaping eldercare through new aspects of training and education. The article draws attention to the educational program of elderpedagogy at the University of Malmö. The main goal of elderpedagogy is to comprehend the assets of social capital and social experiences of old adults, in order to reduce social isolation. The scientific soil of elderpedagogy is made of influences from traditional social gerontology as well as social pedagogy. Despite its ambitions and well proven innovative potentials elderpedagogy faces difficulties in recruiting students. The obstacles are well known in an international context where similar educational programs within social work focusing the social dilemmas of older adults, share the fate of having to cope with ageist discursive attitudes towards later life.

    Uformel omsorg og pleje for aeldre invandrere - holdninger og strategier2017In: Gerontologi, ISSN 1604-8644, Vol. 33, no 1, p. 6-10Article, review/survey (Other academic)
    Abstract [da]

    I internationella forskningssammanhang är kunskapen om omsorgsgivare med utländsk bakgrund generellt sett mager. Flera forskningsrön pekar på att den samlade kunskapen till stor del bygger på antaganden snarare än empiriska belägg. Sammantaget visar dock forskningen att skillnader mellan anhöriga med utländskt ursprung och majoritetsbefolkning när det gäller strategier och organiseringen av anhörigomsorg är betydligt mindre än vad som ofta antas. Den tydligaste skiljelinjen består i att omsorgsgivare tillhörande en majoritetskultur tycks vända sig till den offentliga omsorgen medan utlandsfödda oftare står utanför den samma. Orsakerna till detta utanförskap söks ofta kulturspecifika spörsmål, men även språkkunskaper. Dessutom har man på senare år i allt större utsträckning sökt svar i utlandsfödda eller minoritetsgruppers socioekonomiska situation som inte sällan karakteriseras av utsatthet. Här blir då varken ras, kultur eller etnicitet till de självklara förklaringsfaktorer som man ofta återkommit till. Den uppgift som föreligger handlar snarast om att ta utgångspunkt i faktorer som kön, socioekonomisk ställning och självfallet omsorgsmottagarens rent kroppsliga behov. Till syvende och sist kan vi dock konstatera att temat informell omsorg och etnicitet hittills är lite belyst i forskningen och frågetecknen är flera. Inte minst rör det sig om förklaringsmodeller som vilar på relativt lättvindiga premisser.

    Äldreomsorg och åldrande: från anhörigskap till krisberedskap2018Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att världens befolkning är i åldrande är känt sedan länge. Att denna ökning av äldre kommer att få konsekvenser för vård och omsorg anses vara självklart. Denna bok har som utgångspunkt att konkretisera några av de teman som ryms inom detta fält. Läsaren får inblick i arbetslivsrelaterade teman inom äldreomsorgens organisation och rekryteringsbas, anhörigskap, krisberedskap, internationella jämförelser inom äldreomsorgen, samt omsorg och etnicitet. Boken ger även insyn i hur äldre förhåller sig till samhälleliga normer och föreställningar om åldrandet. Till detta kommer till slut frågan om utvecklandet av nya professioner inom äldreområdet, vilket ska ses mot bakgrund av de delvis annorlunda behov som framtidens äldre förväntas ha.

    Abstract [en]

    This article aims at studying how a number of late-in-life Iranian female migrants relate their everyday life witj improvised day-center activities,organozed by an Iranian-Swedish association in Malmö. Their narratives of loneliness, faltering nhealth and urging for integration in Swedish society, reflect and image that contrast the common generalizing assumptions of elderly migrants as passive bearers of cultural characteristics

    Drömmen om dagcentralen. Omsorgsformer och språk bland utlandsfödda äldre i Malmö2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Summary This report consists of three separate texts: Dreaming of the daycentre by Finnur Magnússon, Primarily a good house by Tor Löfgren and Old immigrants with language problem by Kristina Hjelm. The articles of Hjelm Löfgren are reedited versions of their candidate degree essays in Social work at the university of Malmö. The report follows two thematic main paths often occurring in the research on the life conditions of old migrants; the question of residential and care forms, versus the importance of language within eldercare. Recently the discussion of ethnically specified residential setting has focused different kind of daycentres whose activities are adapted to the needs of old migrant groups. The activities of these organizations have gradually been getting the characters of being ”open houses” addressing their activities towards persons whose needs are social rather than medical. The point of departure is a local action in order to establish a daycentre for Persian speaking old migrants in Malmö – Iranians and Afghans. The report focuses the actions and steps taken by different actors such as civil servants, representatives of a local migrants association involved in the daycentre project, as well as representatives of aged Persian speaking migrants in Malmö. The report’s main ambition is not to highlight the process of establishing a daycentre itself. We rather focus on the questions such a process may raise and what implications it may have. Furthermore the report focuses the issue of the low representation of migrants within Swedish eldercare and the issue of language may be one of its causes. The idea of ethnically based solutions in Swedish eldercare can be seen from different angles. According to tradition the welfare society has dealt with the needs of aged citizens. The emergence of hitherto new groups within the care comes as a challenge. Individuals with habits and most of all: speaking different languages are now standing on the doorstep of the care apparatus and sometimes feeling that they are not let in. However the findings of the reports show that some of the old migrants by different reasons choose to place themselves outside the care system. Taking into account the findings of the texts in the report one can state that daycentres are important and in many cases they satisfy the social needs and demands of many old migrants. A daycentre offers the possibility of meeting others and thereby breaking negative social isolation. Another and perhaps most important part of our findings is the complexity of ethnic care solutions which sometimes tends to be neglected. Ethnic care solutions touch upon the issue of democracy, necessary care based priorities, the integration of non-Swedes as well as the crucial connection between care and communication and language.

    Caresam: åldrande och utmaningar i Öresundsregionen - att arbeta med ældre i Sverige och Danmark2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology is part of the CareSam project, which focuses on the elderly sector in Sweden and Denmark and is financed by the EU-Interreg I VA. The purpose of this project is to establish a CareSam network in the Øresund region. This network will bring together interest groups in order to create in-service training, identify opportunities for cooperation, and provide a two-way knowledge transfer within the region. The project will make substantial and transparent contributions to the development of quality assessment for public-sector elderly care in the region. Even though there are many similarities between Sweden and Denmark, there is significant potential for knowledge transfer within the elderly sector – Sweden and Denmark have different traditions when it comes to client influence, education systems, service and attitudes. CareSam is a cooperative initiative between Malmö University, Sweden (www.mah.se) and Roskilde University, Denmark (www.ruc.dk), as well as Scania´s Association of Local Authorities, Sweden (www.kfsk.se) and Metropol College, Denmark (www.phmetropol.dk). The project content includes theoretical inputs, evaluation and process work. The goals of the project are to strengthen the day-to-day integration of the elderly sector in the Øresund region, to establish a functional network, and to promote knowledge acquisition in the following areas:

    • Cultural knowledge and the future of elderly care in the Øresund region

    • Education in the elderly sector

    • Dementia in the elderly and its impact on staff
