 Unequal resource allocation of social support within elderly care. : A quantitative analysis of social support in relative to nursing and rationing in relation to age, gender and marital status within the home care services in the municipality of Karlskrona. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this quantitative study was to statistically test empirical knowledge that supports the idea of the existence of restrictive rationing and inequality in the distribution of resources for social support by variables of age, gender, marital status and number of nursing hours in the home care system. The material was obtained from internal records from the municipality of Karlskrona which constituted a population study, with which we performed regression analyzes to test the effect of the variables age and nursing hours on the variables escorting hours and  hours for social activation. An independent samples t-test were made to reveal any differences in mean values between the sexes, and a One way Anova analysis was made to check for differences of variance between each marital status. We found that men was rationed less hours of social support than women, that age had a positive effect on hours for social activation but a negative effect on escorting hours, that nursing hours had a positive effect on hours of social support and that there was a difference in mean hours of social activation between the married and the widowed, in the laters favour. We conclude that there is a restrictive practice in the home care system and that there is a difference in distribution between social categories, though it is not an unjust distribution of social support but rather an outcome of husbanding resources that points towards fairness, but we can recognize elderly of good health to be categories of attention as our analysis shows that they are are at risk to be overlooked.
