The cooked frog : A qualitative study on the application of family support in three Swedish municipalities. (English)
Abstract [en]

Since 2010, Swedish municipalities have been required by law to provide support for relatives and family members. The purpose of this study is to understand how three municipalities in Sweden have chosen to implement and design their support for family members and relatives, as previous research shows that the support varies widely between municipalities. This study is qualitative and we have interviewed eight officials who somehow work with relatives and family members in the municipality's activities. Our findings show that the interviewees' experience is that relatives and family members of close relatives with some form of nursing need are often burned out, suffer from high mental stress and make high demands on themselves. The results also show that the municipalities have chosen to prioritize the support to a different extent, and that the support for relatives and family members of the elderly has a longer tradition than the support offered to other family categories.
