Abstract [en]

This thesis researches the need for increased social engagement among isolated elderly population receiving home care service in Sweden. The notion of ‘social engagement’ and how to stimulate it is a central point throughout the work. The author nds that the isolation issue is related to political factors, sustainability and Swedish culture and how they interact with the individual. The theoretical framework is comprised of the eld of care science and theories regarding isolation and sense of community.

Using such empirical research and more in-depth own research such as interviews, the author concludes that social isolation is, in fact, a problem. The answer or suggested solution to this problem takes the shape of a design proposal: Play, Share, Connect, Repeat.

Play, Share, Connect, Repeat is a game introduced by home care service that aims to create bonds and stimulate social engagement between care receivers.
