May I ask a stupid question - older immigrant, what does it mean : A qualitative study about home care professionals´ social construction of older immigrants (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to understand how home care professionals construct older immigrants. The study was conducted by a social constructional perspective. The study consists of focus group interviews with three different home care groups. The data was analysed by using the theoretical concepts Categorizing and Making of the Others. The results of this study shows that the home care professionals are categorizing older immigrants as different from older Swedes, and therefore making older immigrants as the others. Besides mentioned social construction of older immigrants, we found that there were contradictions when the home care professionals made a reasoning that did not make older immigrants as the others. In this case they did not find the category older immigrants meaningful and useful, because they expressed that their needs were no different from elderly people in general.
