Gamla och nya frivillighetsformer: Äldreomsorgshybrider växer fram

Abstract [en]

The interest for voluntary services in elderly care has increased in

recent years and some have claimed that new types have emerged

within the field. What’s new with these types of services? This

licentiate dissertation focuses on the relationship between voluntary

services and local authority elderly care in Sweden. In order to

understand the transition from the old to the new types of voluntary

services the use of an historic perspective is essential. An analysis of this relationship and the characteristics of those newer types of voluntary services that have emerged were carried out utilizing text analyses of official government reports. The study also focuses on the role of the government, how the dividing line between voluntary organizations and local authority elderly care has been negotiated and thus moved over time.

The results show that services such as social support to the elderly

are in the process of being transferred from some of the local

authority organizations to special elderly care hybrid organizations.

These are run by local authority employees whose assignment is to

organize and recruit members from both voluntary organizations in

the social field and from volunteers who do not belong to these

voluntary organizations. Social support services to the elderly thus

tend to develop their own organizational frameworks. Furthermore

the results show that the government has great expectations for the

healthy elderly to contribute to the care of their peers in need of

support. These expectations are based on a perception that the

healthy elderly should take responsibility for their ageing and a

conception about them risking becoming lonely and ill if they do not

contribute by helping other elderly persons.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport handlar om sociala frivilligorganisationer och äldreomsorg. Studien bygger på statligt offentligt utredningsmaterial, i huvudsak från 1950-talet fram till och med början av 2000-talet.

Syftet är att förstå relationen mellan sociala frivilligorganisationer och kommunal äldreomsorg genom att dels studera statens ambitioner och idéer, dels hur organisationerna har samverkat över tid. Särskild uppmärksamhet ägnas åt vad som kännetecknar de nya frivillighetsformer som växer fram inom dagens äldreomsorg.

Mairon Johansson är fil. mag. och lärare i socialt arbete vid Växjö universitet. Detta är hennes licentiatavhandling i socialt arbete.
