Development of value-integrating and sustainable models for elderly care

The projects include interdisciplinary collaboration in the field of ageing, health and social care concerning homebased care of elderly, i.e. the interfaces between health and social care. The study focus on the innovation and development of sustainable and value-integrating models of elderly care in Sweden and India with the aim to explore and develop models that are integrating user-perspectives with societal and organizational values and preconditions. The project is designed in four steps: What kind of value-based dilemmas are experienced by managers of elderly care and HCWs in their work and during their work with improvements of elderly care? What are the contemporary models which are successful and which have failed in terms of value-integration in the specific socio-cultural contexts? What contemporary models are needed which addresses to the cultural and contextual needs of older persons? What are the key-components for capacity-building (learning and developing) elderly care models through research-supported learning networks and seminars? Also how are these questions associated with the person/family and contextual living-conditions, user-influence, working-conditions, organizational preconditions and sustainability? The project have an explorative design with close to practice research approach. The overall goal for developing value-integrated elderly care is to support models and skill development that are promoting capability of older people and sustainable conditions for society, workers, relative care givers and managers.
