Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVES: As part of the process of de-institutionalization in the Swedish mental healthcare system, a reform was implemented in 1995, moving the responsibility for services and social support for people with severe mental illness (SMI) from the regional level to the municipalities. In many ways, older people with SMI were neglected in this changing landscape of psychiatric care. The aim of this study is to investigate functional levels, living conditions, need of support in daily life, and how these aspects changed over time for older people with SMI.

METHODS: In this study we used data from surveys collected in 1996, 2001, 2006, and 2011 and data from national registers. A group of older adults with severe persistent mental illness (SMI-O:P) was identified and divided into those who experienced shorter stays (less than 3 years) in a mental hospital (N = 118) and longer stays (N = 117).

RESULTS: After correcting for longitudinal changes with age, the longer-stay group was more likely than the shorter-stay group to experience functional difficulties and as a result, were more likely to have experienced "re-institutionalization" to another care setting, as opposed to living independently.

CONCLUSIONS: The length of mental illness hospitalization has significant effects on the living conditions of older people with SMI and their ability to participate in social life. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

The article illuminates and discusses the realism of policy-makers' goals to increase involvement of volunteers and informal caregivers in long-term care services in Norway. Drawing on multiple data sources, the article investigates how commonplace volunteering and informal care are in long-term care, and it explores challenges experienced in collaboration between formal caregivers and volunteers and informal caregivers. The results show that only 4.4 percent of the Norwegian population carry out unpaid, voluntary work in long-term care. Twenty percent regularly provide informal care to someone with special care needs. Knowledge/information gaps and lacking coordination are common collaboration challenges between formal caregivers and volunteers/informal caregivers. The limitations identified in the current collaboration environment should be used actively by both policy makers and the practice field to critically assess goals and strategies for involvement and improving collaboration practices.

Abstract [sv]

Anhörigomsorg är i Sverige vanlig och möjligen ökande. Med tre undersökningar över tio år med befolkningsdata om omsorgsgivande beskriver vi detta och hur olika omsorgskällor överlappar för mottagaren. Huvudintrycket är att de ofta får flera olika slag av omsorg – huvudsakligen från släkt och offentlig omsorg – sett från givarens horisont. Undantaget är de som vårdar partner eller annan i det egna hushållet, den enda grupp som ofta står ensam och som ger omfattande omsorg. De utgör dock en liten grupp av alla omsorgsgivare. Vi kritiserar förenklande demografiska resonemang om minskande potential för anhörigomsorg.

Abstract [en]

Family care in Sweden is extensive and possibly expanding. We use representative surveys with caregivers to describe panoramas of care for different recipients. Various types of care often overlap: Other family are the most frequent auxiliary carers, but there is also rather big overlap with public services, and especially for help to someone with extensive needs in another household. Partner carers and others who care for someone in their own household – often for many hours – stand out as a rather isolated but comparatively small group. The article also criticises oversimplified use of demography which suggests a weakened potential for family care.
