    A long life with a particular signature: life course and aging for people with disabilities.2012In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 1540-4048, Vol. 55, no 2, p. 95-111Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What does it mean to live a long life and grow old with disabilities? Or to be an aging parent and still be a caregiver to a disabled adult child? These are questions discussed in this article, the aim of which is to show how a life course perspective adds insight to the lived experience of disability and ageing of adults with disabilities. It is argued that the time concept is fundamental to the understanding of the lives of disabled people. Results are presented which challenge established knowledge regarding disability policies, autonomy, body, biographical disruption and prerequisites of active aging.

    Ett långt liv med särskilda förtecken: Livslopp och åldrande hos människor med funktionsnedsättningar2011In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 107-125Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad innebär det att åldras med funktionsnedsättningar som man fått redan i tidig ålder eller som yngre vuxen? På vilket sätt formar funktionshinder livet över tid? Och hur är det att vara en till åren kommen förälder och fortfarande vara central som hjälpgivare till ett vuxet, funktionshindrat barn? Vilken betydelse har epoken och reformerna? I artikeln diskuteras dessa frågor med utgångspunkt i ett brett upplagt forskningsprojekt ”Funktionshinder, livslopp och åldrande”

    Divergent Logics of Spiritual Care: End of Life and the Role of the Church of Sweden2009In: Journal of Religion, Spirituality & Aging, ISSN 1552-8030, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 344-360Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the role of the Church of Sweden in spiritual care for parishioners in their end-of-life phase. The frame of reference is a new geography of dying that implies that a majority of Swedes today, particularly older people, die in their local neighborhood of belonging, in fact in their parishes. Findings from a study of all parishes in two Swedish communities are presented that indicate support for dying parishioners is surprisingly uncommon, although most parishes offer support for the bereaved. A possible interpretation of these contrasting patterns is discussed. The findings indicate that divergent forms of care logic motivated the different types of support offered by the Church. Long-standing relationships with aging parishioners seemed to be at the heart of the matter.

    End of life and dimensions of civil society: the Church of Sweden in a new geography of death2007In: Mortality, ISSN 1357-6275, E-ISSN 1469-9885, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 261-280Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past 10 - 15 years the geography of death has changed in Sweden. Dying and end-of-life care has to a great extent been moved out of hospitals back into the local community, and renewed attention is given to dying and spiritual care issues. Yet, at the same time, a new ideological investment in civil society has taken place, which ascribes caring and networking qualities and resources that may not always be encountered in practice. This article discusses the implications of this situation, by focusing on the role of the Church of Sweden, as an actor in civil society, and on its support for parishioners in their end-of-life phase. Questions discussed are: what role do local church parishes play in the care of dying parishioners, and what is the meaning of parish belonging and networks in this context? Results from a study of all parishes in two Swedish, medium-sized, communities indicate that support for dying parishioners is surprisingly uncommon, while most parishes offer support for the bereaved. The article argues that this may be an indication of failing resources, on the part of the parishes, to meet the needs of these contrasting situations. While a relational logic motivates support for the dying parishioner, support for the bereaved seems to follow a service logic, one with which the representatives of the parishes are more at ease. Networks and personal relationships seemed to be the heart of the matter and the concept of social capital was used to capture this phenomenon. In a more general sense, however, the results illustrate the partly contradictory roles and strategies that the Church has adopted in order to face different interpretations of civil society and ongoing societal change in Sweden.

    With or without faith: spiritual care in the church of Sweden at a time of transition2006In: Omega: Journal of Death & Dying, ISSN 0030-2228, Vol. 53, no 1/2, p. 153-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article describes spiritual care offered by the Church of Sweden to people in the last phase of their lives and to the bereaved. The Church ministers in a secularized society. Its changed place in the culture can be seen in the fact that it was recently officially separated from the State. The article contrasts the languages of spiritual care about the support given to those in their last phase of life, compared to those in grief. Traditional theological language is used with the dying, while the newer psychological "clinical lore" is used with the bereaved. These contrasts are expressions of the different positions linked to expectations that are connected with roles that the representatives of the Church are trying to meet.

    Family involvement in the institutional eldercare context: towards a new understanding2009In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 158-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on family involvement and its various patterns and expressions in the context of end-of-life care in a nursing home. Based on analyses from an ethnographic study carried out at a nursing home ward, the aim is to describe and analyze the conditions of aging and dying for the old residents, as well as effects on their visiting families and relatives. As in similar research findings, it became clear from the study that families continue to visit and contribute to the care of the old resident throughout the years, from the time of placement to their demise, but that this involvement might vary both in content and in extent. However, it was found that families'' involvement (as well as their changing relationships and roles) is particularly shaped by the very process of dying and lingering aura of death on the ward. The analysis presented in the article evinces the difficult — and in many ways impossible — role of the family in the institutional end-of-life setting, and discloses the various patterns and manifestations of family involvement in this environment. Different meanings and implications of family involvement are discussed and highlighted.

    The body as existential midpoint—the aging and dying body of nursing home residents2010In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 96-104Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The human body has been the object of extensive attention in the social sciences, recently receiving increasing interest from social gerontology as well. However, the issue of old bodies and particularly the body in the fourth age of life remains relatively under-researched. The need to give emphasis to the subjective experiences of the oldest old during their final phase of life has been pointed out. This article is based on data obtained from ethnographic fieldwork carried out on a nursing home ward, and explores and analyses how the residents talk about and regard their own aging and dying bodies. The focus is on the link between the disintegrating body, aging and death in an institution-based care context. It was found that the body is the central entity through which the residents experience daily life, through pain, through the caring process, through diminished physical and cognitive functions, and as such constitutes the existential nucleus of their being. The article includes a discussion on how these experiences also elucidate the way in which the body is a mediator for issues seldom acknowledged such as existential needs.
