Sammanfattning

Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur enhetschefer inom äldreomsorgen resonerar kring begreppet värdighet hos äldre personer som bor på särskilt boende, samt hur de ser till att deras personal omsätter värdighet i det praktiska arbetet. Värdighetsbegreppet diskuteras främst i förhållande till komponenterna bemötande och självbestämmande. Studien genomfördes med en kvalitativ forskningsmetod i form av semisstrukturerade intervjuer med fem enhetschefer inom äldreomsorgen. I analysen användes fyra olika teorier om värdighet, nämligen (I) meritvärdighet, (II) värdighet som moralisk resning, (III) identitetsvärdighet samt (IV) människovärde. Studien visar att begreppet värdighet rymmer en mängd olika beståndsdelar enligt enhetschefer för äldreomsorgen. Bland annat nämns individualitet, god omvårdnad, respektfullhet och gott bemötande som viktiga delar av värdigheten. Enhetschefer inom äldreomsorgen lägger också mycket vikt vid sin personal och huruvida de uppfyller dessa komponenter i sitt praktiska arbete kring äldre. Studien indikerar även att begreppet identitetsvärdighet bör uppmärksammas och lämnas mer utrymme inom verksamheter som rör äldre.
