Abstract [en]

Background: In order to maintain good health in old age, a comprehensive perspective including both health promotion and risk prevention is crucial. Preventive home visit is one intervention with the purpose to prevent risks and promote health among older persons. Support and advice given during the preventive home visit needs to be tailored towards the older person’s needs. In order to give advice and support that is targeting older persons prerequisites there is a need for more research about how older persons experience support and advice given during a preventive home visit. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore older person’s experiences of the gains from the support and advice given in a preventive home visit program developed in collaboration between several municipalities, a county council and researchers.

Method: Individual semi-structured interviews were conducted with 13 older persons, mean age 79 years old, living at home who had received a preventive home visit. The interviews were analysed with content analysis.

Findings: The overarching preliminary theme Being empowered and recognised as a person reviled the participants feeling of that the support and advice given encountered all aspects of health and the whole person. The support and advice generated conditions for the person to be empowered by contributing to a feeling of control and preparedness for the future. Further the support and advice given contributed to a feeling of being recognised when health, behaviour and the surrounding environment were assessed.

Conclusion: Being empowered and recognised as a person might be central gains from the support and advice given during the preventive home visits, which enables good health among older persons.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Social participation  can have a positive  impact  on  health; however, physical challenges  can be hindrances. During a preventive  home  visit a health  professional (visitor) assesses different aspects of  physical,  mental and social health. However,  there might  be a challenge  for the  visitor  to discover  the interrelationship  between physical  factors that hinder social  participation. Therefore,  the aim  of this  study was, in  the context  of preventive  home visits, to identify  physical  factors which  can hinder  older  persons from taking  part in  social contexts.  Methods: Cross-sectional  register  data from  preventive  home  visits  to older  persons (n=1,245, ≥77 years old,  without  home care) was used. Data was collected during a period of 17 months, in  seven Swedish  municipalities. Logistic  regression  was used to analyse  the association between physical factors and the item physical problems hindering social participation. Results: The mean age was 78.8  (standard  deviation 1.8 years), and 55% were women. The physical  factors significantly  associated with  physical  problems  hindering  taking  part in  social contexts were: having urinary  incontinence (women  only),  having  pain,  impaired  endurance and using  a mobility  device.  Conclusions: This study  provides  insights  into  how to  make the best use of  the questions asked during preventive  home  visits, in  order to enable  older  persons to  take part in  social contexts. The  results recognise  the importance  of taking  into  account physical  challenges  to be able  to support  social  participation. Furthermore, considering physical challenges for social participation on both  an individual  and  a societal  level  might  reduce inequalities  among  older persons.

Abstract [en]

In the sustainable development goals for 2030 the emphasis is on health promotion to enable healthy lives and wellbeing for all. Health promotion from an individual perspective focus on enabling the person to take control and improve health, by focusing on positive health related resources. Health promotion can be applied to older persons during a preventive home visit (PHV). Most of the studies made on PHVs to older persons have focused on risk factors. Suggestions for improvement of the PHV would be to add recommendations that promote health related resources, not only look at risk factors. In order to develop health promotion for older persons there is a need for research about positive health related resources. Therefore this study aim for exploring health related resources that could be found among older persons that have received a PHV.

Methods: A cross-sectional study design was used including older persons age ≥75 years old, living in their own homes, and that had received PHV. Data were collected during a period of nine months, in two municipalities in the south of Sweden. Questions covered wellbeing, nutrition, physical health, functional ability, housing and economy. Binary logistic regression was used to analyse data.

Results: In total 625 older persons were included in the study, 55.4 % were women, mean age was 80.6 (standard deviation 2.2 years). Preliminary results indicate that following factors are significantly associated with good general health (adjusting for age and gender): being able to do things that make one feel valuable, satisfied with existence, physically active several times per week, having no physical problems to participate in social activities, not feeling sad, not having reduced energy and not having reduced endurance.

Conclusion: This results indicate that it can be of importance to pay attention to some specific health related resources when giving health promotion advices during the PHV.

Abstract [sv]

När äldre inte klarar av att bo hemma längre flyttar de ofta till ett vård-och omsorgs-boende, lever den sista tiden där och är i behov av palliativ vård. Palliativ vård är ett förhållningssätt som kännetecknas av en helhetssyn på människan utifrån individens behov. De som arbetar nära den äldre och den närstående är vård- och omsorgsperso-nalen och det är distriktssköterskan som har det övergripande ansvaret för omvårdna-den. Stöd till den närstående är av största vikt inom den palliativa vården. Syftet med studien var att beskriva vård- och omsorgspersonalens erfarenheter av att uppmärk-samma och stödja närstående till den äldre på vård- och omsorgsboende utifrån ett palliativt förhållningssätt. Datainsamlingarna gjordes i två omgångar, en fokusgrupp-sintervju 2017 och genomförda diskussionsgrupper 2010, analyserades med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys och tolkades med hjälp av Dosseys "Theory of integral nur-sing". I resultatet framkom kategorierna att skapa trygghet för den närstående, önskan att göra den närstående delaktig och att få kunskap om palliativ vård. Kategorierna utmynnade i temat: I ett palliativt förhållningssätt stöds närstående genom att de får känna trygghet och delaktighet. Slutsatsen är att vård- och omsorgspersonalens in-tention är att stödja de närstående men behöver arbeta mer i ett partnerskap med de närstående för att de ska känna en helhet och därmed trygghet och delaktighet.
