Experiences of working with animals at daily activities : A qualitative interview study among people with disabilities (English)
Abstract [en]

The central part in all public health work is health promotion and disease preventing actions among the population. Since all public health work includes the whole population, the work has to embrace disabled people as well. Within the disability policies, participation and equality are important goals, which illustrate the importance of a job. In previous studies the positive effects of animal have been detected among persons with disabilities, by better balance, better mobility, larger social network, new knowledge and most of all happiness. The aim of this study was to investigate how people with disabilities experience their health when they are working with animal husbandry at daily activities. The study was based on a project which started in Örkelljunga in January 2012. The purpose was to help the persons in the project to have a more active day at their daily activity. The survey was conducted with interviews as a qualitative method, in which six participants with disabilities where interviewed. The result showed that the participants felt that their daily activity was more meaningful since they had started working with animals and they showed joy while performing their tasks. Most importantly they felt better, where happier and more alert. The conclusion of the study showed that working with animals on daily activities could have a health promotion effect on the participant’s well-being and development.   

Abstract [sv]

Den centrala delen i allt folkhälsoarbete är hälsofrämjande och sjukdomsförebyggandesatsningar bland befolkningen. Då folkhälsoarbetet gäller hela befolkningen borde arbetetäven ha ett funktionsnedsättningsperspektiv. Inom handikappolitiken är delaktighet ochjämlikhet viktiga mål, vilket bland annat belyser vikten av att ha ett arbete. I tidigare studierhar de positiva effekterna av djur påvisats hos personer med funktionsnedsättning, blandannat genom bättre balans, bättre rörelseförmåga, större socialt nätverk, utveckling av nyakunskaper och framför allt glädje. Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka hurpersoner med funktionsnedsättning upplever sin hälsa vid arbete med djurskötsel på dagligverksamhet. Studien har sin utgångspunkt i ett projekt som startade i Örkelljunga kommun ijanuari 2012. Undersökningen genomfördes med intervjuer som kvalitativ metod, där sex avdeltagarna med funktionsnedsättning intervjuades. Resultatet visade att deltagarna upplevdesin dagliga verksamhet som betydligt mer meningsfull sedan de börjat arbeta med djur. De sersina arbetsuppgifter som betydelsefulla, de visar en glädje i att vilja utföra dem och lära signya saker. Framför allt upplever deltagarna stor skillnad i sitt psykiska välmående, de mårbättre, de känner sig gladare och piggare. Sammanfattningsvis visade studien att arbetet meddjur på daglig verksamhet kan ha en hälsofrämjande inverkan på deltagarnas välmående ochutveckling.
