Music in elderly care : Caregivers perceptions about learning of music activities (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how healthcare professionals perceive the importance of music as part of care in elderly care. The study has been inspired by the phenomenographic methodology aimed at detecting variations in caregivers' perceptions of music in elderly care. The data collection methods used in this study are participatory observations conducted during a music activity, as well as semi-structured interviews with caregivers. The analysis has been conducted based on a phenomenographic analysis model and has resulted in three descriptive categories:functional ability, emotions and learning together with associated subcategories. The result shows that music can improve old people´s memory, mobility and affect their mood. Music in elderly care can also increase the well-being and quality of life of elderly people, as well as contribute to the learning of staff that can increase the quality of care for the elderly.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur vård- och omsorgspersonal uppfattar betydelsen av musik som en del av vård och omsorg inom äldreomsorgen. Studien har inspirerats av den fenomenografiska metodansatsen som syftar till att upptäcka variationer i omsorgspersonalens uppfattningar om musik i äldreomsorgen. De datainsamlingsmetoder som har använts i studien är deltagande observationer som genomförts under en musikaktivitet på ett äldreboende, samt semistrukturerade intervjuer med omsorgspersonalen. Analysen har genomförts utifrån en fenomenografisk analysmodell och har resulterat i tre beskrivningskategorier:funktionsförmåga, känslor och lärande med tillhörande underkategorier. Resultatet visar att musik kan förbättra äldre personers minne, rörelseförmåga och påverka deras humör. Musikinslag i vård- och omsorg kan öka äldre personers välbefinnande och livskvalitet samt bidra till ett lärande hos personalen som kan leda till att kvaliteten i äldreomsorgen ökar.
