Homebased eldercare: intercultural perspectives of receiving, providing and organizing
In many countries, the eldercare is in transition and there are a variety of kinds of models for receiving, providing and organizing homebased eldercare. These may face different challenges regarding capability from the users’, the workers’ and societal’ perspectives. The pre-conference focus on intercultural and cross-cultural variations, i.e. how homebased eldercare is experiencing, developed and what consequences it may have from various perspectives and contexts.
The aim of this workshop will be twofold.
First, it offers a learning opportunity and a platform for interdisciplinary discussions about eldercare in different cultures and from various perspectives.
Second, it will be open for discussions on aspects of methodology in inter- and cross-cultural studies.
The preconference is open for scholars from a wide range of sciences connected to work, eldercare, health, management, sociology, psychology, public health and social policy.
We welcome short presentations (5-10 min) of on-going research or research questions that you want to bring forward. The spectrum of themes can be wide, as long as they relate to care of older people and brings issues of contextual and cultural perspectives.
