Abstract [en]

Introduction: Dignity is a basic concept for quality care regardless of how and where care is given. Researchers have described the use of Assistive Technology Services (ATS) in order to promote quality care and support of older persons. However, in perceptions of the use of ATS there are values imbedded that only to limited extent are studied. The aim of this study was therefore to describe healthy older persons' perception about care and the use of ATS.Methods and Materials: Qualitative research interviews were conducted with twelve healthy older couples living in their own homes. All participants were 70 years of age or older and received no professional care or social support. Open, individual, semi-structured interviews were conducted with the support of written vignettes where three levels of care needs were described. A qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the interviews. Results: Regardless of whether participants were discussing quality care in general or ATS supported care, they were convinced that the best place to receive care was the home. Values associated with the use of ATS in care were closely connected to the ability of being in control of the care situation. ATS as a tool to facilitate care was perceived as an asset as long as the couples were in control of their care situation. Hesitation in their abilities to use ATS increased if they lacked a partner and their cognitive impairment increased. Regardless of other factors, dignity is highly valued, and has greater importance when other values like autonomy and independence are reduced. Conclusion: These findings highlight older persons' values about quality care and the use of ATS in care and should be taken into consideration when planning care of older persons, and implementing new technology related to their care. It is necessary that politicians and care planners explore various options to deliver the best care, as perceived by older persons.
