The present essay is a fieldstudy in the vouchersystem in in-home elderlycare in the municipality of Nacka near Stockholm carried out in April 2004. The system is a relativly new model for organising elderlycare in Sweden. Our main purpose has been to investigate elderly peoples´ options within the system. The questions which interested us were the following: Who chooses and how? Is the choice influenced by ethnical affiliations, sex or class? Are the elderly informed about the possibilities of new options and do they use these options? What information is supplied about the system and can the elderly utilize it? Is there a difference between the elderlycare and the handicapcare within the vouchersystem? The present investigation discerns certain tendencies concerning the options made, such as the diffrences in the elderlies´ individual qualities, different political affiliations and how the information is facilitated. Another influencial factor has been the actual shaping of the voucher. We also found a distinct difference in the variety of options between the elderlycare and the handicapcare due to different systems of law applying to elderlycare and handicapcare respectively.
