For the implementation of the method I started off with the making of a text analysis where I created an analysis framework. The analysis framework was used to structure and to find patterns in my material. The result in this study has shown that people with disabilities must among other things get used to be a service user, and also get used to the process of having personal assistance. The process includes letting other people, assistants and authorities in their lives. These processes can lead to both possibilities and limitations. (Less)
