The aim of this study is to create an understanding of how caregivers at nursing homes in both the public and the private sector working conditions manifests itself from an organization theory perspective. The aim of this paper is to describe and analyze how the caregivers in elder care experience their working conditions and if the experiences differ depending on whether they work in the public or the private sector. The empirical study consists of six semi-structured interviews conducted on caregivers at nursing homes in six municipalities in southern Sweden.
The analytical tool used to illustrate the working conditions are Bolman and Deals HR- perspective that focuses on the relationships that exist between an organization and the people who are active in the organization and how the relationship affects the different parties. The study shows that caregivers at nursing homes generally experiences that their working conditions are good and that there are no direct differences in working conditions depending on whether you work in the public or the private sector. Common to all respondents was that they all wish for an extra resource consisting of an extraordinary caregiver in order to perform a more qualitative work and have time to sit down and spend time with the elderly. The respondents' explanations of stressors were related to the bad conscience and the feeling of not being good enough for the elderly. (Less)
