The aim of this study was to examine leaders in elderly-care and their view on person-centred care in their organizations and how they look upon the perceived loneliness experienced by the elderly. More specific the aim was to find out how the leaders provide an environment for their staff to implement person-centred care to the residents. Data was collected from five leaders in elderly-care. Qualitative, semi-structured interviews were conducted and the data was analyzed qualitatively using Human Resourses-theory.

The conclusion was that all of the respondents were struggling with satisfying the needs of their employees’ due to the lack of resources, such as time and financing. The consequents of not having a motivated staff leads to an environment where the employees can’t develop an adequate system for person-centred care.

The leaders in elderly-care had different opinions about the reason for loneliness amongst the elder. The respondents whom worked at residential homes for elderly believed that their client’s loneliness depended on the fact that they misses close relatives and that they as care givers can’t reduce that feeling. The leaders in home care service believed that they can minimize the client’s loneliness by talking to the clients and giving them more company.

Key words: person-centred care, semi-structured interview, loneliness, human resources, leadership, elderly-care. (Less)
