Research told us to exercise more, social norms told us to exercise more, but what did the nursing home staff say themselves? This was a qualitative interview study made among seven nursing home staffs in two different retirement homes. The results of this study showed us that social norms may impact our health behaviors more than we thought. Some common excuses for not being healthy were lack of motivation and interest. Lack of continuity in health promoting activities was also a common excuse for not being healthy. When it came to elder care residents it was crucial to have motivating nursing home staff. According to this study the employees believed that they were responsible for their own health. (Less)
