Abstract [sv]

Growing old should be the golden years of your life, being able to do whatever you want to do. Instead these years are often combined with both physical and psychological illness. Neither the body or mind are what they once were. It has been shown through empirical studies that many elderly people don’t have any social support at all. The results show loneliness and a lower experience of quality of life. Many elderly people live in community care homes, which give the opportunity of supervision and care, day and night, even though the feeling of loneliness might still be present. The aim with the study was to describe elderly people’s quality of life through the care systems perspective. The method used was a literary study with scientific articles as the foundation. The articles were located through various different data bases. The result of the study is presented through three main categories which show that social support and good physical and psychological health increase the perception of good quality of life. It is important to develop the understanding of quality of life amongst the elderly through research.
