Is senior housing the new housing shape for 55 +? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Är seniorboende den nya bostadsformen för 55+? Pålsson, B. (2011) Halmstad: Högskolani Halmstad.Detta är en kandidatuppsats vars syfte är att belysa den nya avskilda boendeformen för 55+som växer fram i samhället och undersöka hur den upplevs av hyresgästerna samt om det kanklassas som ett gated community. Uppsatsen bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer av hyresgäster i55+ boendet BoViva Halmstad.Resultatet visar att den nya formen av seniorboende kan ses som en bekräftelse på att dettraditionella samhällets gemeinschaft har gått förlorat tillsammans med dess nära relationer,gemenskap och trygghet. Gemeinschaft har därmed blivit en vara som går att köpa isenmodernitetens samhälle där gesellschaftens ytliga och kalkylerande relationer dominerar.De välbeställda seniorer som söker gemenskap, trygghet och lugn och ro, verkar ha funnit vadde söker. BoViva Halmstad kan ses som en början på ett gated community och fortsättertrenden kommer Sverige inom några år ha flera etablerade gated communities där man köpersig trygghet och gemenskap men även tillskriver sig en livsstil.

Abstract [en]

Is senior housing the new housing shape for 55 +? Pålsson, B. (2011) Halmstad:Högskolan i Halmstad.This is a candidate thesis in order to highlight the new isolated housing shape for "seniors"which is emerging in society, and also examine how they are perceived by the tenantsthemselves, and to what extent they can be described as "gated communities" or "gatesocieties". The paper is based on earlier researches within the subject, along with qualitativeinterviews with tenants in the 55 + household BoViva in Halmstad.The result indicates that the new form of senior housing can be seen as an affirmation that thetraditional society’s gemeinshaft has been lost together with its close relations, friendship andsafety. Gemeinschaft has therefore become a commodity which can be purchased in the latemodernsociety where gesellschaft’s shallow and calculated relations dominates. The wealthyseniors who are striving for close relations, friendship and safety seems to have found theirplace to be, far away from the busy and loud part of the society. BoViva Halmstad can beseen as a gated community and if this trend continues, Sweden could surely generate severalestablished communities where one can buy safety, friendship and a lifestyle.
