Care provided by patient’s relatives and immigrant groups in Swedish society
I teach in terms 1 and 5 of the nursing programme in Norrköping.
Syrians as an ethnic group in Swedish society are expected to care for their elderly at home. But what does it mean to be Syrian and care for an elderly relative today? My study of Syrians as carers for relatives in Swedish society has looked at what this involves by means of group interviews that have then been analysed on the basis of what the participants talked about and laughed at during the groups’ discussions.
