Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay has been to examine the public`s view of the Swedish eldercare during 2006. This study uses discourse analysis as a research method, the reference material has been articles from the newspaper Dagens Nyheter. The aim of the research has been to find central themes, conflicts and consensus in the discourse of eldercare. The analysis resulted in four main subjects which were based on four main questions; the questions of responsibility and execution, the question of contents, and the question of where the eldercare should take place. The analysis of conflicts and relations of consensus in the discourse of eldercare resulted in two different main views; the traditional and a more modern. The traditional view of eldercare includes terms like caring, safety and dignity. The modern, on the other hand, uses terms like consumption, quality and freedom of choice. It was found in the analysis that the modern view appeared to be more prominent than the traditional view in the discourse.
