Abstract [en]

The purpose with this study was to examine which opinions and knowledge the directors have about the physical residential environment's importance on accommodations for people with dementia disease and how they do to create and to maintain a good physical residential environment. The issues have been: Which opinions and knowledge the directors had about the physical residential environment's importance for the people with dementia? How did the managers work in order to create and maintain a good physical residential environment? We had four themes, homelike environment on the accommodations, priorities on the accommodation, care/nursing in the physical residential environment and the manager’s possibility to influence the physical residential environment. The study followed a qualitative method. Five managers were interviewed on four accommodations and the managers were said to work actively with the physical residential environment. The results of the study were analyzed on the basis of Antonovskys theoretical perspectives called ”the feeling of contexts”. The result showed that the managers considered that the living environment for people with dementia should be a homelike environment which is individual tailored from their previous life. The managers wanted to accomplish a living environment which stimulated involvement.
