Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to explore how the people with a mental functional disorder experience living support. This studies research questions are; What kind of help do the clients receive from living support? Do they feel that they need more help or do they receive more help then they fell that they need? What does the relationship look like between the clients and the supporter? To answer these questions a qualitative research approach was used. Four clients where interviewed. The results are presented using themes and quotations. The themes that are used are; Activities done together with living support, the experience of social control, the experience of taking part in the planning and the experience of time limitation, and finally the relationship to the supporter. The results are analyzed using symbolic interactionism and normalization perspective. The results show that the clients receive help with housekeeping and other ordinary chores. The clients also experience that the support is a kind of social control, which they experience as positive. The clients feel that the supporter feels like a friend, even though most of the clients feel that there are limits to the friendship.
