Abstract [en]

We were commissioned to do this study by the Red Cross Centre for victims of torture and war (RKC) in Skövde and questions was asked about how it can be to come as a refugee to a new country and start over. The purpose of this study was to search for a deeper knowledge about older immigrants experiences of their integration in the Swedish community. The conception of “older immigrant” aimed of persons born before 1954 since these persons culturally was the older ones in the patient group at RKC. This study handled both men and women, was categorised in different themes and was analysed from theoretical points about identity and crises. The method that was chosen was qualitative interviews since we wanted to share the respondents own stories about their experiences. The respondents were chosen from former patients since ten years or more at RKC, born before 1954. We found the material partly through Internet, partly through libraries and also in literature that belongs to the social work programme. The result of the study showed that having a work is a very important part in the integration and that loneliness was the common denominator in the daily life of the respondents. Finally, it was established that we must be better on making best use of the resources that immigrants bring when they come to Sweden.

Abstract [sv]

Uppdraget att göra denna studie fick vi av Röda Korsets Behandlingscenter i Skövde och frågor väcktes om hur det kan vara att som flykting komma till ett nytt land och starta om på nytt. Syftet med studien var att söka en fördjupad kunskap om äldre invandrares upplevelser av sin integration i det svenska samhället. Begreppet ”äldre invandrare” syftade på personer födda före 1954 då dessa personer kulturmässigt var de äldre i patientgruppen på RKC. Studien behandlade både män och kvinnor, kategoriserades i olika teman och analyse¬rades därefter ur teoretiska utgångspunkter om identitet och kris. Metoden som valdes var kvali¬tativa djupintervjuer då målet var att få ta del av respondenternas egna berättelser om sina erfarenheter och upplevelser. Respondenterna valdes utifrån att de varit patienter på RKC för tio år sen eller mer och att de var födda före 1954. Material fann vi dels via Internets sökmotorer, dels på bibliotek samt i litteratur som hör till socionomutbildningen. Studiens resultat visade på att arbete är en mycket viktig del i integrationen och att ensamhet var en gemensam nämnare i invandrarnas vardag. Slutligen konstaterades att vi måste bli bättre på att tillvarata de resurser som invandrare bär med sig när de kommer till Sverige.
