I defended my PhD-thesis at Lund University in 2014. The thesis is about what happens when older people consider relocation to a residential home and how older people, their family members and care managers experience and describe the process. This research interest has been further developed. As a senior lecturer at University of Gothenburg, I had the possibility to study how nurses handle the process when older people consider relocation to a residential home after hospitalization. Then, as a postdoctoral researcher at Linnaeus University, I revealed how care workers in the home-help service handle this process.  Lately, I have participated in research on multi-professional teams and their possibilities to contribute to a coherent care of older people suffering from multi-morbidity. In another project, I have also studied how older people enrolled in eldercare services experience and handle their everyday lives.  


I am teaching and supervising on various courses and levels at the School of Social Work, mainly at Campus Helsingborg.
