Abstract [en]

Because of the demographic change and staff shortage during night shifts, the elder care have to find new sources to lower the workload. Many have studied ways to digitize and automate some work routines to take off load from the personnel. One that is in use today is digital cameras that helps personnel to routine check elder patients during the night. The study is based in northern Sweden where different locations have been examined and on their experience of digital technology. The society’s attitude toward technology have changed over the past 10 years, where people have become accustomed to use tools in different ways. Elderly Care have begun approaching digitalization and as today, various technical tools are being used. Several pilot projects are being launched in which new technologies are being tested. The goal is to find tools that help elder care to respond to future workload and to offer a more adapted aid for the elder. This study have focused on today's elderly care and how their activity focuses on digitizing their routines and services. An example of the phenomenon is digital night supervision, which is a way to offer night supervision through a digital camera. The purpose of this study is to open a discussion regarding digital solutions in the field of elder care, where to study the tools that are available today that can support the personnel. The goal is to contribute with  increased understanding and examine attitudes towards digital tools as well as examine what is required to gain increased acceptance toward digitization.
