Abstract [en]

AIM: To explore the level of thriving and associated factors among older adults living at home with support from home care services.

DESIGN: An exploratory, cross-sectional survey design.

METHOD: A sample of 136 participants (mean 82 years) responded to a survey about thriving, health, psychosocial and care-related factors in 2016. Descriptive analysis and multiple logistic regression analysis with a stepwise backwards elimination procedure were performed.

RESULT: The results showed that the level of thriving was relatively high among adults living at home with support from home care services, with dimensions concerning engaging in activities and peer relations and keeping in touch with people and places being rated the lowest. Regression analysis showed that participating in social relations and experiencing self-determination in activities in and around the house were associated with thriving.

CONCLUSION: Facilitating social relations and creating opportunities for self-determination seem necessary to support thriving among older adults living at home with support from home care services.

IMPACT: The findings in this study add important knowledge about place-related well-being when living at home with home care services.
