Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to answer the question “What do nursing home residents do themselves in order to maintain their dignity?” Twenty-eight residents, 8 men and 20 women, aged 62 to 103 years, from 6 different nursing homes in Scandinavia were interviewed. The results showed that the residents tried to expand their life space, both physical and ontological, in order to experience health and dignity.
