This contribution provides an analysis of the perception that frail elderly people and their primary networks have of local policies aimed at supporting them. To offer an overview on the emerging needs that arise from the elderly population, the results of a national qualitative research, carried out in the field between January 2020 and April 2021, will be presented. The research involved a total of 62 dyads, consisting of an elderly person and a reference person. The key concepts of the analysis are two: the concept of transition to the frailty of the elderly subject and the concept of community care, within which the questions about the care of frailty subjects can emerge. The research questions are the following: what needs doing the subjects express, which of these become a social question that can be collected by policies in a community care perspective, what differences emerge from the different profiles of the dyads? To answer these questions, we have analysed, through the N'Vivo software, the material that emerged from the dyadic interviews to understand how the relationships support are configured, how they face the transition and what different resources are able to activate to face the critical events, already arisen in the path of each one.

Abstract

This contribution provides an analysis of the perception that frail elderly people and their primary networks have of local policies aimed at supporting them. To offer an overview on the emerging needs that arise from the elderly population, the results of a national qualitative research, carried out in the field between January 2020 and April 2021, will be presented. The research involved a total of 62 dyads, consisting of an elderly person and a reference person. The key concepts of the analysis are two: the concept of transition to the frailty of the elderly subject and the concept of community care, within which the questions about the care of frailty subjects can emerge. The research questions are the following: what needs doing the subjects express, which of these become a social question that can be collected by policies in a community care perspective, what differences emerge from the different profiles of the dyads? To answer these questions, we have analysed, through the N'Vivo software, the material that emerged from the dyadic interviews to understand how the relationships support are configured, how they face the transition and what different resources are able to activate to face the critical events, already arisen in the path of each one.
