Abstract [en]

Aim

To explore experiences of ageing in older people living in nursing homes, based on the gerotranscendence theory.

Method

Interviews were held with 14 people aged between 80 and 96 years. The results were analysed using content analysis.

Findings

The findings were divided into three categories: the self, the cosmic dimension, and social and personal relationships. These three categories were underpinned by eight subcategories. Most participants described improved knowledge about themselves, decreased concern about body and appearance, acceptance and appreciation of life, and less regard for social norms. A fewer participants described a greater affinity with past generations, or thought that the borders between past and present had become blurred.

Conclusion

This study provides a better understanding of how people experience old age. It also indicates how healthcare professionals could apply the gerotranscendence theory of ageing as a conversation model to enable care to be adjusted according to older people's wishes.
