Abstract [en]

In many cases immobilized people are highly vulnerable in crises, mainly due to physical obstacles but also due to dependency on medication and technical or social systems, such as security alarm and home care service. The aim of this study is to seek understanding of what impact social resources and experience of crises has on the behaviour of immobilized people during infrastructural crises. The data was collected in two municipalities in three steps (n=100): first by a survey concerning actual social resources, second another survey on presumptive behaviour in a crisis situation (stimuli = scenario) and, thirdly, by interviews of respondents. The results were crosschecked with survey data on a national scale comparing other groups on the same level of social resources. Preliminary results show that social resources, as well as risk experience, have an impact on both risk perception and risk behaviour among immobilized people.
