Aging with Dignity

Innovation and Challenge in Sweden – the Voice of Care Professionals

Sofia Widén, William A. Haseltine

Demographic change is a defining issue of our time. As the worldwide population ages, the healthcare systems of every country will meet challenges of scale in providing for their elderly. Aging with Dignity: Innovation and Challenge in Sweden: The Voice of Elder Care Professionals is a study in the future of elder care through the lens of the Swedish healthcare system.

Over the past year, ACCESS Health has conducted extensive interviews with more than thirty elder care professionals in Sweden. Aging with Dignity collects these in depth interviews alongside summary chapters and analysis.

If a small, wealthy nation like Sweden, with well developed healthcare and social welfare systems, encounters difficulties adapting to demographic change, so too will other nations. By examining Sweden s healthcare coordination, homecare technology, dementia care, and eHealthcare initiatives, Aging with Dignity makes the case for best practices. It is our hope that readers will recognize as universal both the challenges and the innovative solutions presented here.
