1. Ramos, Teresa Maria Póvoa. Cuidar de idosos com demência: necessidades de apoio e recursos ótimos de intervenção na perspetiva dos cuidadores formais.

Degree: 2017, Technical University of Lisbon

Dissertação de Mestrado em Política Social

O crescente número de pessoas com demência, coloca novos desafios às instituições que acolhem e cuidam de pessoas idosas e aos seus cuidadores formais. Cuidar destas pessoas com demência está, pois, associado a elevados níveis de insatisfação laboral, devido à grande dependência e frequentes distúrbios comportamentais que acompanham a doença que se verificam nas pessoas dementes. Este trabalho de investigação tem como objetivo identificar os conhecimentos sobre demências e o modo de aquisição dos mesmos; explorar as práticas do cuidado profissional a pessoas com demência; analisar os constrangimentos e as dificuldades à ação profissional junto de pessoas com demência; analisar as aprendizagens e o desenvolvimento pessoal proporcionado pelo trabalho com pessoas com demência e ainda, identificar as necessidades de apoio e ou de recursos ótimos para uma ação profissional com qualidade junto de pessoas com demência. A demência na população idosa, coloca novos problemas e desafios que põe em causa a eficácia das escassas políticas públicas existentes em Portugal direcionadas para estas questões. Neste estudo de natureza qualitativa recorreremos a uma amostra não probabilística por conveniência e serão realizadas entrevistas a cuidadores formais multidisciplinares de pessoas mais velhas com demência afetos a uma Instituição Particular de Solidariedade Social com respostas sociais na área do envelhecimento no concelho de Oeiras. Os resultados que esperamos obter serão indicadores da necessidade de desenvolver programas de ação e formação integrados em instituições e destacarão conteúdos que podem ser utilizados na melhoria da qualidade do cuidado profissional prestado à pessoa com demência.

The growing number of people with dementia poses new challenges to the institutions that receive and take care of the elderly, and to their formal caretakers. Taking care of people with dementia is therefore associated with high levels of work dissatisfaction, due to the great dependency and frequent behavioral disturbances that go with the disease and can be found in people with dementia. Dementia in the elderly population, poses new problems and challenges that calls into question the effectiveness of the scarce existing public policies in Portugal addressed for these subjects. The main goals of this investigative work are to identify the dementia know-how and the way to acquire it, explore professional caring practices applied to people with dementia, analyze constraints and difficulties to the professional intervention directed at people with dementia, analyze the learning process and the personal development as a consequence of working with people with dementia and identify the support or optimal resources needed to guarantee a better quality of the professional action provided to people with dementia. In this qualitative type study, a non-probabilistic sampling by convenience will be used and interviews will be conducted to formal and multidisciplinary caretakers of elderly people…

2. MacLeod, Suzanne. From the "rising tide" to solidarity: disrupting dominant crisis discourses in dementia social policy in neoliberal times.

Degree: School of Social Work, 2014, University of Victoria

As a social worker practising in long-term residential care for people living with dementia, I am alarmed by discourses in the media and health policy that construct persons living with dementia and their health care needs as a threatening “rising tide” or crisis. I am particularly concerned about the material effects such dominant discourses, and the values they uphold, might have on the collective provision of care and support for our elderly citizens in the present neoliberal economic and political context of health care. To better understand how dominant discourses about dementia work at this time when Canada’s population is aging and the number of persons living with dementia is anticipated to increase, I have rooted my thesis in poststructural methodology. My research method is a discourse analysis, which draws on Foucault’s archaeological and genealogical concepts, to examine two contemporary health policy documents related to dementia care – one national and one provincial. I also incorporate some poetic representation – or found poetry – to write up my findings. While deconstructing and disrupting taken for granted dominant crisis discourses on dementia in health policy, my research also makes space for alternative constructions to support discursive and health policy possibilities in solidarity with persons living with dementia so that they may thrive. Advisors/Committee Members: (advisor), Strega, Susan (supervisor).
