Doctoral project: Who is alone? How is the loneliness of the elderly in the countryside constructed in the social services' speech, text and action
My doctoral project is about making visible and problematizing how the loneliness of the elderly in rural areas is constructed in the social services' speech, text and action. As part of this, it is included to deepen the understanding of how the geographical framework has significance and impact on the social services' assessment of loneliness among older people in rural areas.
