Hva gjør en aktivitør?


(Bildet er hentet fra flickr.com. Husker dessverre ikke opphavet.. men håper det er greit likevel).

I sin andre studie i USC Well Elderly Study II sier Leland R. Kaiser. Professor in the graduate program in Health Administration at the University of Colorado, Denver noe om hva han mener er en innovasjonstanke rundt yrkesgrupper innen eldreomsorgen i USA. Han foreslår at navnet er "Habitat Redesigners" for dette nye arbeidsfeltet. Hvilket betyr å gjøre om et menneskes miljø på mange plan. Han mener at denne yrkesgruppen skulle utvide tankegangen utover det medisinske spørsmålet og designe en friskere livsstil og et bedre levemiljø så menneskene skal blomstre. Videre sier han, (og nå tar vi resten på engelsk..)

"-expertise in this field would depend on knowledge about person-environment transactions and would entail drawing on both science and art to be successful. If environments (habitats) were designed properly to encourage health, he maintained, health for individuals situated in them would automatically follow.

Optimizing the person-environment fit is the ideal of this new breed of professional in his view; redesigning habitats involves creative imagination on the part of the practitioner, enabling people to compensate for what they lack and capitalize on their strengths, thus modifying total life contexts. Professor Kaiser claimed that sick environments cause sickness; redesigning contexts and life situations could prevent many chronic illnesses and disabilities. If you chose the habitat and make person-environment transactions more fruitful, he said, you can “turn off” disease.
Professor Kaiser emphasized the need for health professionals to get out and observe the environments of their clients. He used the example of a older woman who had broken her hip in an accident that might have been prevented a visit to the home, which would have revealed throw rugs scattered about, doors too narrow for walkers, a porch without roof and rails that allowed ice and snow to accumulate.
His story brought to mind some of the methods and findings of the USC Well Elderly Study. Professor Kaiser suggested that we should ask the following questions in assessing habitats: Is this a caring, loving, curious and accessible environment? Is it joyful? Does it promote growth and nurture the soul? Does it enable people to blossom? Finally, he stressed that high-intensity, therapeutic habitats are needed to reverse unhealthy problems of living."

-Og dette er det altså det handler om for oss aktivitører mener jeg!
Hvordan se muligheter for en god hverdag for brukere som ikke klarer dette på egenhånd, enten det gjelder å tilrettelegge fritid, ADL( activities of daily life/ daglige rutine) eller arbeid. Jobben består i å tilrettelegge på en slik måte at brukerne opplever å mestre sitt eget liv på best mulig måte:)
Det interresante er måten å betegne det på, som er inne i den tiden vi lever i nå, med å tenke bærekraftig utvikling og ikke minst redesign. En artig vinkling når man tenker på hvordan andre håndverksfag tenker redesign..
