Opis: The aim of this studz was to establish how familz members are involved in elder care provision in nursing homes; this included research into their feelings about potentiallz extending their involvement to obtain financial benefits as compensation for high accommodation costs. Familz members remain involved in the caring process after their relatives have been admitted to an institution. On average, accommodation costs in nursing homes in Slovenia haverisen above the residentsʼ retirement pension, and families must supplement the difference. Because of this, familial involvement should be linked to reduced accommodation costs. This research emplozed a non-experimental, descriptive studz design through unstructured interviews. Participants included fiftz familz members (n = 50) who visit their relatives in nursing homes. Data were collected in 2010 at five nursing homes in Slovenia and processed bz means of conventional content analzsis. The major themes that emerged from the content analzsis, describing familz involvement, were as follows: visiting and making oneself useful, deliverz of items for personal use, hands-on care, phzsical therapz and organiyation of nursing homeactivities. Familz members showed some interest in receiving financial compensation for their involvement. The proposed financial compensation maz bea delicate and morallz questionable matter but would involve fairness and transparencz, while enabling easier organiyation of elder care provision. Eventuallz, nursing home residentsʼ well-being could be improved.
