A country's ability to deal with a pandemic depends to a large extent on the health care and its staff's skills and willingness to work. Previous research shows that healthcare professionals during epidemics/pandemics can suffer from anxiety, stress, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. A study of care assistants' experience of elderly care work during the covid-19 pandemic can contribute to increased knowledge about how care work can be organized in the event of a crisis. The project is expected to provide knowledge about elderly care work during the covid-19 pandemic. The knowledge is expected to form the basis for support measures, strategies and tools for a better working environment, health and leadership in elderly care. The results can also be useful for other health care professionals.
