Ingemar “Pingo” Kåreholt, PhD, is a Professor at Jönköping University, senior fellow and senior researcher at ARC. Kåreholt’s research interests are broad and cover nearly all aspects of aging and the situation in old age. Examples of research areas he is involved in are:

  • Working conditions before retirement age and how it is associated to health, physical functioning and mortality in older age.
  • Health trends in the older ages.
  • Leadership behaviors and psychosocial working conditions in nursing homes and home help services.
  • Trends in survival after referral to nursing homes.
  • Mortality risk after dementia diagnoses. Here we have for instance analyses of the effect of BMI (Body Mass Index), type of dementia, medicine use, and what causes of deaths that are most common.
  • Health care utilization during the last years of life.
  • Life-style factors associated to risk of dementia and cognitive problems.
  • The balance between formal and informal care.
