Work with families with clients with special needs in the aoutreach services Milevsko
This bachelor thesis is focused on families with clients taken care of in the home environment with the help of field care. Nowadays, if a family member falls ill and in consequence of this illness their motion is limited, they are unable to take care of themselves, thus they are dependent on the help of another person. Sometimes, the family are unable to manage taking care of their relative. Being able to find help as well as knowing where to find it is significant for the nursing individual. Many families cannot or do not want to take care of their relatives, and thus, clients end up in retirement house, where their health condition deteriorates. I chose this topic because I had worked within field care Humanica, and my professional practice took place in Social Servces in Milevsko. The aim of the theoretical part is mapping out information about old age, how it is classified, what changes occur in old age, the most frequent illnesses, and a brief overview of social services in Milevsko. The main aim of the practical part is to find out how working with the family is integrated within field work. To reach this aim, I have chosen another, partial aim. To collect data, I have used a qualitative research of open coding. A standardized interview consisting of 8 respondents made up the main method. Further, I had the option of viewing personal documents to approach clients´ anamnesis. The research was carried out in spring 2018. Results were processed also using literal transcription and tables. The research has found out that families are unable to manage their situation without field workers who, according to care-taking individuals, are emphathic, and are able to fulfill almost all of their requirements. A family, cooperating with field service, is able to take complex care of a client in their natural, home environment. Taking care of an ill individua within home enviornment is very demanding, and it influences the operation of the whole family, thus it is necessary for the family to stick together and help each other, always. Results may be used mainly in given field services, leading to the improvement of services in Milevsko. Further, they may be useful to students, experts in social services, and to family information about the significance of field service cooperation.

Current life of "superwomen" after primary family breakup
Hanáková, Šárka ; Kobová, Ĺubica (advisor) ; Hasmanová Marhánková, Jaroslava (referee)
This thesis is dedicated to women who were called "the super women" during the communist era. Their mission was to combine their profession with taking care of their children alongside of being a housewife. Even though the traditional model of the men supporting the whole family changed to more democratic model with the both man and woman supporting the family, the housekeeping and taking care of children still stayed the wive's responsibility. In the period of communism, women were "double burdened". They dedicated their lives for their families and the free time they had, which was less then what men had, mostly corresponded with the interests of children and the whole family. In this thesis I focus on how these women live nowadays. They have already retired and after losing their partner they now live alone. I also focus on how they deal with this different life situation and changes in their social roles. I work with the theoretical approaches of emancipated femininity and active aging as a way to cope with changes in social status. I chose the qualitative approach as a research method. It is implemented in this diploma thesis by analyzing thorough interviews with widowed seniors.
