Publisher's Description

An exploration of the emotional toll a transition into assisted living can have, as well as an offering of practical knowledge and advice on how to make wise choices during this difficult time

 

While acknowledging the intense experience of grief and bereavement that surrounds the relinquishment of independent living, this book explores how to ensure that those going into care retain their identity and are not reduced to peripheral status as "patient" or "resident." This book is written both for those preparing to enter residential care and for those—professionals, volunteers, pastors, family members, and friends—who can offer support to ease the struggle of transition. Covering practical details from how to choose a home to what to pack when moving, it will help facilitate a smooth transition at an emotional time of upheaval.
