Moving home > Moving to a care home
Moving to a care home can be a stressful time for elderly people because they no longer having their own home, and they can experience a kind of bereavement. It is important that the decision to move to a care home is a positive decision taken by the older person rather than someone else. Whether an elderly person is moving to a residential care home or nursing home including a private care home, he or she will need to be supported through the process and encouraged to take personal possessions and small items of furniture if possible. This will help them to personalise their room, and adapt to living in the care home with its benefits of practical care and companionship. It is usually possible for older people to have a trial period at a care home before making a final decision.
