초록

Moving into care is a significant life event for older people and their families and often occurs at a time when other life stresses such as deaths of loved ones and health complications are paramount. This book directly addresses the psychological impact that move can have, and offers tips for making the transition as smooth as possible. Based on material from interviews with a wide sample of people who had recently moved into care and a review of existing literature about the process, the guide follows the whole journey from considering a move into care, making the move and settling in, offering advice on each step of the way.Case stories from people who have just made the transition help make this an approachable and accessible read for those about to move into care and a helpful tool for families and staff who will be assisting them.
