Top Ten Things You Need to Know Before Moving Into a Nursing Home
Transitioning from home to a nursing home or facility can be traumatic. Your loved one is entering the last phase of his or her life and the move means relinquishing a certain degree of privacy, individual decision-making, and freedom. Coming to this decision is often an uneasy one, since your parent may well resist the move and refuse to cooperate. This decision can be equally traumatic for you since you will be taking on new responsibilities if you want your loved one to be comfortable in her new surroundings.
