dc.description.abstractThere is no doubt that the move from one's own home to a care home is a major, and often final, life transition. For many it may signify a decline in physical and mental heath, a reduction in, or even the end of, independence, or be the corollary of the death of a partner.As such, the move can have negative connotations but, with appropriate planning and support, the transition can be managed so that it produces benefits, including improved quality of life.The extent to which this happens in practice, and the ways in which the transition can be facilitated, will be examined in this chapter.
