The emotional side of moving into a care home

What is it about?

We often forget the emotional side of transitions and the feelings of relatives when a care home placement is needed.

Why is it important?

So far, four of my relatives have needed residential care. Many friends and extended family have needed to find a care home placement for loved ones. It is easy to forget the implications on emotions and relationships when a care home is needed.
