Transition from hospital to nursing home video

Todd Vandenbark

For many people the transition from hospital to nursing home life is associated with anxiety, threat to quality of life, and loss of independence. Transition from Hospital to Nursing Home is a video that provides examples of, and guidance on, common situations faced by patients and their families during this challenging time. The goal of this program is to encourage health care providers to become more involved in preparing older adult patients for nursing home admission, and in helping them adjust to this new setting.
