A Time of Transition seeks to accomplish two main goals. The first goal is to introduce families to the realities of nursing home life; what new residents and families can expect as their loved one transitions to communal living and they begin the process of working with a formal caregiving team. The video also discusses what happens to oneâ€™s body as we all face the normal process of aging. The second goal of the video is to reassure families that they made the right decision in admitting their loved one to a nursing home. And, that by focusing their attention on the important aspects of their loved oneâ€™s care, they contribute greatly to their loved oneâ€™s happiness and quality of life.
