Transitioning to a nursing home can be exhausting and emotionally challenging. It's normal to feel a loss and grief. Living in a nursing home will be different than your home. You may be angry with your loved ones and your loved ones are feeling a loss and guilt as well. It will take some time to adjust. Bring familiar items that remind you of home, family photographs, home made items, favorite nick-knacks.
Neighborhood Design The Meadows incorporates a “neighbourhood” physical design (small groupings of residents in self-contained units within larger facilities). Our staffing model involves care staff involved in a wider range aspects of resident care and care staff typically work in one “neighbourhood” consistently to ensure the same staff members are caring for the same residents on a day-to-day basis.
