Introduction and Purpose of This Guide

This guide is a supplement to ABCs of Nursing Home Transition: An Orientation Manual for New Transition Facilitators previously published by Independent Living Research Utilization (Holt, Jones, Petty, Roth, & Christensen, 2006 and updated in 2017). The two guides are meant to be used together. The first guide provides a context for this guide and discusses the overall process of assisting someone with their transition out of a nursing home into the community. This second guide, Choose, Get, Keep. . . Integrated Community Housing gives greater detail on one of the most challenging aspects to the transition process—locating and securing housing that meets the individual’s needs and preferences so that the transition can be completed.
