You and your parents can expect ‘transfer trauma’ as part of any relocation process. If you or one of your parents are moving to assisted living or a nursing home, expect disruption. If money is not the object (long term care insurance), the family upheaval is much less severe.
Transfer trauma is a condition characterized by a range of symptoms that occur due to the changes and anxieties associated with the relocation process.
These symptoms include:
- Brain fog and confusion
- Inability to focus.
- Poor hygiene.
- Changes in eating and sleeping habits.
- Increased susceptibility to physical health conditions.
