Transfer Trauma

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
  • Hopelessness.
  • Restlessness.
  • Fatigue.
  • Inability to focus.
  • Poor hygiene.
  • Changes in eating and sleeping habits.
  • Increased susceptibility to physical health conditions.
