Management of Relocation


Relocation is a major life transition, is stressful, and can lead to both positive and negative outcomes regardless of the person’s. In later life, adults frequently experience three types or stages of relocation: (a) the first occurs when adults retire and move to a desirable location because of the amenities offered; (b) the second takes place when older adults begin to experience health problems or widowhood and then move closer to family members; and (c) the third happens when family members are not able to meet all the older adult’s needs and a move to a more supportive environment, such as an assisted living facility or nursing home, is necessary. This guideline focuses on the second and third stages of relocation.


This guideline provides strategies to help cognitively intact older adults plan for and adapt to relocation from one residence or home to another. Includes: risk factors indicating the need for relocation, risk factors for maladjustment after relocation, interventions for both pre-relocation and post-relocation management, assessment tools, and outcome evaluations. Written 2005; Revised 2015.
