Nursing Home Transition

Nursing home residents are trapped in their nursing homes. They have no choice but to stay there, and they have no control over the quality of care they receive.

Our NFT Program empowers older adults to transition out of nursing facilities into community-based living options that offer more freedom and services than a typical nursing facility. We provide individuals with personalized assistance as they transition from a nursing home or other long-term care setting into independent community-based living arrangements including assisted living, personal care homes, adult family homes, shared housing, or private residences.

What is Nursing Facility Transition (NFT)?

Our Nursing Facility Transition program helps individuals living in nursing homes transition into independent community-based living. We can help regardless of age (18+) or disability. We use a person-centered planning approach to assist people with returning to their own homes, moving in with family/friends, or finding new housing.

Nursing facility residents may request transition services for themselves, or referrals may be made by a family member, friend, or nursing facility staff.

Once a referral has been made, a transition interview will be conducted to obtain the information necessary to assist with long-term care goals.
