Making the move to residential care is one of the biggest decisions most people have to make in their lives. Focusing on staff and residents at Drummond Grange, the five video tracks in this album explore the organisational and personal aspects of the transition from independent living to residential care. It addresses the importance of selecting the right place for your needs and interests, finding ways to maintain contact with your family and adjusting to life in a new community. The material forms part of the course K216 Applied Social Work Practice.
