Emotional and psychological support of new residents in residential care

Margaret Thompson

This paper describes the experience of residents in a time limited counselling programme who had recently entered residential care. The program was An Aged Care Access Initiative Psychological Support Program for Low Care Residents. The group met for one hour each week for six weeks. Through the sharing of their own narratives the residents forged a communication link with each other whilst maintaining their own identity. Through sharing their collective narratives the group participants were able to hear how other members were adjusting and gain some solace that their individual experiences were similar to others.
