    Article - En anglais

    This study investigated residents'perspectives of their first 2 weeks in a long-term care facility (LTCF).

    Twelve residents were interviewed to determine their experiences during the first 2 weeks, their needs, priorities and expectations, and their views about how relocation from home could be facilitated.

    The constant comparative method of qualitative analysis (Glaser & Strauss, 1967) was used..

    Qualitative analysis of the audiotaped interviews revealed four main categories : emotional reactions, transition activities, reflecting on their situation, and connecting with a personal philosophy..

    Residents'responses indicated that if they had actively participated in the decision to be admitted, the adjustment to the LTCF was easier.

    Connecting with a personal philosophy was also a significant factor..

    Nursing implications include recognition of the importance of preparing residents for admission, involving them in the decision, and listening to their perspectives throughout the relocation experience.
