Just like any time you move house, the process can be daunting and emotionally challenging.
Resthaven recognises this, and provides you with support to transition into your new home comfortably.
It is important to have some of your own special things with you, and that your friends and family visit. It is also important that you are open to developing new relationships with people, particularly with the staff who are there to help.
If requested, we can provide you with a social worker or chaplain to provide you with extra emotional support during this time.
