Transition to nursing home represents a challenge for the individual resources and a turmoil in the relationship between the person and his/her context, threatening the personal wellbeing. Finding a balance between the institutionalized elderly and the new context is a fundamental requirement for successful taking charge. The present work describes an intervention aimed at empowering the elderly's wellbeing in nursing home thanks to the creation of a dialogic space with a care provider. Within such a context the participants experienced self narration as a space for sense making and emotion regulation and as an opportunity for care through relationship.

Abstract

Transition to nursing home represents a challenge for the individual resources and a turmoil in the relationship between the person and his/her context, threatening the personal wellbeing. Finding a balance between the institutionalized elderly and the new context is a fundamental requirement for successful taking charge. The present work describes an intervention aimed at empowering the elderly's wellbeing in nursing home thanks to the creation of a dialogic space with a care provider. Within such a context the participants experienced self narration as a space for sense making and emotion regulation and as an opportunity for care through relationship.
