Nursing Home Transition

Abilities in Motion's Nursing Home Transition Program provides intense support and assistance to nursing home residents that wish to leave a nursing facility and move back home to the community and live a life of independence.

We are available to provide assistance with securing and establishing housing, coordinating accessible home modifications, training for independent living and the providing of health and medical services through connections to home and community based services.  Funding may be available to help with one time expenses such as security deposits, essential furnishings and moving expenses.  We also offer peer support and community reintegration education.
Abilities in Motion directs the Nursing Home Transition Program in Berks, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh and Northampton counties.
