The experiences of adaptation to relocation of institutionalized elderly using personal resources are investigated. This study aims to understand how the elderly adapt in an institution or nursing home with only the available personal resources that they have. It then study aims to identify the different kinds of experiences the elderly have when it comes to relocation and adaptation, as well as the resources used and how it was used in adapting to the new environment. To investigate the problem, eight elderly from one institution were interviewed. Results show that the experiences of the elderly in adapting in the institution are: maintaining health, fitting in, and keeping themselves productively occupied. Resources used in adapting were found to be personal characteristics and provided support. Lastly, results also found out that practicing values and utilizing provided help were the ways in which the elderly uses their resources. The elderly uses, then, these resources as a way of optimizing their capabilities and compensating for their disabilities.
