This mixed-methods study classified new residents in an ALF for frailty and explored each resident’s occupational needs upon their transition to the ALF. Results revealed a spectrum of personal narratives, functional abilities, and psychosocial needs among new residents. Findings implicate the need for standardized data collection upon admission, followed by program development or refinement, to best meet the needs of new ALF residents.
