Finding Nana: New book to tackle family concerns over care homes

A book has been launched to help children navigate the emotional journey when an elderly relative moves into a care home.


Finding Nana, follows Ellie as she visits her grandmother in a care home for the first time.

Author Jenni Bacon said: “It’s about what happens for Ellie when she realises that her special place is not nana’s house it’s actually where nana is”.

Charity care provider, Methodist Homes (MHA), which launched the book in Croydon, said it hoped it would answer some of the common questions and concerns children might have.
