Although elders prefer independent, community living, both urban and rural elders face serious challenges to maintaining independence. Increasingly elders relocate to congregate living facilities (CLF) to remain independent and in the community. A longitudinal study of elderly women who moved to CLF revealed three distinct relocation transition styles (RTS): Full Integration, Partial Integration, and Minimal Integration. Qualitative analyses revealed three major factors -appraisal of the move, preparation for the move, and relocation-related social support - that differentiated the RTS. Quantitative analyses revealed that self-esteem, depressive symptoms, and quality of life scores also differentiated the RTS. The purpose of this mixed-methods cross-sectional study was to describe and compare the RTS of recently moved Midwestern older men to the RTS of women found in the prior study. The Nursing Model of Transitions provided the conceptual framework for both studies. Four structured measures - a Demographic Information Form, Rosenberg's Self-Esteem Scale, the Geriatric Depression Scale, and the Ferrans' Quality of Life Index - were administered to a purposive sample of 30 older men. A subsample of 10 men was interviewed using a semi-structured interview guide. Transcripts of the individual in-depth interviews were coded, analyzed, and compared with the findings of the previous study with women. The men's quantitative data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and independent t-tests to compare with the previous findings of women. This study was an essential step in a program of research that will develop and test interventions to enhance quality of life in elders who are relocating in increasing numbers to CLF. AN: MN030306
