Abstract
This capstone project presents a conceptually grounded, methodologically appropriate and logistically feasible Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funding proposal. By examining key factors and influential actors involved in the decision to relocate into an assisted living facility (ALF), the proposed study will provide insight into and a rich description of the decision making process as it unfolds. Presented in the format of a CIHR pilot study grant, the proposal details a qualitative research plan utilizing pre-move observations and post-move interviews to examine relocation into two public and two private ALFs in Vancouver. A project budget and justification is included along with materials related to the research protocol (informed consent forms, observation guide, interview questions, research timeline, etc). To provide context, preceding the CIHR proposal is a chapter with an extended literature review focused on later life relocation and a chapter on methodology highlighting the salient points of the different methods selected for this study.
