ENRICH: Enabling Research in Care Homes
Around 250,000 people with dementia live in Care homes. However, only a small amount of research is conducted in these settings. The Dementia and Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Network (DeNDRoN) would like to increase the amount of research from its current levels in order to improve the quality of life and quality of care for people with dementia and their families
What is in ENRICH?
This website is a simple, practical guide for researchers, Care home staff, research funders and research network staff. Developed by the Dementia and Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Network (DeNDRoN) it draws on work from the NIHR School for Social Care Research (SSCR). It provides information, tools, case studies and further resources for facilitating research in Care homes. Whilst focusing on dementia the toolkit has been designed to be applicable to other disease areas, and information provided can be used to support the promotion of all high-quality research.
