ENRICH Wales: Studies now recruiting

Enabling Research in Care Homes (ENRICH Cymru) network in Wales is co-hosted by the Centre for Ageing and Dementia Research, and the Wales School for Social Care Research at Swansea University.  The aim of ENRICH Cymru is to improve the lives of residents and staff in Care Homes across Wales by developing and facilitating a network of ‘research ready’ Care Homes. The network promotes the exchange of research ideas and knowledge, and fosters the co-creation of research relevant to the current issues in the Care Home sector.

The network officially launched in Wales in 2018. There are currently 19 homes registered in the network across North and South Wales and we aim to recruit more homes into the network this year.   We are also launching a regular newsletter, which will be sent to homes registered in the network and to other interested parties.  The first edition is in preparation and the newsletter will provide care homes and others with all the latest developments in the network, as well as the latest research findings which matter to issues in the Welsh care home sector, and updates from the studies that care homes have taken part in.

ENRICH Cymru is now helping recruit for the following studies:

  • EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF INTERGENERATIONAL ACTIVITIES ON RELATIONSHIP CENTRED CARE AND CARE OUTCOMES IN CARE HOMES (Swansea University are recruiting care homes and schools for this study).  Contact details: Kate Howson, email: k.e.howson@swansea.ac.uk or telephone 07930240425.
  • EXAMINING THE LEARNING PROCESSES AND PREFERENCES OF PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA AND PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES AND DEMENTIA (Bangor University).  Contact details: Zoe Lucock, email: psp8f4@bangor.ac.uk

Lansiwyd y rhwydwaith yn swyddogol yng Nghymru yn 2018. Ar hyn o bryd mae 19 o gartrefi cofrestredig yn y rhwydwaith ar draws Gogledd a De Cymru a bwriadwn recriwtio mwy o gartrefi i’r rhwydwaith eleni. Rydym hefyd yn lansio cylchlythyr rheolaidd, a anfonir i gartrefi cofrestredig yn y rhwydwaith ac i bartion eraill â diddordeb. Mae’r rhifyn cyntaf yn cael ei baratoi a bydd y cylchlythyr yn darparu datblygiadau diweddaraf yn y rhwydwaith i gartrefi’r henoed ac eraill, yn ogystal â darganfyddiadau ymchwil diwethaf sydd o bwys i faterion yn y sector cartref gofal yng Nghymru, a diweddariadau o astudiaethau y mae cartrefi gofal wedi bod yn rhan ohonynt.

Ar hyn o bryd mae ENRICH yn helpu i recriwtio ar gyfer y prosiectau canlynol:

  • GWERTHUSO EFFAITH GWEITHGAREDDAU RHWNG CENEDLAETHAU AR OFAL YN YMWNEUD GYDA PHERTHYNAS A CHANLYNIADAU GOFAL MEWN CARTREFI GOFAL (Mae Prifysgol Abertawe yn recriwtio cartrefi gofal ac ysgolion ar gyfer yr astudiaeth yma).  Kate Howson e-bost: k.e.howson@swansea.ac.uk neu ffoniwch 07930240425.
  • ARHOLI’R PROSESAU DYSGU A BLAENORIAETHAU POBL GYDA DEMENTIA A PHOBL GYDAG ANABLEDDAU DEALLUSOL A DEMENTIA (Prifysgol Bangor). Zoe Lucock, e-bost: psp8f4@bangor.ac.uk

Os yr ydych yn ymwybodol o unrhyw gartrefi’r henoed sy’n dymuno ymuno â’r rhwydwaith, byddwn yn ddiolchgar iawn petaech yn medru gyrru’r ffurflen gais amgaeedig ymlaen iddynt. Yr un peth, os ydych yn adnabod unrhyw sefydliadau neu academyddion eraill efallai byddai am dderbyn newyddion diweddar am ddatblygiadau ENRICH ac ymchwil cartref gofal yng Nghymru.

Os oes gennych unrhyw ymholiadau y dymunwch eu trafod, cysylltwch gyda Stephanie Watts ym Mhrifysgol Abertawe, teleffon 01792 602034, e-bost: stephanie.watts@swansea.ac.uk.
