"I'm really pleased with our increased accrual (recruitment) to the PrOVIDe study, and I think this is due largely to the structured framework for engaging with care homes that working with the ENRICH project has provided."
Senior Research Nurse
"Research is a good idea. Anything looking into dementia is important to patients, staff carers and family, as it gives insight and lets them know what work is being done to change and improve dementia care; giving them hope."
Care Home Manager
"It is so important for people to get involved in research. If people don’t take part in research then we can’t improve treatments for future generations."
Former research manager for Bath Royal United Hospital
"Research being conducted in, and in collaboration with, care homes is important. More care homes signing up to the ENRICH 'Research Ready Care Home Network’ can support this."
