Project Summary

The WHELD well-being training intervention for care homes has shown benefits in two clinical trials by improving quality of life, mental health and reduced use of sedatives, and has been developed for virtual supervision. It will now be adapted to the COVID-19 context; an “implementation ready” programme will then be rolled out for care homes nation-wide.
