Centre for Dementia seminar - ROAM study

Speaker: Amanda King (University of Nottingham, CLAHRC EM)

Title: Rehabilitation for Outdoor Activities and Mobility in Care Homes: The ROAM Study

Date: Thursday, 13 April 2017

Time: 11.30am – 12.30pm

Venue: Room A08, Institute of Mental Health, Triumph Road

Abstract: Care home residents should be supported to participate in meaningful activities in their preferred places, including outdoor spaces. Although outdoor engagement in greenspace is believed to be beneficial, the majority of residents stay indoors. Using a realist approach, this study is investigating what helps and gets in the way of residents’ garden use. Amanda will present an overview of the study and share some preliminary findings.
