Enhancing life in care homes: events for care home managers

My Home Life Cymru is running a series of three free events for care home managers in June to showcase the successful Age Cymru Burdett Trust Grant project. The events will give care homes the opportunity to see how the projects have enhanced the quality of life of residents, relatives and staff.

There will be opportunities to learn from the projects and gain support by talking to the project leads.
