Nursing and residential care homes in Wales can apply for grants to run new projects that encourage dignity and respect for residents.
The programme is offering awards of up to £10,000 for projects that can also demonstrate a relationship-centred approach and evidence-based practice.
John Moore, Manager of the My Home Life Cymru Programme at Age Cymru says:
“Dignity and respect are two basic requirements for anyone to maintain a good quality of life whilst living in a nursing or residential care home.
"We want to fund innovative projects that promote dignity and respect for care home residents and support the My Home Life Cymru ethos of relationship-centred care and evidence-based practice."
Nursing or allied care professionals working in a residential care home in Wales or care home managers in Wales can apply to the Burdett Trust and Age Cymru Grant Programme.
Grants of up to £10,000 are available - the closing date for applications is 7 February 2014.
Projects need to start by April 2014 and can take up to 12 months for completion.
