Tell me more - care home resident engagement project
Covid-19 has been heartbreaking for many care home residents. Their families and friends have had limited time to see them and they have been severely affected by the effects of Covid-19.
The Tell Me More Project, funded by Welsh Government is all about reaching into care home settings and hearing from the residents so they can share their experiences and hopes for the future. Tell Me More has given us the most valuable insight to the lives of care home residents during the Covid pandemic. We’ve been privileged to be welcomed into the homes of the people who have been affected most by intermittent and extended lockdowns, continuous safety measures and restrictions and being separated from those they love.
The project recorded people’s voices via Zoom video and recoded resident’s faces in the form of 2D and 3D portraits. This short film brings together these two elements sharing these important views, stories, and insights with a wider audience.
Tell Me More launch
On 3 March 2022, we were delighted to launch our Tell Me More film. If you were unable to attend, you can watch the recording below.
Tell Me More report details key themes that featured in the conversations we had with people living in care homes during 2021, one of the most challenging times that care homes have experienced as a result of the global pandemic. It reflects the range of perspectives voiced by residents on care home life, through the restrictions that are in place because of regulation, guidance, or care home policy. It reflects the findings from conversation with 105 residents living in 22 care homes throughout Wales.
