Dementia patients with hearing loss in care homes

As part of the ORCHARD project, Dr Melanie Ferguson is collaborating with Prof Tom Dening and others to find out what approaches, aids and adaptations work best for people in care homes with dementia and hearing loss. The National Institute for Health Research recently published a blog post by Prof Tom Dening about the work. You can find this at: www.nihr.ac.uk/blogs/dementia-research-its-not-all-drug-trials/6813.
