Volume one of the thesis is presented in three sections. Part one presents a mixed studies literature review exploring family involvement with care homes following placement of a person with dementia. The 26 included papers are presented according to methodology and research question which encompassed types of family involvement, influences on involvement, family involvement interventions and their outcomes for residents. This is followed by a discussion comparing the last decade of developments to an earlier seminal review on family involvement with care homes. Part two is an empirical paper reporting a study that investigated the feasibility of SettleIN, a staff led healthy adjustment intervention for new care home residents with dementia. The process of intervention development and mixed method results of stakeholder consultation are reported. This is followed by a description of the intervention trial and outcomes for feasibility and resident quality of life and mood. Part three provides a critical appraisal of the literature search and major research project. Methodological challenges encountered and decisions made in the process of undertaking both parts of the work are discussed. Key learning points are highlighted throughout and proposals are made for future research.
