Layman's description

This programme aims to develop and test a package of care to help people recover from delirium. The intervention will include physical exercises and activities to improve memory and emotional support. Following a feasibility study, 500 people with delirium will be identified to take part, half will be randomly chosen to receive the intervention and the others will receive usual care. At 3 months and 6 months they will be assessed to see if levels of independence, physical ability and cognition have improved. Cost effectiveness will also be evaluated.
