Alongside a programme of inspirational talks, The Future of Care Conference is also set to host two engaging panel debates; giving delegates the chance to discuss current topics and have their questions answered by those at the forefront of the industry on Tuesday 19th March at The King’s Fund in London.

Featuring a panel of leading experts from across the care sector, the first debate of the day is titled ‘Transforming the Care Sector – Innovation as a Catalyst for Change’. This will involve a discussion about how the sector can embed a culture of technology and innovation to drive positive change, and will examine how best to harness new technology in a way that works for both patients and practitioners.

Later in the day, the second debate will focus on ‘Recruitment and Retention in the Care Home Sector’, which is a particularly relevant topic at the moment following the recent launch of the government’s Every Day is Different campaign, which attempts to recruit thousands more young people into working in care. The panel debates aim to give visitors the chance to discuss current issues and any challenges they might be facing in their own care businesses with industry experts.

Chaired by BBC broadcaster and dementia charity founder, Sally Magnusson, the conference will also feature a full programme of speaker sessions throughout the day. These will be kicked off by Sue Howard from Care Quality Commission (CQC), with her presentation on ‘Quality Adult Social Care Services – Meeting the Needs of a Changing Population’, which will look at how the sector can ensure people are receiving care that is consistently safe, effective and high quality. The speaker line-up also includes Chief Executives and Directors from Care England, Alzheimer’s Society, Anchor, National Care Forum, Age UK and many more.

The conference will end with a fascinating talk from Frank van Dillen, who will present a case study on his pioneering Dementia Village, Hogeweyk, based in the Netherlands; a specially built care facility that allows dementia residents to manage their own households (including buying groceries in the village market, visiting the theatre or local parks, and more) – all under the supervision of specially trained care staff. Frank will discuss how the definition of ‘health’ is subject to change; the need for different living environments to choose from, and what such an environment means for quality of life.
