The demand for older people’s services is growing rapidly with an ever increasing ageing population. Estimates suggest that there will be over 2.2 million more over 65’s in 2027 than in 2017. With services already overburdened, long-term sustainable solutions need to be discovered.

This conference offers delegates the opportunity to discover more about the Government’s plans to reform the sector and to provide sustainable support for older people through the Green Paper proposals. Join our expert panellists to discuss the impact the Government’s ambitions will have on services and how they can be implemented on a practice level. Hear from Skills for Care about workforce requirements to support future needs and from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) about how regulation of services can help drive quality and improvement.

Including case studies of what is already working well in housing, hospital admissions and patient flow, whole-person integrated care, supporting carers and enabling older people to live in their own homes for longer.

Join colleagues from across health, social care, housing and the voluntary and community sector to explore the changing landscape of older people’s services and how you can adapt to be at the forefront of providing improved and sustainable services for our ageing population.
