COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for sheltered, supported and extra-care housing. Protecting vulnerable or ‘at risk’ residents, redeploying staff and procuring PPE has become a priority to ensure service and business continuity.
Join Westminster Insight for our inaugural Sheltered Housing Digital Conference to hear from leading local authorities, housing associations
and third sector organisations
on the impact of COVID-19 to residents, costs, and lettings.
Our afternoon keynote session will be delivered by, Jonathan Walters, Deputy Chief Executive from the Regulator of Social Housing,
on how a stronger regulatory framework could improve the longer-term quality and condition
of sheltered housing and retirement schemes.
Consider the challenges of housing an ageing population including integrating health and social care, accessibility, and flexibility for residents.
Tim Hoyle from Central Bedfordshire Council will share initiatives to help improve the standard of living for older people and people with disabilities, enhancing their quality of life.
Understand how COVID-19 has accelerated the implementation of technology
in sheltered housing, explore how innovation could help to boost the health, well-being, and independence
of your residents. Sheltered housing providers such as Anchor Hanover and Riverside
will discuss how to identify people at risk of social isolation and develop person-centred interventions to reduce loneliness.
