Much has been made of the ‘care home timebomb’ in recent months. The analogy refers to the growing demand for care home beds. The care industry needs to generate another 50,000 beds within five years to adhere to a growing demand. To meet the demand, an extra 15,000 homes for older people need to be created every year – a criteria that is not being met.
The Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo is the UK’s only free event dedicated to care home growth and achieving a sustainable social care model. Running alongside Naidex on the 25th & 26th April at NEC, Birmingham, this is a must attend for care home owners. Register for your free ticket here or call 0117 990 2097.
This event is an excellent platform that will help care homes to grow and deliver better outcomes to their residents. CPD accredited seminars will run throughout both days and will concentrate on many topics including: dementia care, the social care nursing shortfall and a new vision for social care. To discuss the opportunity to sponsor one of the seminar theatres, please contact 0117 990 2109.
Our keynote speakers, who have achieved and maintained an incredible rating and reputation, will provide unparalleled advice on how to obtain, among other topics, an outstanding rating from CQC. Speakers include: Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care at CQC; Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum; Caroline Baker, Director of Dementia Care at Barchester Healthcare; Professor Martin Green OBE of Care England and Sharon Allen OBE, CEO at Skills for Care.
Other highly-anticipated features include the Virtual Dementia Tour; the only scientifically and medically proven method of giving a person with a healthy brain an experience of what dementia might be like. Dubbed as a ‘must have’ training tool for care professionals, the Virtual Dementia Tour is helping care homes to update practices, reduce issues and improves the lives of their residents living with dementia.
As of the 1st January this year, new standards of apprenticeships replaced the adult social care frameworks. To help you reach these standards, Remit Health will host a free apprenticeships training masterclass that will run throughout both days and concentrate on important practices in apprenticeship training.
Alongside this, Quality Compliance Systems will also run a masterclass that will concentrate on preparing for your inspection. Using mock inspection toolkits and other useful compliance aids, you will learn to prepare for your next inspection in a positive, forward-thinking way. Whilst also learning how to provide evidence that your care home is aligned with the CQC’s Fundamental Standards.
