Scottish Care is absolutely delighted to announce that we have been selected by the Global Ageing Network to host the Biennial Global Ageing Conference in Scotland in the autumn of 2023.
Following conferences in London, Montreux, Toronto and Seoul in 2021 we are honoured that the decision has been taken to allow Scotland to host this event which will be run by Scottish Care in association with the National Care Forum from England and Wales.
The event will bring together several hundred international delegates and leaders in ageing services, housing, research, technology and design.
GAN seeks to bring together experts from around the world, lead education initiatives and provide a place for innovative ideas in older person care and support to be born. They seek to improve best practices in aged care so that older people everywhere can live healthier, stronger, more independent lives.
Over the next two years an organising committee will be working hard to ensure this event is a success and we will keep you updated as we make progress.
Dr Donald Macaskill, Scottish Care CEO said:
“We are absolutely delighted in the trust placed in our team in Scotland by GAN. We look forward to inviting guests from across the world by offering not only Scottish hospitality, but we hope and inspiring event which showcases the best of dignified, rights-based care and support for the older citizens of our world.”
Katie Smith Sloan, Executive Director, Global Ageing Network and President & CEO, LeadingAge said:
“The Global Ageing Network is thrilled to be joining Scottish Care in 2023 for a joint conference, bringing aged care leaders from around the world together to share innovations, challenges and ideas. Our common mission is to ensure the highest quality of care, services and life for older adults, wherever they live. I look forward to all we will learn together.”
