In association with the Clydesdale Bank
18th November 2016
Hilton Hotel, Glasgow
“Care Homes at the Heart”
Scottish Care is a membership organisation and the representative body for independent social care services in Scotland.
The Scottish independent social care sector contributes to:
• The employment of nearly 100,000 people
• The employment of over 5,000 nurses
• The provision of 83% of care home places in Scotland
Scottish Care’s 17th Annual Care Home, Conference and Exhibition takes place on Friday 18 November 2016 at the Hilton Hotel, William St, Glasgow.
Over 450 day delegates are expected to attend the conference including care providers, local authority, Care Inspectorate, NHS and Scottish Government colleagues. This event is the only one of its kind in Scotland specifically for the care home sector and, whilst organised by Scottish Care, is very much a cross-sector event.
The title of this year’s conference is “Care Homes at the Heart”.

Care homes are premised on providing compassionate care and support to those who require it. For those that live there, care homes are not a care setting but people’s own homes; places filled with love, laughter and kindness.
What’s more, the integration of health and social care means the role of care homes is changing but of no less importance to the future of care provision in Scotland. They are at the centre of communities, local planning, innovative practice and the whole health and care spectrum of support, and need to be recognised as such.
The conference will reflect all of these themes and offer an opportunity to learn, share, network and challenge.
We are doing things slightly differently this year, with best practice insight sessions planned for the morning to give a more varied and participative feel to the day. Delegates will have the opportunity to select one insight session to attend on the day.
We look forward to seeing you there.
