Essential Care: the critical role of care homes

Scottish Care’s annual Care Home Conference, Exhibition & Awards will take place on Friday 15th November 2019 at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.  Speakers, activities and insight sessions are curated specifically for providers and partners in this field.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Scottish Care’s Care Home Conference & Exhibition, and is kindly sponsored by Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank.

The event is the largest of its kind in the UK to specifically focus on care home support.

Whilst organised by Scottish Care, this conference is open to all sectors, organisations and individuals with an interest in older people’s care.

The conference contains a mixture of key contributions. Through creative, business-focused, practical and policy sessions, the event will focus on the significant role care home services play in ensuring individuals are able to remain connected to their communities and the criticality of their involvement in shaping Scotland’s future health and social care system.

The conference will directly address current challenges in the sector including workforce shortages, Brexit and the future of the National Care Home Contract. There will also be a range of innovative approaches and tech products showcased to help people in their every day care practice.

With 450+ delegates attending it will be an excellent networking opportunity for those in the sector, who will get the chance to engage in many learning opportunities including:

  • An interview with the Cabinet Secretary for Health & Sport, Ms Jeane Freeman MSP
  • Designing future care
