Care Homes Conference 2017: Caring for an ageing population
“People are not getting the care that they need and this needs to be tackled with immediate action.” - Professor Martin Green, Chief Executive of Care England
Underfunding and staff shortages are putting unprecedented pressure on the care home sector, according to the King’s Fund. Since 2010, closures have seen the number of care home places in the UK fall by 7%. A 6% reduction in fees received from local councils has come at a time when providers are already struggling to cope with the added cost of paying staff the new compulsory living wage. The social care precept, introduced in the 2015 Autumn Statement, has been taken up by 93% of local authorities. But the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services believes an additional £1.1 billion will be needed to meet the cost of caring for an ageing population. One in 20 care home workers come from European Economic Area countries and the Brexit vote has cast more uncertainty onto a sector that is already struggling to recruit and retain staff.
Join us for the Care Homes Conference 2017 where leading experts will reveal how to meet these challenges head on and explain how the sector can exploit the latest innovations to provide world class care.
