- Care Homes of the Future
There is increasing concern about our ability as a society to provide care in the context of our ageing populations. This event asks how we can imagine future systems of care differently. If care homes are part of the answer how can they be redesigned to better fulfil the needs of our ageing populations? Are there other options for the care of older adults in our future cities and communities?
This event will bring together practitioners, policy makers and academics who will present their research and practice. The debate will then be opened up to the audience.
