Improving Older People’s Services Conference, Tuesday 20th November 2018, Central London

Guest of Honour: Anna Dixon, Chief Executive, Centre for Ageing Better

The demand for older people’s services is growing rapidly with an ever increasing ageing population. Predictions suggest that there will be over 2.2 million more over 65’s in 2027 than in 2017. With services already overburdened, long-term sustainable solutions need to be discovered.

Join our expert panellists to discuss the practical implications of the Government’s proposals for a sustainable solution to funding. Hear from Skills for Care about workforce requirements to support future needs and from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) about how regulation of services can help drive quality and improvement. Including case studies of what is already working well in housing, hospital admissions and patient flow, whole-person integrated care, supporting carers and enabling older people to live in their own homes for longer.

Expert speakers include:

  • Sharon Allen: CEO, Skills for Care
  • Jules Constantinou: President-elect, Institute and Faculty of Actuaries
  • Anna Dixon: Chief Executive, Centre for Ageing Better
