Priorities for older people’s care in Wales - funding, new models and working towards a ‘dementia friendly Wales’

Morning, Wednesday, 20th June 2018

Central Cardiff

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar is bringing together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss priorities for older people’s care in Wales.


It will be an opportunity to assess the implementation of the National Dementia Strategy, which is due to be published soon, and the next steps for dementia care - particularly in meeting the needs of patients and the wider circle of service users, including carers.


Delegates will consider opportunities for improving the regulation and governance of older people’s care, and the future for financing it, as the Finance Committee at the National Assembly carry out an inquiry into the cost of caring for an ageing population, focusing on demands on social care services.


Further sessions look at the development of new models of care for older people, in light of the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care, which is expected before the end of 2017 - as well as key issues around care delivery, public involvement, skills and the workforce, technology, innovation and governance.


Attendees will also discuss the future role of different bodies - including health boards, local authorities and private care organisations - in the effective delivery of services.
