Care Roadshows is hoping next year will reflect the success of its UK-wide shows after what it has deemed to be a highly successful year.
Shows will again feature in locations including London, Cardiff, Glasgow, Birmingham and Liverpool.
This year’s roadshows kicked off in Glasgow where Rami Okasha from Care Inspectorate went into detail regarding the new National Care Standards and the key principles that will apply across all social care and health provisions in Scotland.
The seminar gave advice on how the new approaches to inspection of regulated services can be implemented in different settings.
Moving down the country, Liverpool visitors experienced a workshop presented by Happy Days Dementia Workshop & Nostalgic Design. The workshop comprised of sharing tips on social engagement, themed activities and nostalgic environments for all care services – a key feature following the recent news of dementia being the leading cause of death in the UK.
The next stop for Care Roadshows saw the highest number of visitors attend since the show began in 2011. Villa Park Stadium in Birmingham featured Sheila Scott OBE from National Care Association along with Alzheimer’s Society who delivered a discussion leading on own experiences regarding dementia care across the UK.
In Cardiff, David Francis from Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) delivered a seminar focusing on the changes to regulation, inspection and enforcement.
