What does good care look like & how do we look after the carers? -15th October


What does good care look like & how do we look after the carers?

Living well and free from harm – how do we protect against physical, financial, emotional exploitation and abuse.
How do we protect those who need care and those who are the carers from harm? What does that harm look like? This is an exciting opportunity to hear from a broad range of specialists and should appeal to medical practitioners, social service managers, financial advisors and solicitors.

This will be an opportunity to meet a number of representatives from all corners of the care world and share knowledge, insight and ideas on the current care system.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and bring your own experiences to the debate!
