The Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo – a hotly-anticipated event dedicated to inspiring business growth and a sustainable social care model – has opened its doors at the NEC Birmingham.
The two-day event will bring together thousands of social care providers, suppliers, charities and professional bodies under one roof.
During the show, seven seminar theatres will host over 100 talks from leaders in the sector, offering learning opportunities for visitors to apply when they return to work.
Each theatre will have a distinct focus, from business growth, technology and innovation to training and care development.
Highlights for the home care sector include a talk from Bridget Warr, outgoing chief executive of the UK Homecare Association. She’ll discuss key factors in providing quality home care services to support people with dementia.
Dr Jamie Wilson, a former NHS dementia specialist and CEO of live-in care platform Hometouch, will also be in attendance to talk about how technology, data and a focus on dementia prevention can help relieve the social care burden.
Meanwhile, masterclasses run by everyLife Technologies, Quality Compliance Systems and Learning Curve Group will offer expert advice on preparing for inspections, achieving an ‘Outstanding’ rating, retaining the best staff and engaging the current workforce to guarantee the best care possible.
There’ll also be the chance to see first-hand the impact that Artificial Intelligence and robotics are having on the industry.
To top all that off, more than 300 suppliers, from training specialists and workwear providers to software developers and communication systems manufacturers, will gather in the exhibition hall.
Social care organisations and charities, including Alzheimer’s Society, Care England and Care Association Alliance, will also exhibit.
The exhibition will take place on March 26-27 in hall 19 at the NEC.
