The Home Care Expo will take place virtually next week, following the postponement of a physical event.
The conference will run alongside the Dementia, Care & Nursing Expo over two days – 9th and 10th of March.
Sessions will cover how home care software has transformed the way care workers work; how tech-enabled care has helped adults live independently in their own homes; the benefits of an intergenerational approach to care; and the significance of an uptick in digital communication.
There will also be a live roundtable discussion with Kate Terroni, chief inspector of Adult Social Care at the CQC.
The physical conference and exhibition is set to return on September 15-16.
It was initially due to take place on November 9-10, but was pushed back to March 9-10. However, organisers have recently been informed that the event can’t go ahead as planned.
In a statement published in January, event organiser ROAR B2B said: “We have been in consultation with various government departments and whilst the rollout of the vaccine has given the country much needed optimism, we have been advised that we will be unable to host the event in the Spring.
“The safety of our visitors, customers, partners and staff is paramount. We are confident that moving the event to September will enable us to run the safe, successful event the industry demands.”
