By 2030, one in five people in the UK (21.8%) will be aged 65 or over.* It is vital that strategies are in place to ensure older people can access high-quality services.
Join us at Westminster Insight’s Improving Older People’s Services Conference to explore the current landscape of older people’s services, learning how to delivery high-quality and multi-agency services to maximise the impact on older people’s health and wellbeing.
Our conference will be split into 3 distinct areas: mental wellbeing, housing and tackling social isolation.
You’ll hear how local government initiatives can improve the experience of older people throughout all stages of their lives. Gain an understanding of how culture change within the health service can help to ensure the delivery of personalised mental health care in older adults. And learn from the Healthcare Inspectorate Wales on preventing falls through high-quality pathway care for older adults.
Our expert panellists will share insights and strategies into identifying older people at risk of facing difficulty accessing services, to ensure that they receive the care and support they require. Learn how preventive care can engage adults at risk of osteoporosis, and decrease the pressure placed on the health service by developing the condition.
Join your peers from the NHS, local government, housing, and the community and charity sector to explore innovation in older people’s services and strategies that will ensure that you will deliver high quality and sustainable services for our ageing population.
