About this event
An estimated 426,000 people are currently living in approximately 17,000 nursing or residential homes, many of whom have complex medical and biopsychosocial needs. Our ageing society demands a fundamental shift in how health and care are delivered. With the growing need for more integrated working across several sectors to support older people, care homes could play a critical role.
To reduce hospital bed use and improve quality of life for those living in care homes, the NHS needs to work in partnership with providers and commissioners of adult social care to develop integrated systems of shared care and support.
With the Care Act now in force, and Enhanced health in care homes included as a new model in the NHS five year forward view, this timely conference explored how local areas can join up services for people living in care homes.

Five years ago we started constructing Actualised Living for Home From Home Care, the platform for every necessary program in complex social care – HR through to care delivery. Connecting everyone through collaborative working, job satisfaction, ‘command and control’ overviews, it increases financial and patient outcomes. We have started to structure big data, incorporating governance, detailed expectations, fairness and total transparency. Now we are creating the ‘brain’, the Actualised Rota which through risk analysis, will take the platform to a new level – predictability. Next – disruptive innovation with partners creating new hybrid business models that will alter the status quo.
