About

Enhanced health in care homes is one of the new care models set out in the NHS five year forward view. Eighteen months on from the launch of the six vanguards, this conference will assess their progress in providing older people with better, more joined-up care and rehabilitation services.

As part of our wider programme of work on improving services for older people, this event will examine the critical role that care homes play in boosting cross-agency collaboration to provide more integrated and personalised care for older people.

Hear from the vanguards

You'll hear from the following sites on how they've improved care and rehabilitation services:

  • Connecting Care – Wakefield District

  • Sutton Homes of Care

  • Airedale & Partners

  • Gateshead Care Homes Project.
