  • The UK events industry has been hit with an unprecedented year following the COVID-19 pandemic. The good news is that the UK’s event industry is gearing up to help kickstart the economy and the Home Care Expo is proud to be a part of this.
  • Knowing that when you enter into a profession you are going to face significant risks is very different to entering a profession, and then being called upon to take unprecedented risks. This is why today, I am applauding all of my fellow Allied Health Professionals and other healthcare professionals dedicated to combating COVID 19-Coronavirus pandemic in all areas of health and social care.

  • Real care workers shining a spotlight on a career in care

    26 Feb 2020 Home Instead Senior Care
    A home care company has launched a campaign showcasing its workers as the ‘real faces of care’ to drive new people into the sector.
  • Growing a homecare business can be a challenge, especially when opportunities for local authority contracts only arise every 3-5 years. The impact of losing out on a business-critical contract can be far-reaching – if there are plans to expand and grow a care company, strategic tendering is all part of the picture. 
  • Healthcare workers at Christmas

    13 Dec 2019 Hannah Grenfell
    As friends and families join together for Christmas parties, carol concerts and sit down to festive meals, healthcare workers are hard at work providing high-quality care for patients. The holiday season can be overwhelming and stressful for most, let alone for NHS workers who are under immense pressure.
  • More people today are missing out on the vital care and support they both deserve and need. In 2018, an estimated 1.4 million people around the UK were living with unmet care needs, a staggering increase of 20% in just two years. Not only this, in an analysis carried out by Age UK, delayed hospital discharges due to a lack of social care cost the NHS over £500 a minute.
  • Following the success of the inaugural Home Care Awards on May 24, the Home Care Expo extension to the Dementia and Care Show is welcoming the Awards as part of the whole care at home scene.
  • The Princess Royal Training Awards, now in their fourth year, celebrate exceptional training and development programmes across the country.
  • Six high-profile celebrities including Vicky McClure, Rhod Gilbert and Sir Tony Robinson are supporting Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walks in September and October to raise vital funds for dementia research and support. They are urging the public to unite against dementia by signing up and walking in celebration of a family member, friend, or colleague affected by the condition.

  • It has been reported that up to six out of 10 people with dementia say they experience loneliness and isolation. This is why during Dementia Action Week, #AskUsAnything was launched. To encourage people to start talking, and include people living with dementia into their everyday conversations.
  • With over 350,000 older people receiving home care in the UK (Wittenberg and Hu 2015) and the demand on a carer’s time increasing, there is a continuous need for home care agencies to look at ways to become more efficient in delivering high quality care.
  • Mental Health Matters

    24 Apr 2020 Josh Hopkins
    Mental Health Awareness Week was founded by the Mental Health Foundation and will take place from the 13th-19th May 2019. The Mental Health Foundation has collected great knowledge over the past 60 years which has been down to their rigorous research and practical studies; knowledge that has been used to pioneer change and challenge the status quo or tackle difficult or under-researched issues. It was created to raise awareness for topics such as: stress, relationships, loneliness, altruism, sleep, alcohol, and friendship.
  • An analysis from The King’s Fund found that since 2015/16, the number of working age adults in England asking for some form of care has risen by four per cent to over 23,000 people. The number of elderly has also increased, leading to over 1.8m requests for adult social care, this is up two per cent since 2015/16.
  • Following the latest delay to the social care green paper, a campaigner for the introduction of an adult social care voucher scheme is calling on backbench MPs to put pressure on the government to prioritise the social care green paper.
