Glen Garrod: Speaking at the Home Care Expo Birmingham

Lincolnshire County Council

Glen Garrod

Is home care likely to thrive – thoughts on new approaches and the importance of a supportive policy context

By the time this event takes place we should have in the intervening period: a Green Paper on both Adult Care and, Prevention. There will also be a Spending Review and – hopefully – a decision taken on what succeeds the Better Care Fund. No doubt there will be other developments to influence what the future for home based services looks like. This session aims to explore these and their impact upon this critical area of social care.
