New Models of Care – diversification and meeting new needs

24 Feb 2021
Residential & Home Care

The demand for social care is rapidly rising. But the social care market is still dominated by traditional approaches to commissioning and provision – leading to tight margins and variable quality in both the care home and domiciliary sectors.  

The next generation of care consumers want more choice and control. They want flexible, compassionate, person-centred care that can be delivered in a wide range of settings. This might be in their own homes or newly developed, bespoke accommodation; it might be from PAs based in their existing communities, or within a carefully designed new grouping in a new location.

Against this backdrop of tight funding, some innovative models are emerging. But there are barriers to progress. Our panel of experts will discuss new approaches to delivering social care. They will consider both the hurdles and enablers. What’s the role of commissioning, technology and the new Integrated Care Systems in progress? How do we truly empower care consumers and promote their independence? How do we encourage sustainability for innovators? Will it depend on sectoral reform?
