Older People's Commissioner's Review of care homes on agenda at care conference

The 10th 'Annual Care Conference for Wales' will see the Older People's Commissioner for Wales, Sarah Rochira, discussing her review into the quality of life and care of older people in Wales' care homes.

The conference, which is being chaired by CFW's Mario Kreft, takes place on October 9 in Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff.

The Deputy Minister for Social Services, Gwenda Thomas, will also address the conference and CSSIW's David Francis will be speaking about the drive for improvement in the care sector and the opportunities to do so presented by the White Paper on Inspection and Regulation.

The conference is being organised by Caring Times in association with Care Forum Wales. The conference organisers say: "The long-term care sector in Wales is currently experiencing unprecedented change, creating a number of challenges to owners, operators and caring professionals.

"This conference will keep you up to date with legislation, training and inspection as well as giving time to focus on the future of your business. It will also provide an excellent opportunity to speak to fellow care professionals and a range of business professionals, to share and debate the issues currently facing us all.

"In an ever-changing environment the 2014 Conference will demonstrate there is a positive future and show how the next few years may look."
