Delivering dignity - free conference planned for Oct 1

A free one-day conference on ensuring dignity for older people in health and social care is planned for 'Older People's Day' on October 1.

The conference, jointly organised by Age Cymru, the Older People's Commissioner for Wales and the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales, will take place at the Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells.

During the day there will be both plenary and workshop sessions to debate how social care and health providers can help older people maintain their dignity when they are receiving help from carers and health professionals.

Care Forum Wales will run a session explaining its Dignity In Care Toolkit - which provides useful, practical guidance on delivering dignity to social care recipients.

Other speakers will include Phyllis Preece of the National Pensioners' Convention Wales and the Older People's Commissioner for Wales, Sarah Rochira. 

Conference themes will include:


  • What dignity means to older people
  • Older people's right to dignity
  • Practical ways to deliver dignity
