Practical Promise: Making the vision of home care real is about addressing the issues that are impacting on Scottish Care members right now. Our Conference, Exhibition and Awards is the only event in Scotland to focus solely on the Care at Home and Housing Support sector.
On Friday 18 May hundreds of delegates will be coming along to the Marriott in Glasgow to hear insightful and relevant speakers and participate in topical insight sessions. There are still a few remaining tickets available – if you’d like to come along please use the buttons below to view the full programme and book your place.
On the day we’ll be hearing more from Scottish Care Development Worker Anne McDonald on Self Directed Support in the Highlands.
Ahead of the event, Anne said:
“I met Norma when working on the Getting It Right With Older People Project, increasing the use of SDS by older people in the Highlands. Norma, who received SDS option 2, is passionate about the potential for SDS to change older people’s lives. In the short film; Norma’s Guide to SDS Option 2, she talks about the difference it has made to her. Before her SDS package was set up Norma spent much of her time in bed, with long hospital stays when her health deteriorated. Now she can access the specialist physiotherapy support she needs, get out in the garden, do some of her own housework and cooking, and hang out with the youths at the local skatepark. Norma has also contributed to a Scottish Care SDS information booklet for older people in Highland; 7 Self-Directed Support Suggestions - advice from older people who receive SDS to others who are new to SDS; ‘what we wish we had known at the start’.”
We look forward to getting more details from Anne and viewing Norma’s film this Friday May 18 at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow.
