Today (Friday 17 May) sees Scottish Care’s 13th Annual Care at Home & Housing Support Conference, Exhibition and Awards take place at the Marriott Hotel, Argyle Street, Glasgow.

Over 200 day delegates are attending including care providers, local authority, NHS, Scottish Government and regulatory colleagues.   This event is the only one of its kind in Scotland specifically for the homecare sector.

The title of this year’s conference is ‘Redressing the balance: the potential of home care” and the event is kindly sponsored by Quality Compliance systems. 

We are indisputably at an extremely challenging period in the care at home and housing support sector, and CEO Dr Donald Macaskill recognised this in his Address to delegates this morning.

Launching a briefing paper outlining the challenges, entitled ‘A Care Twilight Zone’, Donald revisited the 12 areas set out at last year’s conference and considered what has changed and what more needs done.
