One of the biggest challenges in social care policy is the increasing needs of older people. The system is buckling under the pressure of an increasing aging population and the needs that go along with it. We have a funding crisis that is threatening the status quo, which itself is increasingly seen as impersonal and inadequate.
So is the solution to continue to throw money into the current system and plaster over the cracks in its inadequacy? Or should we be thinking more radically? Should we start again from first principles and look again both at how we treat adult social care and how we think about old age?
NLGN and PA Consulting’s Reimagining Old Age summit seeks to develop innovative ideas for the future of adult social care and reimagine a new future for old age. We bring together leading thinkers in the local government with a design session led by experienced artist facilitators to address the following challenges:
- Managing increasing pressure on the care system through increased demand and an ageing population
- Delivering radical transformation across the health and social care sector
- Creating public services that deliver for a happy, healthy and independent old age
This summit will not only feature a keynote address from Norman Lamb MP, Minister of state for Care and Support but will also feature interactive, facilitated sessions with the help of the Map Consortium to help us reimagine old age. This will be an exciting and imaginative event which should help all practitioners and policy makers to re-imagine care for our elderly and how we approach old age.
