LaterLife- Planning for the ageing population

With an increasingly ageing population meaning a soaring demand for care services, Paul Burstow, Minister of State for Care Services, has said that the "urgent reform of the social care system is at the top of our agenda". The new coalition government has made clear its intention to focus on reducing the budget deficit, and while the Spending Review has pledged an extra £2 billion for social care budgets by 2014-15, this may not be enough. What is the way forward for later life care?
In the autumn of this year, the Department of Health will publish a vision for social care reform, setting out ambitions for greater independence and choice for users of social care. The report from the Commission on the Funding of Care and Support will aim to answer the key question of how health and social care for the elderly should be paid for. Value for money is, of course, paramount.
At LATER LIFE: PLANNING FOR AN AGEING POPULATION, the future of health and social care for our elderly population will be considered by key speakers from across the sectors.

Speakers include:
SHAUN GALLAGHER
Director of Social Care Policy, Department of Health “A vision for social care reform”
Outlining the plan for social care reform, setting out ambitions for greater independence and choice for users of social care.

CLLR DAVID ROGERS
Chair, Community Wellbeing Board, Local Government Association “A local government perspective on progress in the provision of health and social care for the ageing population”
Discussing the huge role played by local authorities in later life care.

Further details of the programme can be found online.

Expert speakers will discuss the delivery of later life initiatives and their impact on the population, and analyse the strategies most likely to produce the desired result, culminating in a panel debate providing a forum for energetic dialogue and communication of insights from across the sector.
