    The residential care market is facing significant challenges. Local authority cuts have led to the underfunding of adult social care, with research suggesting that the market contracted by 1400 care homes between 2012 and 2017. The average fee paid by the local authority for a care home resident is falling short of the real costs of care by more than £100 a week. Self-funding residents are having to fill the gap, which is estimated to be £1 billion in 2017/18. Furthermore, business costs are rising for care homes with the National Living Wage hitting £7.83 per hour in April 2018. However, innovative providers are making the most of the self-funding market and successful new models of care have emerged. Our panel will discuss what approaches are working 1)  both in terms of quality of care and profitability 2) and offer advice to the audience on the hallmarks of high performance.

    A year ago if you’d said that an app could replace medication, you’d have been laughed at. In fact we were. But that’s changing, as even the NHS is recognising the potential that apps can make to a care strategy, rendering it more person centred than conventional treatment. Apps, such as RemindMeCare, impact on activity, music, cognitive stimulation and physical therapies using gamification and social engagement, whilst monitoring outcomes, to improve wellbeing.

    Technology now touches every aspect of care, and many care businesses are looking to technology to strengthen their performance. But, during this period of workforce challenge, are they doing it for the right reasons? Care is about human contact and empathy, though some seem to see new technologies as a way of cutting costs and replacing staff. Others are implementing digital solutions to simply raise the quality of their services. Hear from leading providers who have embraced the potential for technology in their everyday service provision and their organisational practice. They will consider the reasoning behind new technologies, and discuss the pros and cons of different approaches.
