Welcome to the July Care Show Bulletin. In this edition, I am delighted to announce the launch of The Care Summer Series; a digital event on the 10th and 11th August, where we are working with the team behind Health+Care and The Care Workers Charity to bring key debates impacting the care sector, new innovations to help the future of all providers and the chance for everyone to come together… digitally.

Speaking of Innovation, we also explore how Encore Care Homes have created a host of activities to help residents, family and staff boost health and wellness, and how apetito have created a new concept of an innovative mobile presentation suite which has been specially developed and fitted out to offer care homes the opportunity to enjoy socially distanced presentations and food tastings.
