Components to creating a compliant care home & the dementia care & nursing home expo
The current care conundrum
Much has been made of the ‘care home timebomb’ in recent months. The analogy refers to the growing demand for care home beds; the care industry needs to generate another 50,000 beds within five years to adhere to a growing demand. To meet the demand, an extra 15,000 homes for older people need to be created every year – a criteria that is not being met.
Moves by the government to reform social care after its downgrade two-years ago have been taken, with Jeremy Hunt assuming the title of Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. Earlier this year the Department of Health and Social Care also confirmed that Caroline Dinenage will be the minister of state overseeing adult social care – you can see the Minister of State for Care speaking at the Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo.
What remains to be seen is how much difference the appointments will make; the impact of which can be evaluated when the green paper is released.
For example, delegating the role to a minister of state such as Caroline Dinenage, rather than a parliamentary under-secretary of state exemplifies how the government have elevated the importance of adult social care.
However, more needs to be done to improve the level of care and facilitate better resident outcomes through the industry.
Our elderly population is growing and along with it the number of people who need additional care.
