A packed day is planned for visitors to Care Roadshow Glasgow this April as the event returns to Hampden Park Stadium on Tuesday 21st. Not only will there be a range of dedicated care home suppliers on hand to offer information and advice about the latest products and services available, the event will also host a series of free informative seminars from leaders in the care sector.

Starting off the seminar sessions, Mary Hattie from the Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland will be speaking about Dignity and Respect at 10.30am and looking at recommendations for settings providing care for individuals with dementia.  At 11.30am, Lawrence Cowan from the Royal College of Nursing will explore future opportunities and challenges for nursing in delivering safe and effective care in care homes.


Afternoon seminars will include a talk from Jilly Polson from Dementia Services Development Centre at 12.45pm.  Jilly’s sessions will give an overview of the effects that good and poor design can have, particularly for people with dementia, and why it is essential for us all to consider the environment in the care and support we provide.

Heather Edwards, Dementia Consultant from the Care Inspectorate, will be presenting the final seminar at 2pm.  Heather will look at Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI) and how SOFI can be used to capture the experiences of people who use care services that are unable to provide feedback due to their cognitive or communication impairments.
