RCN Foundation Care Homes Conference
Monday, 23 September 2019
Royal College of Nursing, 20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G 0RN
Sponsored by HC One
With nearly half a million older people living in nursing and residential homes within the UK, the independent care sector employs over 40,000 registered nurses.
This is a sector beset by challenges, including high rates of nursing vacancies and turnover, increasing fragility within the sector, no defined career pathway and no specific training requirements. Yet working within such a demanding setting has meant that nurses are developing innovation, interesting new experiences and different ways of working.
Over the past five years, the RCN Foundation has sought to focus on these issues by implementing a grant programme aimed at supporting and strengthening nursing, and improving patient care, within the care home sector.
This summit will explore and highlight the many ways that the nursing team continues to achieve excellent outcomes for residents within care homes.
Following the summit, we will be hosting:
The joy of sex beyond 70
23 Sep 2019 18:00 - 20:00

"It’s not always about sex. Sometimes the best intimacy is where you lay back and laugh at silly things, hold each other and enjoy each other’s company."
“They like to have someone to come over or to go shopping with ... but they don’t want to get married, they just want a “booty” call!”
