Liverpool Care Show - A Meeting of Minds


Care professionals in and around Liverpool will see the return of Care Roadshows to the spectacular venue of Aintree Racecourse on the 3rd June this year, where entry is once again free.  Educational seminars, a variety of exhibitors and cookery demonstrations will keep visitors updated with the ideas and changes within the healthcare sector while the networking areas provide the perfect place for professionals to connect and share their experiences. 

Exhibition stands will be showcasing a wide range of products and services targeted at the healthcare sector from care plan systems and medicines management to laundry equipment and moving and handling solutions.  Discuss the needs of your care setting, try out products on the day and see what’s new to the market that can help you develop your care home. 

Throughout the day bite sized seminars will be taking place, which are free of charge to attend. Starting the day off, a dementia design focused seminar from the DSDC will look at how to make a care environment dementia friendly to help reduce the trauma of moving from home.  It will consider the impact that an environment has on dementia patients and will look at some simple principles of interior design to work with this.

The CQC will speak in the afternoon about recent organisational restructures within the CQC and the latest changes to the methodologies for the inspection of adult social care services.  This seminar will be followed by Sheila Scott from the National Care Association discussing the topic ‘Are you ready for the Care Bill?’.

Since nutrition plays such an important part in healthcare, Care Roadshows will host three cookery demonstrations throughout the day from the Cordon Vert Cookery School.  Chef Alex Connell will demonstrate simple meal ideas suitable for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.  A seminar from apetito will also look at food within care settings and the issue of how you create nutritious, appealing meals for those with swallowing difficulties.  Don’t miss the chance to try apetito’s food for yourself at the show, as the proof is in the pudding!  

Ablyss Systems will be exhibiting at the show on Stand 20 and will have their CMS software available for demonstrations throughout the day.   We will be there from 9.30am-3pm and hope to see you there.
 
Entry, seminars and workshops are all free.
