“Free online seminar: Developing a care partner policy: case studies from the NHS and social care

Thursday, 13 July. 13:00 – 14:30 (BST)

For many older adults who draw on health or social care, support from a loved one is essential to their health and wellbeing. The person who provides this support is often referred to a ‘care partner’ to denote how integral they are to the care of their friend or family member.

Researchers at King’s College London are hosting an online seminar series to explore the role of care partners in health and social care settings. Join us on 13 July to hear from NHS England about the development of their new care partner policy which will be released shortly for stakeholder engagement. We will also learn about how one group of care homes has actively worked alongside families to support the residents in their care.”
