The social care industry in the UK has been stretched to the limit over the last few years. This is down to a multitude of reasons, two of which being restricted budgets and an understaffed workforce. These issues are likely to remain for the foreseeable future as the number of people aged 85+ is set to double in the next 25-30 years, and the care industry remains uncertain on the state of the workforce after Brexit.
In order to offer effective, person-centered care for every person in the UK that needs it, the social care industry needs to grow and become self-sustaining. Events throughout the calendar are vital in achieving this, and the Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo leads the way as the UK’s most dynamic social care event dedicated to inspiring business growth and a sustainable social care model.
The event will take place on the 17th & 18th of March 2020 at the NEC, Birmingham and gives you, the visitor, the knowledge required to be able to embrace the changes that will allow you to continue providing the highest level of care possible. Join 5,000 other social care business owners, senior management teams and local councils at the show by registering yourself for a free ticket at www.carehomeexpo.co.uk.
The Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo prides itself on the content it offers its visitors. One of the highlights is the fascinating Virtual Dementia Tour; the only scientifically proven method of giving someone a true to life experience of what dementia might be like. How can we ever truly empathise with someone living with dementia, if we cannot experience the condition? The Virtual Dementia Tour gives visitors the experience of empathy, of understanding what those living with dementia feel day to day. The tool is a unique perspective that gives social care professionals visiting the exhibition a greater understanding of dementia, and what they can do to improve their residents’ lives.
Another feature of the show is the CQC Inspector Hub. The CQC will be running the two-day inspector hub, a one stop shop that provides an opportunity to receive one-to-one advice from CQC inspectors and registration inspectors. You will need to pre-book your appointment on the Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo website in order to guarantee seeing the CQC professionals, so make sure you do it as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Finally, a new feature for the 2020 Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo is the Activities Arena. In association with NAPA, live demonstrations from activities providers will run throughout both days in the Activities Arena. Explore a range of interactive activities that are not only proven to maintain and improve your residents health and mental wellbeing, but also fun initiatives ready for you to try out yourself and introduce into your care home!

Finally, the Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo Awards will be making a return for our 2020 show. These awards help recognise and praise the cutting edge products, services and expertise currently available in the sector. There are four awards up for grabs, given to the companies with the most original, cost-effective products or services.
The Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo are partnered with a collection of the biggest names in the industry. By being partnered with organisations such as the CQC, Alzheimer’s Society, Care England, and Care Management Matters, it enables the event to bring the latest information and knowledge to all of its visitors, helping to inspire business growth.
The Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo is working towards creating a sustainable social care model. In order to do this it is co-located with the Home Care Expo, a show solely focussed on domiciliary care, and the European Neuro Convention, Europe’s leading event for brain and spine experts. The co-location will highlight the importance of care pathways within a clinical environment and in the community, where more and more rehabilitation and on-going care must be delivered.
