6th International Carers Conference - Care and caring: future proofing the new demographics
How we manage care and caring in the face of demographic change increasingly dominates social policy, research and practice.
The 6th International Carers Conference – to be held from 3rd – 6th September 2015 in Gothenburg, Sweden and co-hosted by the Swedish Family Care Competence Centre, Carers Sweden and Carers UK – will challenge the international community to take a fresh look at an enduring issue.
The conference will focus on four key themes:
- Health, social care and well-being: how do modern societies and economies manage care in the face of demographic change and more mobile populations?
- Combining work and care: how can we support people to manage their working and caring lives, contributing to business, economic and social sustainability?
- Paying for care: how can we share the costs of care between the individual, family, community and the state? How can we ensure there is a vibrant market for care?
- Technology-enabled care and support: how can new technologies support the delivery of care, transform the lives of individuals and families and drive economic growth?
Daniel Molinuevo, Research Officer, Living Conditions and Quality of Life unit, will make a presentation on Workforce recruitment and retention initiatives in Europe.
