This seminar focuses on the future of older people's care in Wales, including changes to inspection and regulation arrangements, new models of care, challenges for finance and dementia care. The seminar takes place as the Welsh Government moves forward with plans for Local Health Boards and councils to pool budgets and delivery of health and social services. It also comes as policymakers and stakeholders plan the implementation of the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act from April 2018 which includes a new regulation and inspection framework with potentially substantial implications for quality, accountability and patient safety. It also follows the announcement of £35m a year additional funds for social care, an increase in the maximum charge for domiciliary care and plans to raise the capital threshold before which charges are incurred for residential care to rise to £50,000 by 2021.
