This week is National Care Homes Week in the UK. A week designed to raise awareness of care issues, with a large focus on improving care knowledge for those people who are considering putting their family, friends or themselves into care.
To support this initiative Caring Business held a ‘Going into Care’ Information Day in Manchester on June 4th. The day offered the opportunity to learn more about care options, with speakers at the event giving a real insight into the realities of care. This included, what care home’s can provide, the costs involved, life in a home and the negative myths that still prevail within the care industry.
This is one of many events that Caring Business are putting on this year to improve caring knowledge. These events all offer information that is helpful for people working within the care industry along with people who have family living within it.
