On the 16th May, in partnership with Care Home Collaborative, we ran an event to ask families ‘What Matters to You’ in terms of being a carer and contemplating a care home for their loved one.

Tommy Whitelaw, National Lead from Person Centred Voices shared his caring journey and how we can all make a difference by having meaningful conversations.

The event was further enhanced by Amanda and Jen, Newton House Care Home, sharing their knowledge and expertise.

We also had Mark Mulhern, Carers Lead, Health and Social Care Partnership who shared his experiences and responded to questions.

Crucially, we heard directly from carers- Susanne, Lindsey, Irene, Liz and Gladys.
