Entitled Care and Caring: Future-Proofing the New Demographics, this important event involves experts from 30 countries who will debate the critical issues of how we manage and address the needs of carers and how we will provide care in the face of inevitable demographic change.

Our Head of Development Anna Jackson will be among selected speakers and will present her paper ‘Independence, Reassurance, Innovation’ at the Technology-Enabled Care and Support seminar on Saturday, September 4.

She will talk about the benefits our innovative smartphone app – App4Care – and the impact the linked technological application can have on helping carers to keep in contact with their loved one, allowing carers to go to work, college or school, or get on with everyday activities.

App4Care comprises two interlinked apps, one for the carer and the other for the person they look after. It consists of a suite of seven easy-use functions, all tailored to provide peace of mind and to support independence. For more information about the app please visit

Anna will be blogging daily on here about her visit and you can also follow the event on twitter using #carers2015

Best of luck, Anna!

Also attending the Conference is Jenny Read a Phd student who is on a three year placement with the Carers’ Resource,  conducting research into carers in the workplace for her degree. Good luck to Jenny as well!
