Nightingale Hammerson hosted the 3rd Care Home Research Forum at Hammerson House, Wohl Campus, London

For the third consecutive year, Nightingale Hammerson was delighted to host the hugely popular and informative Care Home Research Forum at their North London Home, Hammerson House. The Forum assembled groups of social care researchers, social care providers, care professionals, CQC representatives, government representatives, care home residents and their relatives.

The Care Home Research Forum has evolved as a unique international event, where care professionals and researchers present findings from their studies, followed by an in-depth Q&A session. The event is held in person and via a live feed. We were excited to host experts from all corners of the world, including the USA, Australia, the Philippines, India, China, Israel, South America and several countries in Europe.

 “Good care can only be provided with a good knowledge base and good empathetic practice.” Jackie Morris, retired geriatrician and member of the Scientific Committee.

The areas of discussion included Dementia, Funding for Care Provision, Social Connection, Intergenerational Engagement and many more interesting topics. We examined research on the emotionally charged decision to move into a care home, carer burnout and the prevention of social isolation.

Research plays a crucial role in the way we shape the future of social care. Nightingale Hammerson’s commitment is once again demonstrated by the organisation of this international event. Knowledge is power. This enlightening conference revealed how we can disseminate this knowledge through training and education.
