Person Centred Software (PCS) and the National Care Forum (NCF) welcomed the Australian SAGE Delegation this week, to share best practices in UK social care and residential aged care in Australia.
The evening was a night of international exchange, discussing and sharing best practice strategies in Adult Social Care in the UK and residential aged care in Australia that could be shared, tailored, or adopted as appropriate.
The Australian SAGE delegation consisted of Chief Executives of small to large organisations in the Australian aged care sector. The drinks reception was part of their tour in the UK, where they visited multiple care providers across the country to gain knowledge of:
- How care homes are managed and run in the UK.
- Innovative products implemented in the care homes.
- Any challenges that they have faced.
Commenting on the evening, Andrew Coles, Chief Executive of PCS, said, ‘It’s fantastic that executives and leaders from the Australian aged care industry can gain valuable insight into innovative care software, receive expert advice from highly respected industry professionals, and get an in-depth view of how the social care sector works in the UK. The evening was great for building relationships, learning from each other and collaborating to improve social care.’
The PCS mission is to lead in improving systems used in social care globally through the use of innovative technology. Person Centred Software has centred its focus on a global joined-up approach to its digital solutions. Supporting over 140,000 residents across the world in the UK, IE and Australia, PCS’s ultimate goal is to improve the lives of everyone involved in social care.
The evening consisted of a tour of the historic Lords Cricket Ground, the most famous cricket ground in the world, drinks, canapes and a couple of speeches from Andrew Coles, Chief Executive of Person Centred Software, Nathan Jones, Senior Policy, Research and Projects Officer at National Care Forum, Justin Dover, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Alino Living (located in the heart of the Central Coast of NSW) and Judy Martin, Director of SAGE program.
Judy Martin, Director of the SAGE program, said, ‘I’m delighted with the networking opportunity the PCS and NCF event provided. You can never underestimate the power of collegial and international exchange, where, no matter where we are in the world, our industry’s challenges are similar. Network and exchange opportunities like this provide thought leadership to all the challenges we face.’
Liz Jones, Director of Policy of The National Care Forum, added, ‘NCF is delighted to support the return of the SAGE tour, bringing together providers from Australia and the UK. This is an important and unique opportunity to share experiences and lessons learned, particularly from the past few years, and foster relationships across the globe.’
