The ‘Collective Care Futures’ programme supports reflection and learning from COVID-19 across care homes and care at home contexts.
Scottish Care is developing a new programme of work that will provide an opportunity to reflect, share care realities, and most importantly, begin to explore what this means for the independent care sector in the future. They would like to involve a wide range of perspectives from people who may access care at home support or people who have loved ones in care home settings.
COVID-19 has brought about significant change and impact to interactions with, and experiences of, health and social care. The situation has required a dynamic and adaptive way of working to respond to new and developing information on how to manage the impacts of the virus.
This programme of work aims to build on the learning from COVID-19 to collectively explore this new care reality and work towards shaping a ‘preferable’ care future. Scottish Care will outline the emerging themes from the shared care realities and present a vision and pathway towards a collective care future.
The programme is running for six weeks and a new survey will be launched each week to explore the following themes: Technology, Care Practice, Partnership, Workforce, Wellbeing and Profile. Visit Scottish Care’s website to take the first survey which is on the theme of technology (this link will take you away from our website).
Alternatively, online sessions will take place over a six week period, with each being tailored to the context and participant experience of the pandemic in care homes or care at home.
