We had the pleasure of having Dr Sophie Taysom chair our webinar, Responding to COVID-19: care homes and community care, on 16 September 2020. This webinar examined a range of existing solutions to address challenges associated with the built environment and healthcare in the context of care homes and community care.
Our speakers focused on the importance of creating new living choices for older people, care homes and digital transformation in Greater Manchester, providing support in retirement villages, and building healthier care homes. A core theme running through the presentations was that solutions need to be designed with older people, taking into account differing needs and wants, rather than viewing older people as a homogenous group.
