The event, taking place at the Dunsilly Hotel, 20 Dunsilly Road, Antrim, on Thursday, November 12th, will explore issues around palliative and end of life care for older people.

The team will facilitate Reading Rooms at break times and over lunch so delegates can be offered the opportunity to feel the experience of a Reading Room.

These Reading Rooms will focus on stories that have been used with older people in a wide variety of settings e.g. in care homes, day care, with older people with dementia, with disabilities and other long term conditions such as surviving a Stroke, to demonstrate to delegates how the Reading Rooms can impact on older people and enrich their lives. 

There will also be stories available that Reading Rooms have used with Care Home Managers in particular.

“After experiencing a Reading Room at the My Home Life conference myself it has high impact and I think it is great to offer these delegates an opportunity to understand Reading Rooms and how it can connect with older people but also that will link in and enhance their experience of the conference as well."
(My Home Life Conference Delegate)
