CQC’s David Behan to discuss care quality at The Alzheimer’s Show, London on Friday 19 April

David Behan, chief executive of the Care Quality Commission, will be discussing national standards covering all aspects of care, including treating people with dignity and respect; making sure food and drink meets people’s needs; ensuring that the environment is clean and safe and the management and staffing of services.

He will also speak more specifically about the care needs of people living with dementia; the steps that are being taken to ensure that all dementia care in the UK is of a high standard and the training and regulation that will be in place to ensure that the best care can be delivered and received.

Nigel Ward, founder of The Alzheimer’s Show, said: “Care quality has been a major press topic and we thought it was important that we could provide visitors to The Alzheimer’s Show with the people who can not only answer our care concerns, but also present to them the solutions and options for good care that are already available."
