What if everything we know about ageing is wrong? Our culture tells us that ageing with change is against our will, and for the worse. What if we decide to change ageing and begin to approach life’s most dangerous game with the skill and enthusiasm it requires? Dr Bill Thomas
Dr Bill Thomas, Global Chair of Evermore and one of the most innovative thinkers in healthcare today, will be in Lancaster, Manchester and Leeds this June to challenge ageing stereotypes and talk about how organisations can meet the needs of a savvy older consumer. He will share his latest thoughts on revolutionising lifestyles in older age and launch a radical approach to people development in the sector with the GREEN HOUSE PEOPLE TM programme.
First stop for Dr Thomas will be Lancaster University, where he will be hosted by Professor Christine Milligan, Director of the Centre for Ageing Research.
In Manchester Dr Thomas will be joined by Gary Waites, Senior Employment Law Consultant Specialist in Care Sector at Avensure, plus representatives from Kimberly Clarke, Lighthouse Group, and the National Care Association.
While in Leeds, Dr Phil Hammond, doctor, journalist, broadcaster, campaigner and comedian will bring his own insights to the event.
The events will be of interest to senior figures from NHS, private health and social care organisations, registered providers and those who advise the sector.
