Summarises the discussions from two round table events attended by leaders in adult social services to examine the barriers to reimagining home care and how the system could be developed to improve outcomes for service users. The topics discussed included: ensuring enough capacity and the right capacity in the care market; whether there is a risk averse culture when it comes to helping people to help themselves; achieving wider person-centred care rather than care focussed on solutions to particular conditions or needs; and how to better connect communities, neighbourhoods and people, and the role of technology. The events were organised by ADASS and Younifi.
