The long-term senior living care sector appears resilient with strong profit margins with demographic indicators ensuring that the future looks positive, according to a recent report be Colliers CRE.

Despite recessionary pressures taking their toll on the wider UK property market, there are still sectors which remain relatively resilient in the face of the economic downturn. The residential care home market is one of them, protected by an ageing population which is growing at an increasing rate and the lack of facilities to house and care for these individuals.

On 24th March 2009 at the Sofitel St James in central London key industry players from across the care and property industries will come together to discuss and debate opportunities in this emerging market.

Investors and developers can’t help but see the potential and with funding tight for care providers this forum will bring the two sectors together to explore strategies to encourage investment and ensure long-term quality care provision.

Speakers include BUPA, Shelbourne Senior Living, Colliers CRE, ING Real Estate, Care Quality Commission, Macquarie Capital, Hunter Healthcare, Savills, Barclays Commercial Bank, King Sturge and Signature Senior Lifestyle to name a few.

The one day conference will be followed by a workshop on 25th March exploring demand for investment in quality dementia care.

The workshop will be run by Dr Graham stokes, Head of Mental Health at BUPA and David Parry, Director of Quantum Care.
