Thinking Ahead

Thinking Ahead is a stimulating series of seminars hosted by RAFFA Academy and Nehemiah UCHA . Both organisations with members of Church of God of Prophecy and local communities are exploring the current and future expectations of older people and carers. There are rising expectations amongst the groups for a culturally sensitive approach to understanding the needs of older people regarding their security, moving towards supported living in their own homes with long term care. The fears expressed around “infirmity” focused heavily on the lack of Nursing Home provision, poor quality care and the inability to access long-term personal, social and medical care services
