February 28, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Alex Fox, CEO of Shared Lives Plus, will share key highlights from his new book in conversation with Halima Khan, Executive Director of Nesta’s Health Lab. In ‘A New Health and Care System: Escaping the Invisible Asylum,’ he proposes a new model of care for people needing long term support. The book highlights the ways in which the ‘invisible asylum’ of the current public service model squanders the potential of people with long-term support needs and the creativity and caring capacity of families and front-line workers.
