Join me for this conversation if you are open to be challenged about how you think about older people & growing older. Mervyn offers us his thoughts about a society in which stereotyped ageist assumptions abound.

A topic so close to my heart, Mervyn’s comments were more than enough to fuel me to continue to question & challenge what I hear, see & think. Are you ready to do the same? Whatever your position is on health, social care & public sector service provision, my promise is the adrenaline will flow. This episode is well worth a listen.

The conversation relates primarily to social care provision, but the principles apply to anyone who invites consultation in their role as practitioner or reviewer. What is happening here touches Safeguarding Adults Review work most specifically.
