An interdisciplinary conference on the pivotal role of the home in health and social care. Two main aims: to present and consolidate current thought and evidence on the role of the home in promoting and sustaining health -both personal health and the health of society at large; and to promote future evidence-based discourse and policy-making.
As an international and interdisciplinary event, the 2011 conference Excellence in the Home, Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework, was held to deepen our understanding of how developing and improving professional approaches to housework can enhance the wellbeing of present and future generations.
What makes the space we live in a home? This question is worth answering if, as we believe, the wellbeing of each person begins in the home. Study and research shows that a successful home influences the welfare of our society.
Before setting up the foundation, Excellence in the Home, as we were previously known, organised its first International Conference. It saw the coming together of experts in the fields of sociology, nutrition, economics and marketing, and practitioners in the hospitality and care industries. Debates were held on the topics of diet and personal well-being and unhealthy lifestyle trends challenged.
