Self-neglect can be a complex and challenging issue for practitioners because of the need to find the balance between respecting a person’s autonomy and fulfilling a duty to protect the adult’s health and well-being.

This conference which features extended interactive sessions focuses on the difficult issue of self neglect and adult safeguarding and includes an extended focus on hoarding. Through national updates, practical case studies and extended interactive group work the conference will cover self-neglect, meeting the statutory safeguarding guidance, safeguarding people who self-neglect: the evidence and what works, developing guidance for professionals when dealing with self-neglect and resistance to engage with services, an extended session on hoarding, and an extended session on dealing with the underlying causes of self-neglect working in partnership with people who are self-neglecting in a multi disciplinary way. The conference will also focus on the increasing issue of loneliness and social isolation in older people which evidence shows can contribute to self neglect.
