Attention Care Home Owners and Managers

We can help you to make sure your care home achieves and maintains financial viability, meets CQC outcomes to a “good” standard and, most importantly, delivers the highest quality of care to your clients.

A successful care home first needs to be financially viable, needs to have the best people and needs to work efficiently and effectively.

Be Financially Viable

To deliver the best of care your care home needs to be financially viable.

Too many care homes struggle to stay open, never mind deliver the care their clients need simply because they can’t afford to. The are not financially viable.

If your home isn’t financially viable then, from care delivery to compliance, everything you do will be a struggle.

And in too many cases, this struggle ends with closure.

A financially viable care home is a strong, resilient care home and, like any business, being financially strong must be your number 1 priority. Only then can you afford to run a compliant, sustainable care home that delivers the individual quality care that your clients’ need.

It is therefore imperative that you receive the right fees for your beds.

If you have any doubt that receiving the right fees must be your number 1 priority then read, The Secret to Running a Successful Care Home.

If you agree that you need to receive the right fees but don’t know how to calculate, set and have your local authority pay them, then check out our half-day training session, How to Set the Right Fees, where we will show you how.

To run a care home that delivers the best care possible, in addition to being financially viable, you need a home that runs efficiently and effectively without your daily intervention.

Your people must know what they need to do and how to do it. Mistakes can lead to safeguarding incidents, inspections, upset clients and relatives, blocked beds and more. Mistakes must be few and far between.

Essentially your home must run like an efficiently working machine.

The systems and processes that we can help you develop are working effectively in other care homes. These systems and processes reduce cost, time and effort. They increase understanding and help reduce mistakes.

We have also developed Excel-based software tools that will help your staff record the information that you need to see to know that your home is running well and that CQC, NHS and local authorities demand.

Systems and processes and tools include:

  • Clear process flows for all departments showing how to implement key tasks policies and procedures;
  • Effective quality audit and data recording tools covering areas like incidents, DoLS, tissue viability and more that increases accuracy and reduces mistakes and your paperwork time and effort;
  • Efficient calculation of staff wages based on submitted rotas;
  • An effective training management tool that shows you who needs what training when so that you meet industry requirements.

Contact us if you want your home to run more efficiently and effectively and with fewer issues and mistakes.

We can help and we are here to ensure your clients don’t have to move due to home closure or financial instability, or failure to meet CQC requirements or because of safeguarding issues.

You can be financially healthy and still pay the national living wage, have the best trained and supported staff, deliver the best care and meet higher than minimum standards that CQC defines.

We are on a mission and have created QoC in response to the ever increasing challenges that care home owners and managers face.

Our society needs care homes to succeed not struggle and fail.

With 21 years between us in the care sector, we know how to help you succeed.

With an increasing aging population mental health issues such as dementia are prevalent and, with a predicted 800,000 more beds being required in the next 10 years, concerns about bed availability are ever growing.

If you want to succeed, want to develop and improve, want to deliver the right care and expand to provide more care to those who need it then we are here to help.

Our passion is care, first and foremost, but doing that doesn’t mean you have to run a business that struggles to make a profit.

Profit is not a dirty word as suggested by those who purchase your services. It is a necessity. And even more so for any business that is working within the confines of today’s economic pressures from local government, the rising demands of legislation and the ever increasing costs of running a good care home.

With us, you can move your business forward and it be the success you always wanted it to be.

So, if we have hit a chord with anything we have said and you want to make a difference to peoples’ lives and to your own current business in care, then contact us to see how we can help you.
