How Strong is Your Care Home?
The strength of your care home is directly proportional to the quality of the foundation it is built on.
Watch this important short video to find out why.
If any of these 3 vital elements, that I talk about in the video, are weak then, just like a weak link in a chain, your foundation will not be strong enough to ensure the success of your care home.
How Strong is Your Care Home?
Seriously, based on these 3 foundational elements, how strong is your care home?
Of course, you know at a higher level. You know if…
- You are not receiving high enough fees;
- Your people aren’t all working well together or receiving all the training they need;
- How compliant you are from your last CQC inspection, if you’ve made your home GDPR compliant and from how much the KLOES are embedded in how you run your home.
But where exactly are the weaknesses? If you don’t know how can you do something about them?
Well, the truth is, you can’t do anything about them. You’re blind to the inherent weaknesses in your business and that makes you vulnerable because you can’t be fully prepared for unexpected situations that can harm it.
It’s like going to your GP complaining that you don’t feel well. Your GP does some basic tests and confirms that you are right, you are in fact not well. Great – see you then.
What you need is for your GP to diagnose exactly what the problem is so that something can be done about it.
And that’s exactly what you need to do with your care home. You need to thoroughly diagnose where the weaknesses are so that you can do something about it.
Ok – so where do you start? How do you build an accurate diagnosis that clearly highlights where your problem areas are? You can spend weeks figuring this out for yourself, pay a lot of money to a consultant to carry out an assessment and receive a long-winded report with recommendations or [fanfare] you can download the Care Home Health Check Tool For Care Homes and carry out this assessment yourself.
