Why Your Care Home Business Needs the Quality Care Calculator
You Must Set the Right Fees Because Your Referrers Won’t
Your referrers – your LAs and CCGs – will never set the right fees because their fee levels are based on their budget restraints and not on what you need to be able to deliver quality care and remain financially sustainable.
Only you can set the fees you need, and the Quality Care Calculator is the only tool that will ensure you do that.
Continue to allow your referrers to set fee levels, as you have for years, and your care home will eventually join others who have gone insolvent.
If you are to take back control and set the fees your business needs, then you need to know how to accurately calculate those fees.
The only way you can win any discussion on fees and receive the fees you need is to do the maths and refuse any clients for less.
By accurately calculating the fees you need, you will:
Commanding the right fee is not a choice it is a necessity – the survival of your care home depends on it.
