A case study
Agincare started working with a care home in administration that was failing in several areas even though there was an improvement plan in place, most of which had already been achieved. Agincare produced a summary business review of the current issues raised by statutory services, with recommendations for the priority focus and where value could be achieved. Areas where immediate savings could be made were identified in terms of staffing rotas, roles and responsibilities. Agincare’s expertise and networks enabled key external parties to feel reassured that the home was receiving adequate professional support and guidance, which otherwise would have impacted further on the financial position of the home. In an agreed time period the home had: • Made further improvements necessary for statutory services • Achieved efficient daily management • Protected the immediate interest of all parties and ensured legal compliance • Increased referral rate and bed occupancy • Reduced overheads Overall, the structured action plan clearly improved the stability and value of the home enabling the Administrators to increase the sale opportunities at the best possible price.
