James Thomas, left, discusses care home services with a client

James Thomas, QFP, Commercial Manager at d&t business planning, discusses the need for careful planning when extending care home services.

The expansion of care home services requires the mitigation of risk through analysis and proper planning both to protect the business and those it cares for long term.

Extending an existing facility by nature often requires significant investment and therefore, commercial backing.  Securing appropriate funding will be a key part of the successful expansion of services. Here, a balance needs to be struck between the need for borrowing and the income likely to be generated from providing care services.

The Alzheimer's Show

The Alzheimer’s Show is returning for its sixth year in 2018 and will be at Olympia London on Friday June 8 and Saturday June 9.  The UK’s leading event for people living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory loss, The Alzheimer’s Show brings help and hope to families and carers and welcomes the public and professionals.

The Alzheimer’s Show is invaluable for anyone concerned about memory loss or dementia. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales and research from Saga Healthcare revealed that more people feared getting dementia than cancer. A survey of 9,000 people over 50 showed that 43% feared developing dementia, with women (often the main carers), 20% more likely to be worried about developing the condition than males.
