We understand that Care Homes are an integral part of the delivery of social care to an increasingly ageing population that is often living with chronic and long-term conditions and at the same time providing vital complementary services to healthcare in the UK. However, with the introduction of the living wage, skills and staff shortages, downward pressure on funding of Care Home places, and a tighter more vigilant regulatory regime there are significant challenges that the Care Homes market faces. Whether you are a Care Homes operator, owner or investor Capsticks’ specialist legal team can help you respond effectively to these challenges.
