Having exposed the fact that local care provision across the country has been in a very sorry state for a number of years, CSI Market Intelligence has published two series of regional e:reports that show all the relevant market information for each local authority for both the care home for elderly people and domiciliary care markets.
The information for each local authority includes
- Population forecasts by age group - 2021, 2026 and 2031
- The local dementia population - in care and in the community -2020, 2025 and 2031
- Local supply levels broken down by care sector
- Local Authority contributions paid (weekly rates for care homes, hourly rates for domiciliary care)
- Company sector breakdown - private, not for profit and public
- Care Quality as provided by CQC ratings
- Openings and closures
- Household tenure for those 65 plus
In compiling these handbooks we prove that the development of new care homes and domiciliary care locations in previous years has not always been planned to fit with local demand, and that in other areas local authorities are seeing already low levels of supply being further reduced by closures.
Local authorities (that is adult social services and planning departments) need to be in control of what goes on in their areas to ensure that they provide enough local care provision for those who need it, and, especially with care homes, stop accepting new developments that put pressure on the existing provider’s ability to survive, and also to ensure the providers can find enough people to employ.
But can they gain this control in a market that is 90% provided by the private sector, and where it is generally accepted that they are not paying enough to those companies to provide the care?
The reports are real page turners. Every local authority, listed alphabetically in their own region, have their own stories – in fact the reports are more like a compilation of short stories.
The best way to find out what is occurring in your area, and what is forecast to happen over the next 5 and 10 years is to buy the relevant report. A petty cash purchase for detailed management information.Definitive Regional Handbooks Only £9
