Older People

Valuing Care understands that services that are cost-effective, provide value for money and achieve good outcomes for older people are essential. Our research indicates that high levels of staff turnover and increased fragmentation in the care home market is limiting supply and restricting choice.

Older people’s services cost base is under constant scrutiny; we help councils commission at affordable fee rates and to also use their own purchasing power to hold down rates for residential care services.

Ensuring that you provide the right advice and negotiation support to self-funders in your area is important and as such we extend our services to self-funders; in this area we have discovered there is a large disparity between the rates paid by local councils and those paid by private individuals, who are likely to pay on average, 25% more for the cost of their care.
