Another Tough Year for Care Homes

September 3, 2012

LEICESTER, England, September 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

As care homes struggle to stay compliant with regulations, iBC quality

solutions company step in to help.

With the care of elderly and vulnerable people being of utmost importance, we are
often surprised when we see the state of some of the care offered in homes across the UK.
Shocking cases in the media have led the public to question; are privately run care homes
solely profit driven?

New cases of mistreatment in care homes are being revealed daily, so, how can we stop
this? iBC Quality Solutions Director, Nizam Bata, says; “We are finding in the industry
that care homes undergoing a safeguarding investigation are not compliant with the Care
Quality Commission set out to stop the mistreatment of residents.” iBC has found that many
companies struggle as they do not have the in-house expertise to turn around their failing
care homes. Nizam continues; “In cases where care homes employ consulting firms, they are
left with a large bill and no form of support for the implementation of the strategy that
the outsourced company put together.”

iBC noted this issue, and had a goal to change the state of care homes. iBC has two
main goals; to improve the quality of care offered across the UK, and to ensure that care
home owners are continually complying with all regulations whilst ensuring their
businesses remain profitable.

Since starting the business at the beginning of 2012, iBC has helped a number of care
homes back on their feet. In order to change the homes for the better, iBC is made up of a
number of qualified care home managers and highly-experienced local authority management
along with nurses, care staff and managers. This ensures that the company is at the heart
of the care home industry at all times.

Senior Consultant Michele Lovock White adds; “We have the chance the change the UK
care home system for the better, and we are very committed to doing so. We want to let
everyone know what we are trying to do, and hope that we can change the public’s
perception of care homes.”
