Why Your Care Home Business Needs the Quality Care Calculator
You Must Set the Right Fees Because Your Referrers Won’t
Your referrers – your LAs and CCGs – will never set the right fees because their fee levels are based on their budget restraints and not on what you need to be able to deliver quality care and remain financially sustainable.
Only you can set the fees you need, and the Quality Care Calculator is the only tool that will ensure you do that.
Take Back Control
Know what fee you need so that you can negotiate from a position of strength.
Receiving the right fee is not a choice it is a necessity – the survival of your care home depends on it.
You must calculate the right fees.
Eliminate the Guesswork and Set the Right Fee.
Enter all the care that you have assessed that you need to provide a person and the Quality Care Calculator will calculate exactly how much it will cost you to deliver that care (including nursing) each week.
With your fixed and staff costs included, the tool will then show you how much this person will cost you in total. This is your breakeven point. A penny below this point and you are making a loss.
Enter a target profit percentage, and the Quality Care Calculator will calculate the fee you need.
With the Quality Care Calculator you can:
Ensure You Cover Your Costs
Know exactly how much the base cost needs to be for each resident in order to cover the running costs – your fixed and staff costs – of your care home.
Show a Clear Breakdown of Your Quote
Show a clear, accurate breakdown of your care costs and be able to show what care would need to be reduced if your referrer wants you to reduce your fee.
Create Accurate Quotes in Minutes
The running costs you enter apply to all subsequent quotes you create. Enter any extra care needed and target profit and your fee is calculated for you.
Access All Your Quotes Anytime
All of your quotes are stored safely, securely and privately in the cloud and are accessible at any time.
Return a Healthy Business Profit
Set the profit your care home needs to remain financially strong and divide into your running costs so your referrers can’t pressure you to reduce it.
Calculate the True Cost of Care
Accurately calculate the cost for all the extra care you need to provide, against the average hourly rate of your carers and nurses, so you know you can afford to deliver that care and not hope you can.
No longer accept a fee hoping it will be enough to care for your client and your business. Present a fee that you know will be enough.
Create New Quotes Anywhere
The Quality Care Calculator is mobile friendly so you can review all quotes created and create new ones wherever you may be.
Hold Positive Client Reviews
Cost out increased or reduced care needs of clients so that, along with your evidence, you can clearly present the new cost of meeting their care needs.
Stay Financially Healthy
No longer guess how much it will cost to deliver the individual care a person needs and to keep your care home financially viable.
"Being able to prove the cost of the care we need to deliver the care needed and sticking to our guns has resulted in us receiving the right fees."
Kate Collins, Home Manager
"Having spent years putting together quotes based on what authorities were willing to pay, I now have a tool that gives me the confidence to challenge and ultimately get the fee I need."
Stephanie Smith, Home Manager.
"As a small care provider I can honestly say it’s been worth every penny. It has made calculating our costs so much easier. Additionally, it has highlighted to us the severity of the shortfall in funding from the LA and given us a sound platform to start negotiations from hopefully enabling us to futureproof the business, staff jobs and the service for residents both present and future."
Ben Jourdan, Director.
