Restoring confidence: Will the self-funding care market thrive in the wake of Covid-19?
HealthInvestor UK’s editor Rob Munro was joined by Tom Hartley of care sector analysts Carterwood to discuss the future of the self-pay care home sector.
The lack of availability of testing and PPE combined with high death rates has had a devastating effect on public perception of the care sector and, despite heroic efforts by operators and investors, it will take considerable time before confidence is restored.
In the light of these sobering facts, what does the future hold for the self-pay market? Has the Covid-19 pandemic permanently damaged its reputation or will higher-end care homes become more popular as they offer greater protection from infection while the threat from Covid-19 lingers?
Tom answers these and other questions based on the results of Carterwood’s latest research into the self-pay market.
