The U.K. care home industry has had to work through increasing staff and care costs without an equally increasing reimbursement coverage, putting strain on the bottom line.

The significant impact of COVID on the residents of care homes, and the subsequent fear of the public to move into a care home will require a rethink of how the industry is going to survive.
