Operators of care homes face a constant struggle. They are forced to juggle the health, safety and well-being of their residents against increasing financial pressure. If opportunities arise to improve residents’ health and the standard of living whilst also saving money, they shouldn’t be ignored.
One of the most prominent – and unpredictable – issues is heating. Because care homes are effectively 24/7 operations, energy usage is one of their greatest expenditures. However there are heating options available that can help exceed residents’ expectations of their living environment whilst freeing up greater financial resources for the operators.
Money saved is money that can be reallocated towards improving the overall quality of care.
