Every year thousands of people think of opening a private care home, but most fail because of lack of advice. This book, written by one of the UK's leading authorities on private care homes, takes the would-be proprietor through all the steps involved in setting up and running a private care home. Every aspect of the subject is covered in a down-to-earth, practical manner and sections include finance, legislation, staffing administration and care planning. The latest government reports about care homes are discussed, including the latest proposals for community care. Dr Barron makes predictions about the way the industry will change over the next few years and how this will affect the would-be proprietor. The private care homes business is one of Britain's fastest growing industries. There are now 15,000 private residential and nursing homes in the UK and the industry is worth eight billion pounds. At least 10,000 new private care home places will have to be created by the turn of the century just to meet the expected demand. For would-be proprietors, social workers, doctors and anyone interested in long-term care for the elderly.
