Care home thought leadership

In January 2017, Rix & Kay published its second thought leadership report into the care home sector. The challenges for care homes and their residents, provides strategic industry insight into the state of the care home sector.

Read a summary of the key findings and request a free copy of the report

The challenges for care homes and their residents is the result of information gathered following a detailed survey and face-to-face interviews with care home owners from across Sussex, Surrey and Kent, who provided their opinions on a series of key issues including business climate and funding, regulation, public relations, and user experience.

We hope that the report will serve as a strategic business planning tool for care providers and we would welcome any feedback you might have on the issues covered in the report. You can contact a member of our team by emailing

Rix & Kay’s specialist Care sector team is a strategic and important part of its business and it continues to invest in the Sector so that it can truly understand and advise on key issues. Our experience in the sector has allowed us to develop a wealth of expertise and our work around key strategic issues such as funding, the role of the CQC and regulation, public relations, user experience, and managing employees, means we are best placed to provide advice to both care home owners and residents.

In 2014, Rix & Kay published The care sector, what does the future hold?

The report provided valuable insight into the state of the care sector, both from a business and resident’s perspective. Although a snapshot of the sector in the South East, it highlighted some key findings and challenges faced by the sector on a national basis and proved to be a useful strategic business planning tool for care providers.

Following the work that went into the report, Rix & Kay were awarded the ‘Excellence in Business Development’ award at the Law Society Excellence Awards 2015 and ‘Team of The Year’ at the LawNet Awards 2015.
