Self-payers are crucial to COVID occupancy recovery

Green shoots of improved occupancy are emerging in the sector, with some providers putting strategies in place to return to pre-COVID levels.

LaingBuisson forecasts that it will take until 2023 for occupancy rates to recover from COVID. In total, it estimates that the care home population dropped by more than 30,000 people between March and September 2020 – which is before many homes were hit by the second COVID-19 wave, decreasing occupancy rates further.

In this exclusive feature for CHM Online, freelance writer Eleanore Robinson explores care home providers’ strategies for recovery.
