Improving Efficiency


Speaking from his own experiences, Brian Boxall-Hunt, Chief Executive of maritime charity The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society, highlights the importance of proper planning for ensuring resident wellbeing and a well-run care home.

This significantly reduces admin time and means we can spend more time on resident care.
