Caring for the carers

Here at Invicta we have enormous respect for the people who own or work in care homes throughout the UK. Ensuring that senior members of society enjoy a full, rich and dignified life is so important, especially today as we see an ever increasing older population. The Care Sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK, so why are so many insurance companies pulling out of this market? We don’t think that’s fair so have decided to step in and help.

It has been well publicised recently that a lot of insurance companies have been pulling out of the care home market, which is difficult to understand as statistics show the Care industry to be one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the UK:

  • 1.5 million people employed in the care Sector in 2013 – expected to grow to 2.5 million by 2025
  • 11 million people aged over 65 in the UK – the first time in history
  • 23.2 million people aged over 50 in the UK – over a third of the population
  • Dementia is one of the main causes of disability in later life
  • 1 in 3 people in the UK will die from dementia
  • £23.3billion approximate cost of dementia to the UK per year
  • 25% of all hospital beds are occupied with older patients with dementia

At Invicta we think Care Home owners need and deserve to have the best possible insurance cover in place; cover that can be provided by a knowledgeable, professional and friendly team.

So for the past few months we have worked closely with top insurance underwriters to make this happen. We attended the National Care Awards in London which afforded us the opportunity to network with senior figures in the care industry and have also conducted our own care home market research to learn more of what care home owners expect and want from an insurance policy.
