MARKET SUMMARY

1.1 Definition and scope of the study

As the population ages, the demand for health care will increase. The National Statistics Office forecasts a 36 per cent increase in the number of people aged 85 and over between 2015 and 2025, from 1.5 million to 2 million. This is expected to result in a substantial increase in the demand for home health care services. The nursing home sector, which includes the nursing home sector, represents about £15.9 billion per year in the United Kingdom in 2018, with about 410,000 residents

As a reminder, home care is supportive care provided in the home by licensed health professionals who provide medical care, allowing the patient to be treated at home.

Thus, activities provided by professional caregivers to ensure that activities of daily living are performed will be excluded from our study. Indeed, services such as shopping, ironing or cleaning assistance do not strictly speaking correspond to medical services but to services provided to medically unfit persons.

A large part of the market concerns the provision of services to the elderly, but home health care is also provided to people with long-term illnesses and disabilities, as well as to those who have recently left hospital.

Home care can be provided and funded by a variety of individuals or organizations. Local authorities (LAs) play a major role in the home healthcare market by purchasing home care services for some of its residents. This includes the direct purchase of service providers, voluntary services and private service providers. Under the Care Act 2014, local authorities have a statutory obligation to "shape" this market, to ensure that there are enough services of a sufficiently high quality to meet needs.

Private clients who, for example, are not eligible for LA home care can also purchase home care directly from private service providers.

For the NHS, it is essential to allow people to "age in place" and provide care as close as possible to their homes. However, due to budget cuts and pressure on budgets, local authorities are finding it difficult to fund these services for an ageing population, and the lack of care only aggravates the difficulties of the NHS.

In addition, between 2017 and 2018, three of the largest national home care providers (Saga, Care UK and Housing

Thus, the health care market appears uncertain and fragile; the greatest challenges remain for public services to be able to provide quality home care while seeking greater efficiency. Innovations in the sector, such as telemedicine, telehealth and remote telecare, are responses to this challenge
