The PASSsystem is… 

…the industry standard in digital care management used by over 600 care services across the UK. 

The PASSsystem’s real-time updates to care notes and MAR sheets keep thousands of care staff equipped with the latest data about their customers, dramatically reducing risk and costly administration and improving the quality of care delivery.

Care has evolved from family care, through residential care to the growth of homecare and, of course, the combination of all. Now care is evolving once more, driven by heightened consumer expectation, increased demand due to an aging population, and the advancement of mobile technology solutions such as The PASSsystem.

The PASSsystem was created by everyLIFE Technologies and is the industry standard in digital care management because of our unique understanding of not only the current issues facing the care industry, but our ability to look ahead and cater for the needs of care in a connected world.

GRP Finance

Richard Nunn

GRP Finance

Until October 2006 GRP Finance was known as G R Patrick & Company (Finance) Ltd and was part of the G R Patrick Group, a name synonymous with the care sector for many years and well known to National Care Association members. Following the split up of the Group at that time, GRP Finance has continued to flourish as an independent finance broker, providing specialist mortgages and business development loans to the care home market.

With over 20 years’ experience, GRP Finance is a Preferred Business partner of the National Care Association and is able to use its considerable expertise to arrange competitive funding packages tailored to suit individual care home owners. As a broker it has access to all the major banks and other principal lenders and is able to make informed comparisons while sourcing the most appropriate financing. Consequently GRP Finance can save home owners both time and money - as well as considerable frustration - at a time when funding is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.

As director Richard Nunn observed, “Over the last 18 months GRP Finance has established itself under its changed identity and build on its many years of experience. It continues to grow and we look forward to the opportunities ahead, serving our many clients in the care sector and developing our close relationship with the National Care Association.”
