Adult specialist care has ‘stood up well’ to the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, a report has found today.

Adult Specialist Care UK Market Report, published by LaingBuisson, found COVID-19 did not pose the same existential threat to the sector as that faced by older people’s care.

It found the loss of business because of deaths and fewer new admissions has been limited.It also found that the pandemic may accelerate the digitisation of social care such as digital record keeping.

Report author, William Laing, said: ‘Adult specialist care has demonstrated that it is among the most robust social care sectors. While this is in no small measure attributable to public willingness to see the lifetime costs of some of the most vulnerable in our society covered, it has ridden out the storm of COVID-19 well.

’Staffing levels returned to normal quickly and this sector did not experience the same negative impact as a result of a higher than usual number of deaths or reduction in admissions.’
