2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Running a domiciliary care business is challenging at the best of times. So, the biggest challenge we envisage in delivering our outcomes will be time.

This problem can be overcome through having a very clear objective and planning our outcomes clearly and concisely. We will generate a timetable setting out days and times that we can carry out our outcomes. This will be in our office times along with some weekend and evenings.
