Purchasing for Care Homes

Delivering high quality care

Ensuring the wellbeing of residents is as important to us as it is to you.

Building price stability helps care providers plan ahead with confidence.

Managing the costs of high quality care

The health and wellbeing of residents is the primary goal of every care home. With Lynx supporting your buying, you and your staff will have more time and money to provide residents with even better care.

Balancing quality and value

With our expertise and large network of suppliers, we can help managers and chefs get the best quality products at the best price for your care home – from essentials to specialist diet foods as well as residential home equipment, hygiene products, utilities, lighting and textiles. For multiples, we can give you visibility on costs group-wide for better management and buying strategies.

Effective cost management

We provide quarterly statistics on what you purchase so you can analyse what’s in your shopping basket. And because we track prices right across the market, we can build price stability into what you buy by negotiating costs for a fixed time, so you can plan with confidence.
