For over 10 years Grace has helped leading care home groups, domiciliary care providers and smaller independents improve the customer experience and convert more business.

Mystery shopping

Grace's team of Mystery Shoppers replicates the customer journey with any combination of internet enquiries, telephone enquiries and personal visits.

The Mystery Shoppers assess first-hand the response from care providers, the quality of information received and the customer experience.

Benefits of mystery shopping

  • Helps improve the enquiry handling process
  • Highlights training needs
  • Checks compliance with customer care training
  • Helps understand the impact and success of pilot initiatives
  • Ultimately helps convert more business


Grace works closely with clients to develop scoresheets tailored to individual project requirements. Following the research, Grace provides detailed reports and anecdotal information to help improve processes and convert more enquiries.

Fee benchmarking

Fee Benchmarking compares the quality, price points and occupation rates of a care home or care home group with those of its nearest competitors.

Individual reports are provided on each of the homes and a summary report compares all of the homes at a glance.

This process helps care homes identify how best to gain competitive advantage locally and is also used to help assess whether an area is suitable for new care home development.

Benefits of fee benchmarking

  • Verifies your competitive positioning and how best to gain competitive advantage locally
  • Determines whether your price points are correct
