Whether a single home or a multi-site group, CoolCare enables easy care home management and improves the profitability of your business.

Our years of experience in running care homes means we know the complexities of key operational processes, such as invoicing, and understand the pressures of running a 24/7 business.

As a result, care home and head office staff alike find CoolCare very easy to use. Its exceptional user-friendliness comes from that deep understanding of what a day in the life of a care home is really like. We understand the way care homes work and how staff will want to use the software to your business’ advantage.

That also encourages more usage of the system and improved accuracy, which in turn makes business analysis and planning easier.

Any information that requires action by your staff will be brought to their attention through their personal dashboard. Your staff’s time can therefore be better focused, giving them time to spend with residents and preventing potential errors.

  • Housing with care.
  • Home care.

  • Residential care.


  • Real-Time Care™ – Care Management Software.

Company profile

At Fastroi™, we believe that every residential and domiciliary care service deserves to be rated ‘Outstanding’.

This belief has driven us for the last 15 years, when Fastroi™ began its journey in Finland. It is now established as the market leader in care management software, with over 1,000 installations and over 35,000 end users, including large private care companies and urban municipalities.

We developed Real-Time Care™ to give care organisations the tools to manage their processes and take the pressure off their staff, giving staff more time during their days to spend on caring. Real-Time Care™ offers care companies a cost-effective way to take control of their operations.

We offer a service that puts every aspect of care in one secure digital location. Having everything in one place means that care plans can be created and updated online with the input of all the necessary professionals. Staff rosters and hours can be planned and optimised to best suit the business. In-app communications ensures that staff and families are kept informed and up-to-date with events, regardless of where they are.

One of the problems with a pen and paper system is that high-quality care is not easy to maintain. It is also difficult to demonstrate that processes are being adhered to. By switching to Real-Time Care™ from Fastroi, care providers are making a commitment to improving and maintaining the quality of the care they provide. This has the added benefit of simplifying the inspection process and improving GDPR adherence.

Company profile

KareInn provides care group operators with a comprehensive suite of digital care management and insight tools, that frontline teams find simple to master and fast to adopt.

Serving some of the best care providers in the residential, dementia and nursing sector, our smart care platform gives managers insights to improve business performance, reduce preventable risks and improve quality of resident care.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has said in an inspection report, ‘A new electronic system [KareInn] had been implemented for care planning and recording. The system would immediately flag up if someone had not been repositioned at the required time. The electronic system would also highlight to the management team when people’s needs changed, such as if they lost weight. This meant the management team could take prompt action to review risk management strategies in place for the person.’

Benefits to the business include:

  • More informed, personalised resident care.
  • Improved alignment with the CQC Key Lines of Enquiry.
  • Ensure nothing gets missed.
  • Manager’s time focused on areas that require improvement.
  • Significant time savings for frontline staff – 30 days per home each year.

Carers can quickly create meaningful care records that typically saves at least an hour on paperwork, so they can spend more time with residents.

Person-centred care plans are informed by real-time evidence of care, and are accessible at any time on shift. Body maps, wound care, review cycles and assessments are all integrated to provide comprehensive, detailed, up-to-date care plans.

MCM gives managers the information they need quickly, accurately and in detail whenever it’s needed. All the usual reports and graphs are automatically created, and information can be shared securely with outside professionals to join up people’s health and social care journey.
