The responsibility to organize care services rests with the highly independent municipalities.
Since the s, the private provision of publicly funded services has grown substantially including for-profit providers and chains. The NHS and Community Care Act of devolved the funding responsibility of long-term care to local authorities and continued to transfer previously free NHS care into means-tested social care.

The first aim was to describe the contextual differences and the privatization and the growth trends of nursing home chains in 5 industrialized countries in the — period. The second aim was to describe the 5 largest for-profit chains in each country in terms of their 1 ownership, 2 corporate strategies, 3 costs, 4 quality, and 5 accountability in the most recent period of — We included historical data on ownership since where data were available to identify trends.
In each country, the 5 largest for-profit nursing home chains were selected based on number of beds, except in Norway only had a total of 4 chains. Study design and data collection For the first aim, descriptive data for and were collected from each country the most recent available data. For the second aim, we collected descriptive data on the 5 largest chains in each country using multiple secondary sources including public and private documents from government, corporate reports, market reports, media reports, and other sources for the most recent time period — The secondary sources of data collected were cited in the text and tables.
Data on quality were only available in the province of Ontario, Canada, and the United States. In Canada, government reports were used to identify deficiencies regulatory violations to indicate quality. In the United States, publicly available government administrative data were obtained to examine staffing and deficiencies for each nursing home chain. Data from private industry reports could not be confirmed and data from the large nursing home chains often varied by source.
It would have been desirable to have trend data over a longer time period by countries as well as data for the large chains. Unfortunately, historical trend data on nursing homes chains were not readily available except for publicly reported companies. Data on beds and homes were available for some chains in Canada and the United States for from private sources not government but were very limited for the United Kingdom. Some chain data on employees and revenue growth from private sources were available in Norway and Sweden, and several companies were new since It should also be noted that generally nursing homes do not report on homes that are owned and those that are managed so the term ownership in this article includes both homes that are owned and managed.
Data analysis The overall trend data were analyzed separately for each country and for the 5 largest chains in each country. For each chain, we analyzed the following: Finally, the findings in each country were compared with identify commonalities and differences related to the growth and impact of the 5 largest for-profit chains and policy issues were discussed.

Data on ownership and management were combined, and some companies in Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom have contracts with local government to manage nursing homes.
Total expenditures for nursing homes remained similar in Canada and the United States between andwhereas increasing in the United Kingdom, Norway, and Sweden Table 1.
Sienna Senior Living Inc. Chartwell Retirement Residences, the fourth largest chain, was owned by a trust and had public reporting. In contrast, Revera Inc. Schlegel Villages the fifth largest was privately owned by a family.

Two of the 5 chains provided management services to their companies and other homes. Retirement homes and assisted living facilities were a major target for growth primarily because they focused on the private pay market and were less regulated in terms of both starting up companies and operations. These chains have been able to take advantage of the limited bed supply and government funding and subsidies to rapidly expand their homes and beds.

Data on growth in beds and nursing homes were not available, but all 4 companies reported a substantial growth in revenues and employees over the past 5 to 10 years.
The chains also had complex ownership structures. For example, Norlandia reported multiple individual and corporate owners, subsidiary companies, holding companies, and related companies.
