Understanding the Importance of Assessing Your Current Customer Experience (CX)
In the compassionate world of aged and disability care, delivering a remarkable customer experience (CX) is paramount. It’s about more than just fulfilling the basic needs of care recipients. It’s about ensuring they feel valued, respected, and understood.
Why? Because every interaction your business has with its care recipients shapes their perception of your services. In turn, these perceptions influence their level of trust in your care, satisfaction, and loyalty (1).
So, where does one start in this journey towards exceptional CX? The answer lies in assessing your current customer experience.
The Power of CX Assessment
Assessing your current CX resembles holding up a mirror to your business operations. It allows you to understand precisely how your care recipients perceive your services, identify gaps in your service delivery, and pinpoint opportunities for improvement (2).
This assessment is not a one-and-done task; it’s an ongoing process that helps you keep your finger on the pulse of your care recipients’ evolving needs and expectations.
But how can you conduct this assessment in a way that’s engaging, easy to implement, and provides valuable insights?
Simple Techniques for Effective CX Assessment
- Surveys: Regularly conducting short, focused surveys can provide quick and direct insights into how your care recipients feel about different aspects of your services.
- Feedback sessions: Organising regular feedback sessions with care recipients and their families can offer more profound, more nuanced insights.
- Observation: Simply observing interactions between your staff and care recipients can reveal a lot about the quality of your CX.

Securing Broader Buy-In

Share your CX assessment findings with them, involve them in brainstorming solutions, and encourage them to take ownership of CX improvement in their respective roles. This inclusive approach can foster a culture of continuous improvement and help ensure the success of your CX initiatives (4).
In conclusion, assessing your current CX is not just a crucial step towards enhancing your care recipients’ experience—it’s a powerful strategy for driving growth and success in your aged and disability care business.
