Self-funders paying increased residential care fees
A study by Age UK has found that average care home fees had risen by as much as 14% in the last 12 months. The situation has arisen mainly due to local authorities cutting back on the amount they pay for state assisted residents, with private care home operators increasing fees for other residents to make up the difference.
London is one of the worst-hit areas, with average charges up by £4,400 from a year ago to stand at £35,300. Charges in East Anglia stood at £28,800 a year while in the North East and Cumbria they were at £25,300.
