Care Home Costs
Care home costs can vary and depending on factors such as location and whether you require residential care or additional nursing care, can be expensive, with nursing care increasing your care home costs significantly.
On average you can expect to pay around £28,500 a year, in care home costs, rising to over £37,500 a year if nursing care is also required.
Care home costs are not the same in all parts of the UK, there are variations amongst regions.
