Paying for Care home fees can be expensive, with the average costs of care in some areas of the UK rising to around £33,000 a year for residential care alone. This figure has been estimated to be about £45,000 a year including nursing care costs. However, other areas of the UK see costs that are around £25,000 for residential care and around £35,000 including nursing care.
When faced with these expenses many people result to spending life savings, diverting their pensions and other income and some individuals end up selling their homes in order to make sure that they will be able to cover the cost of care. However, there is funding available provided by the NHS.
