Nursing Home Costs – The Facts and Figures
A home that simply provides personal care for an individual, such as help with washing, dressing and giving medication is known as a care home. If an individual requires medical or nursing care they will require care within a nursing home.
If you or someone you know, have reached the stage in their life where they feel it has become necessary to move in to a home where support is provided, it’s important that you are aware of all of your options, as well as the likelihood of nursing home costs, before you make a final decision.
Nursing home costs can vary around the UK, depending on where you live in the UK nursing home costs could set you back around £37,500 a year. Furthermore, if you require specialized care, there are nursing homes with trained staff to care for individuals with specific health needs. However, nursing home costs may be more expensive once again.
