Care Fees – the Numbers


After my last blog, I have had a request for some rough figures for care fees. I think lots of people have wild ideas about this, and how it works, so hopefully this will be a good basis to at least start conversations. The last survey that I read said that care fees in the UK average at £604 per week. In the area that I work in North Nottinghamshire, care fees average around £650 per week.  That’s around £2,600 per month.  Or around £33,000 per year. In the same survey, it was claimed that people spend, on average, just over 2 years in case before they die.  So, on average, people who require residential care pay £66,000 in care fees. These are stark, and quite scary figures.  So it is definitely worth taking some advice as early as possible, to see what, if anything, you can do to prepare for this. If you would like to know more on this subject, please get in touch.
