cost of residential care
For some moving out of their home and into new accommodation where they can have all their needs met by a dedicated team makes the most sense. According to the latest industry figures the average price of residential care is approximately:
£28,500 per annum for a residential care home, or
£37,500 per annum if additional nursing is required
in home care costs
For others they may decide that receiving care in their own home is more suitable for them. On average this service can cost:
£11,000 per annum if you receive 14 hours of care a week from a carer, or
£30,000 per annum for receiving full-daytime care, or
Up to £65,000 per annum for night and day care in your home.

However, while this may be a useful guide, discussing your care plan with an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) may give you the peace of mind you require. At Willow Financial Planning we can help you prepare for the future. Our team of highly-qualified IFAs can sit down with you and discuss your requirements and help you develop saving and investment plans that meet your future care needs.
