Nursing Home Costs

Nursing Home fees are significantly higher than those of a residential care home. The reason for this is the higher level of training necessary for the staff and the necessity of having qualified nurses on staff. The needs of the residents in nursing homes are often more complex and require more time and attention from the staff leading to higher fees overall.

The more complex the requirements of the resident, typically the higher the cost of accommodation, it is not uncommon to find fees in excess of £900 a week for nursing home care.
