Is the cost of care justified? On average, for a residential care home you will be spending £24,500 a year, whilst for a nursing home it’s £34,500*. Contrast those figures with the recently published Land Registry report on property prices- the average house is £161,183*. So how long could we afford to stay in the home of our choice?
