Yes snugglebunny - sad but true.
I was surprised (annoyed even?) when stan livedeath made his comment above - especially as he mentioned earlier in this same thread that his wife apparently works as a senior carer in a care home
annoyed even ? ..... tough!
what has my wifes job got to do with care home fees? where she works its £600 a week--for self funders. they also take council funded residents as well...but i dont know the fees charged to the council.
BUT--bear in mind a lot of homes struggle to find self funders. my late father paid his own--i negotiated £1900 a month--he was there 3 years and got excellent care NOT a jar jireh place either
so they rely on council funded clients to fill beds. self funders are the icing on the cake.
by the way--for what its worth--my ex wife was also in the care profession--in fact the registered manager of a 20 bedded place. so i have a fair hearsay understanding of how care home economics work.
