Cost of care


Fur­ther to your let­ters about the high cost of care homes, my hus­band is in a home and the monthly fees for it work out at just un­der £10 an hour. For this he has trained car­ers look­ing af­ter him 24 hours a day, plus three ex­cel­lent meals a day, and daily en­ter­tain­ment. In con­trast, when he was at home I paid a carer more than £20 an hour just to get him up, washed and dressed. June Green, Sur­rey
