Care Home Vs Granny Flat
Unfortunately, due to certain circumstances families are put into situations where they find themselves stepping up to the responsibility of looking after an older member of the family. And let’s be honest, it’s a known fact that this type of responsibility can put a lot pressure and strain on the family relationships! And when this does happen, what do you think the family end up considering?
The answer is simply – a care home!
Now depending on what part of the UK you live, research shows that the average cost of a residential care home can range from £27,000 to £39,000 per annum. But can increase to £35,000 – £55,000 per year if nursing care is required. However, this is known to vary hugely across the country. You can also pay higher fees for care homes with more comfortable surroundings and better fitted out facilities.
So, when making such a vital decision on your care needs, whether that’s remaining at home or needing to move to a care home, it helps to prioritise your care needs.
- For instance, what does ‘home’ mean to you? Is it comfort, security?
- In later life, what will ‘home’ stand for? Closeness to family, friends, GP
- What will become more difficult down the line? Going up and down the stairs, getting in and out of the bath?
