Realistically, that's £14 a day for his bed and full board, laundry, cleaning, personal care and anything else I've missed. You won't find a nursing home charging that rate. Your proposed increase takes it to around £20 a day. Still a bargain.

In addition to She Wolf's comments, I'd add that the continuity of nursing staff and care workers allows the caree to build relationships. My dad hated the intrusion of strangers in his home and I think I'd feel the same. In the care home, he talked with the staff and they got to know him as a perso...
