It’s very rare for someone to require round-the-clock care. The time a person spends actually receiving care within a nursing home is generally no more than an hour or two a day. In our villages a similar level of care would cost between £56 and £182 per week. This takes into consideration the basic state funding allowance, available to everyone and not means tested.
When you compare our costs to a good-standard care or nursing home which would typically charge fees well over £1,000 a week, the value within our villages becomes indisputable
