Local Authority Homes for Older People – Setting the Standard Charge

Decision Maker: The Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Allweddol decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


It was resolved –


·        That whilst the Council acknowledges the costs incurred within residential care, the actual cost of delivery is not fully reflected in the charge to residents.

·        That in line with the savings proposal made to remove the subsidy given to self-funders between 2019-20 and 2021-22, the increase for those contributing towards the cost of care is set at 3% plus each user’s share of the reduction in the subsidy given to self-funders.

·        That the fee for 2020-21 be therefore set at £722.21 (£664.11 + 3% + (½ x £76.35)
