Deciding between residential care home costs vs. nursing care home costs

Regardless of where you live, care home costs are likely to be much higher for nursing care homes, where specialist nursing care is provided in a 24/7 environment, compared to residential care homes, which do not provide nursing care.

If you are ready to compare care home providers, make sure you first book a care needs assessment. The care needs assessment will identify whether your care needs require specialist nursing support. Your local authority will support you in arranging a care needs assessment, which is provided free of charge.
