Fair Cost of Care exercise
In December 2021, Government announced their intentions to reform social care which included a requirement for Local Authorities to undertake a Fair Cost of Care exercise.
The exercise required Local Authorities to survey and engage with over 65’s Care Homes (both residential and nursing) and 18+ Home Care providers to better understand the costs of delivering care across West Northamptonshire. Government confirmed that “Fair” meant the median cost of delivering care.
West Northamptonshire has completed the exercise and are now in a position to publish the outcome, including the supporting documentation.
