  • Care home fees rise faster to keep up with the minimum wage

    Care home fees rise faster to keep up with the minimum wage

    30.08.16 Care homes costs have risen 10 times faster than pensioner incomes, according to a five-year study by Prestige Nursing & Care. They found that the average annual cost of a care home stay has broken the £30,000 barrier and is more than double the average pensioner income. Prestige managing director Jonathan Bruce said: “It is particularly alarming that care home costs have risen almost 10 times as much as pensioner incomes in real terms, with the result that older people will find the challenge of paying for care even more out of their reach...Care workers and nurses absolutely deserve the boost they have received to their pay, but the increase in the minimum wage has no doubt pushed the cost of elderly care upwards.” For more on the Prestige study, CLICK HERE

    Rachael Litherland kicks off new JDC - out now!

    26.08.16 Look out for the new issue of the Journal of Dementia Care, where we are delighted to welcome Innovations in Dementia director Rachael Litherland as guest editorial writer. As ever the new JDC brings you news, opinion and in-depth coverage on a fast-changing scene. As Rachael says: “Writing the editorial for this edition of the Journal coincides with my return from maternity leave. The political climate has seen significant change in the nine months of my absence - a new prime minister, early engagement with people with dementia and carers around the development of the 2020 vision on dementia, and the implications for dementia research work post-Brexit.” Indeed this issue of JDC canvasses opinion on what will happen after Brexit, considers the future of the Cameron era PM’s Challenge on dementia, asks how service commissioners can improve services for Gypsies and Travellers, focuses on innovative projects such as Golf Days Out and Paro the robotic seal pup.
