Care for the elderly at home

It costs about £250 a day to keep a patient on a ward, £150 a day in a care home and £100 a day for domiciliary care (which is most people’s preference).

As Alice Thomson says in this piece, “It is obvious, morally and financially, that the elderly should remain in their own homes as long as possible.”
