The Council is facing a rising cost of new
placements, which is driving up the average cost of placements. The
Council’s expenditure on older people’s care homes is
increasing by 5% annually for residential homes and 12% annually
for nursing homes.
The Council seeks to increase capacity through Council owned older people’s nursing homes to be operated by either Nexxus or an external provider.
