Our new vision
Local authority charging rules differ when a stay in a care home is temporary, rather than permanent.
Some people go into a care home on a temporary basis to give themselves or their carers a break‚ or while they are recuperating from an illness.
Others enter a home temporarily for a ‘trial’ period to decide whether they want to live permanently in that home.
Temporary care may also be part of an ‘intermediate care’ package‚ which should be free of charge.
