The weekly cost of staying at a care home is £848 on average but varies dramatically across the country, new research reveals. At the extremes, prices range from £1,488 a week in Islington in London to £621 in Blaenau Gwent in Wales, according to figures from insurer Legal & General. The local cost breakdown comes as politicians urge the Government to launch a long-term plan to fund social care, and to integrate the system more closely with the NHS.
