LOCAL AUTHORITY RESIDENTIAL CARE STANDARD CHARGE FOR 2019-2020 pdf icon PDF 176 KB

Minutes:

The Executive Board Member considered a report recommending that theStandard Charge for Local Authority Older People residential care homes be increased from £587.02 to £612.21 for Mainstream beds and from £800.30 to £837.50 for EMI beds. An increase of 4.29% for mainstream beds and 4.65% for EMI beds was attributed to inflation, a significant increase in staffing costs in relation to the National Living Wage, as well as a lack of efficiency savings due to considerable efficiencies identified in previous years.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(i)            that the Standard Charge for Local Authority Older People residential care homes be increased from £587.02 to £612.21 for Mainstream beds and from £800.30 to £837.50 for EMI beds.

 

(ii)          for residents placed by this authority into our own Local Authority Homes the effective date for the new rates is 1st July 2019. For those residents placed in our homes by other Local Authorities the effective date for the new charges to those authorities is the 1st July 2019
