With higher life expectancy and ongoing improvements in healthcare, larger numbers of us are likely to require some kind of care at some stage during our lifetimes.
The average cost of care in a UK residential care home in 2017 was £700 per week*. Meeting these costs is a challenge for anyone, particularly if reliant on pension income.
