Anger as council cuts force care costs up – Health Care Services

 

Under Peterborough City Council’s proposals day care costs could go up from £2 to £35 a day while home care, where two carers are required to go into a resident’s house, is set to double from £13.16 to £26.32 an hour.

Short-term, respite stays in residential homes could also increase from £241.50 per week to around £400 per week.

Council chiefs say the cuts, revealed to the council’s Scrutiny Commission for Health Issues this week will save it £80,000 a year.
