Please could you send me the following info in csv file:
- The typical cost that would be charged to a member of the public, for a care home, per week, procured by the council (assuming no reliefs/discounts applicable). Please could you tell me the weekly price for residential care, nursing care and nursing care with dementia. For each pls can you itemise seperately the personal care element.
- The typical cost that would be charged to a member of the public, for an hour of home care procured by the council (assuming no reliefs/discounts applicable). Please could you itemise seperately the personal care element if one exists.
For clarity the above is for elderly care.
