FOI Request - Care Home Local Authority Fee
We are looking to obtain an indication of the standard local authority fees Moray Council pays for eligible elderly people in care homes or, if no standard flat rate is paid, an indication of the minimum/maximum/average rates paid for each category of care listed below.
2022/23 financial year rates:
1. Personal care / residential, elderly frail
2. Personal care / residential, elderly dementia
3. Nursing, elderly frail
4. Nursing, elderly dementia
Please could you also state if your quoted nursing fees are inclusive or exclusive of the current NHS-funded nursing care (FNC) contribution.
Care Home rates are set nationally in Scotland. The information requested in this FOI can be found at - https://www.careinfoscotland.scot/topics/care-homes/paying-care-home-fees/. This information is therefore exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, information otherwise accessible. Nursing fees are differentiated between residential rate and nursing rate, and they are inclusive of any FNC.
