Abstract

Approximately 30 per cent of older people in residential and nursing homes fund their own care. This figure should be seen in the context of the overall level of provision of places in residential and nursing homes. In Great Britain, such homes provide approximately 460,000 places for older people. This corresponds to approximately one place for every ten people aged 75 or over. This summary presents findings from a survey commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions to explore the circumstances of self-funded residents. A full report of the survey (Netten et al., 2002) is available (see below).
