Residents are being encouraged to have their say about proposed changes to residential and nursing care fees at an event this month.
A public meeting will be held from 6pm to 7.30pm on Monday, 29 April at County Hall on proposed changes to older age and working age adult care fees and changes to contractual arrangements.
The meeting forms part of the current six-week consultation with residential and nursing care providers that was launched on 26 March 2019. This is the second stage of the consultation and includes the proposed fee levels, which will be backdated from 8 April 2019, and plans for the transfer of current residents to the new system.
We’re fully committed to continuing to support those who need residential or nursing care and we want to set fees that are sustainable for care homes across Leicestershire, so they can continue to offer a quality service.
“I’m delighted with the responses we got from providers during the first stage of the consultation and want to ensure that we receive the widest possible range of feedback during this second stage to help shape our final proposals.Person:Jon Wilson, director of adults and communities
