Care Home Fees Annual Increase 2022 Impact Assessment
Devon County Council (DCC) commissions independent sector care homes to deliver residential and nursing care home services to eligible people in Devon. Eligibility for financial support towards the costs of a care home placement is based upon an assessment of the person’s social care needs. Where appropriate to meet that person’s needs, DCC may arrange (contract for) a placement within a care home for that individual. This impact assessment covers the annual review of care home fees and the increase to the fee rates from 4th April 2022 for the 2022-23 financial year and applies to all care home fees funded by DCC.
