SW 1: Home Care Costs per Hour for people aged 65 or over
Summary definition

Home Care is delivered in the client's own home (including sheltered housing) and may include personal care, domestic help, laundry services, shopping services, and care attendant schemes. This indicator deals with costs for people over 65.

Why do we measure this?

This is one of the largest expenditures in Social Work and as such is an important indicator. With the increasing shift in the balance of care to the community, any efficiency from councils could be usefully shared.
