Market Position Statement 2015-2016
3.4 Impact on weekly costs
Whilst the numbers of home care and ISF hours have increased, this has been driven by a reduced demand for direct payments and a significant reduction in the numbers of people placed in 24 hour care.
The weekly cost of commissioned home care, ISFs, direct payments and care home placements in December 2015 stood at £694,105, a small reduction on the weekly expenditure of £715,718 for services commissioned in January 2015.
Weekly costs in these areas tends to stay around the £700k mark.
