CONSUMER magazine Which? says older people in Cheshire are paying ‘expensive’ charges for home help.
The Which? publication says the elderly in Cheshire West and Chester are forking out £18.20 an hour for help with tasks such as dressing, washing and bathing, which it describes as “relatively expensive”.
And older people in Cheshire East are paying £19.80 an hour which is the second highest charge in England and Wales. Services in Scotland are free.
Which? spokesman Adam Williams said: “The average across the country is £12.83....so they are relatively expensive compared to other authorities, especially because some areas provide it for free.”
My comment: My previous post comment also appear rather appropriate to this one.
