I am aghast. I have been advised that my MILs fees are to go up by 8% from 1st April to £940 per week. A scant justification refers to having to pay higher wages to reduce staff turnover and use of agency staff; having to improve fire safety standards and refurbish the home. Does anyone have any ideas as how best to try and tackle this. Given that the RPI is c1% this seems highly excessive. If they increase fees at this rate then my MIL will have exhausted her entire capital including the value of her house in next to no time.
