My mother-in-law paid £1350 a week last year in Kent ,bordering with London. There was no nursing care, but it was a new home, hence no doubt the cost. We had to find somewhere quickly and this one had vacancies. We were pleased with the care provided though. The LA would only pay upto £500. Mother in law passed away before the LA got involvedActually this IS in Sussex (it's a dementia care home, if you need dementia + nursing that does cost more). I believe the LA rate is only about £450. If it was £900 my mother's care home would still be accepting LA clients - they stopped accepting them a few years ago because the LA no longer pays enough for the standard of care they want to provide.
When my mother's money runs out (if she's still alive) she will have to go wherever the LA decides, I won't be paying a top up.
