Driving in the car this afternoon I caught an item on Radio 2 with Jeremy Vine about people from the UK sending their relatives to care homes in Thailand. Jeremy quoted £1,000 a week cost in the UK for a dementia care home (probably quite optimistic in some regions!) and that in Thailand the cost is around £750 a week, where residents get complete one to one care (presumably 24 hours). It was also said that the homes are very nice, good food, nice outlook, etc. A lady from the UK was saying it's not an ideal for some, but with the current situation with social care and lack of places in homes, more people are looking at this as an option. I guess the staff may or may not speak English. I think they said the homes are run by UK/American companies. Not sure if anyone else caught this. Have made note to self to catch the full item on Sounds.
