CHANGES to the fees paid to care providers in Warrington from the council have been approved.
Councillors on the executive board voted to introduce the interim level of weekly fees offered to residential and nursing care homes.
A full review of care home fees is under way with plans to reach an agreed arrangement from April 1 next year.
Clr Pat Wright, executive member for health, wellbeing and adult social care, said: “This decision is all about the actual cost of quality care in Warrington and our approach and decisions must be driven by that principle and a focus on what is needed to protect and care for the most vulnerable in society.”
