In the 2016-2017 tax year, the average weekly cost of a room in a residential home in the UK was £600, and a room in a nursing home cost £841. This amounts to between £31,200 and £43,723 per year. However, these are average figures, so you or your relative could be looking at considerably higher or lower figures depending on where you live (source: Age UK).
