Why care costs are spiralling at up to twice inflation 

The average cost of a care home place has almost doubled over the past two decades and is now nearing £1,000 a week, according to the latest data. 
A cruel combination of short supply, care home operators falling into financial difficulty and tightening local authority budgets means private payers – those who get no assistance with fees – are especially hard hit.
