The article reports that market experts Laing & Buisson said that the rise in average local authority fees for independent older people's care homes will exceed inflation this year in Great Britain. They said that care homes have received an average fee increase from councils of 2.6% for 2009-10 but prices would increase between 2% and 2.5% this year, as a result of the economic downturn. It has also predicted that charges for privately-funded residents will also go up.
