Dataset presents information on residential and nursing care placements funded by Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs). A supported resident is a person receiving care in residential or nursing accommodation whose costs are met wholly or partly by a particular CASSR. Data are collected by type of care, age group, type of accommodation, type of stay (i.e. permanent or temporary) and location (within or outside the Council with Social Service Responsibilities). Information is collected on permanent and temporary admissions during the course of a year.
