    Two questions.
    Can anyone tell me when NHS nursing care contribution was introduced and do you have to have the care in a nursing home. Or can it be in your own home?

    Its called "continuing health care" and AFAIK its covers nursing home, my mum was on CHC 5 years ago so its older than that.

    It can in theory be offered at home as well however as nursing care means nursing needs you would need to consider how those needs would be met and by whom.
    CHC tend to assume nursing homes as the default so you might have to fight quite hard for any alternatives.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
