Is the UK better than HK for a retired 60 years old?

    I am worried about long term care if the need should arise so I want to have residence somewhere I can both afford and afford to hire a carer of some kind if it comes to that. Also second the need for good transport, already not keen on driving again if I don't have to...

    I guess in the UK you can rely on the NHS (?) if you need long term care? How does that work? Will you get a care worker paid for if you need help with bathing, household chores, etc. or is that on you to pay for?

    It keeps getting cut back but yes care is generally paid for even if that comes from a family member.

    If you have any savings in the UK, staying in a care home can cost in the region of £1000 per week. Maybe cheaper in HK?
