The governments mid term review has given its clearest indication yet that it will limit individuals’ liability for long-term care costs.

The foreword to the review promises “two big reforms to provide dignity in old age: an improved state pension that rewards saving, and more help with the costs of long-term care”.

HomeCareDirect are keeping a close eye on these changes. We hope that any cap on individual contributions is at a level that allows adequate protection against the high care costs, that can see people struggling to afford the support that is so vital to them.
