Jeremy Hunt is due to confirm the pre-announced details of Social Care reform later today.
The BBC summarises what’s known about the proposals here:
The government is due to announce its “fully-funded solution” to the problem of elderly people in England who cannot afford social care.
It is expected to include a £75,000 cap on the costs people pay for care and a rise in the threshold for means-tested support from £23,250 to £123,000.
Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said the “scandal” of many people selling homes to pay care bills must be tackled.
Do these proposals go far enough?
Does anyone understand them?
Will significant numbers of people still have to sell their homes?
Over to you!
