Social Care Reform

Changes to how care payments are calculated come into play in October 2023.  1. There will be an £86,000 cap on care costs across an individual's lifetime. 2. Anyone with less than £20,000 of assets won't have to pay anything towards their care from their assets. 3. People with between £20,000 and £100,000 of assets will be eligible for some means-tested financial support on a sliding scale. The new upper limit of £100,000 is more than four times the current limit of £23,250. This means more people will be eligible for some state support than before.
