Care for elderly should be capped at £35,000

4th July 2011

An official inquiry will recommend that the bill elderly people in England have to pay for care should be capped at £35,000 to help avoid thousands of people having to sell their house or lose all their savings.

The details will come in the report of the Commission on Funding of Care and Support in England, which was chaired by Andrew Dilnot. He said the cap would take away the fear that people would lose everything that they had built up during their lifetime.
