What does the Government’s New Social Care Bill mean for you?
Join experts on social care, solicitor, Heledd Wyn and Chartered Financial Adviser, Mark Stone to understand what the new social care bill will really mean for you and your loved ones. This event will take place online, Thursday 25 November, 2 – 3pm.
From October 2023, the government has said that no one will pay more than £86,000 for the care they need for daily tasks such as washing, dressing, and eating.
But there are many reasons it’s not the silver bullet it may first appear.
The costs of living in a care home – food, energy bills and the accommodation will not count towards the cap.
And many will not even qualify for help. Spending on care at home will count towards the £86,000 cap – but – only for those who’ve been assessed by their local council as frail enough to be eligible. And only the frailest qualify, more than half requests are refused.
