Payment ‘cap’ on social care to be introduced

Source MS Society
The Government has announced that it plans to cap the "potentially huge cost" of social care for the elderly and those with disabilities living in England, but has not outlined what the cap will be or how it will be funded.

Some media reports suggest the cap will start at £75,000 - a figure which has not been confirmed by the Government. This means that people would need to self fund £75,000 of their care before being covered by Government funding.  Read more here.
