Age UK: Govt should introduce lifetime cap on care costs

Age UK press release

Michelle Mitchell, Charity Director General for Age UK said:

“Implementing the Dilnot recommendations and introducing a lifetime cap on the amount any individual has to pay for their care and support would lift one of the great fears of becoming older.

“Too many people at the moment are faced with spiralling care costs and the unanswered dread of what happens when their money runs out.

“Introducing a cap would, Age UK believes, provide a fair and sustainable partnership between individual and state. It is difficult for us to comment on how the state’s contribution should be funded until we have concrete proposals from the Government  as to the level of the cap and means test threshold. We appreciate that the country is facing difficult financial times but we must be careful that the wider implications of any potential source of funding are fully considered.”
