How Will Changes to Legislation Affect State Support in England For Care Funding From April 2016?
Care and support services are means-tested and services are not free to everyone. The Government has announced plans for 2016 to put a limit on how much people might pay.
This calculator has been designed to help people’s understanding of how the £72,000 care cap will affect them financially from April 2016. The ‘Dilnot’ care cap model is still in development and the Department of Health will be making further announcements between now and its implementation, clarifying how the cap will work. This calculator should be used for illustrative purposes only, for residential and nursing care.
