A new guide has been produced by Caring Homes, which provides an overview of how to obtain the funding for residential care placements.
The way care and support services are funded in the UK is constantly changing, with £72k lifetime caps and more generous upper limits for means testing set to come in from April 2016. Going into care can already be a stressful process, making a clear approach more important than ever. 96% of over 65s have made no financial plans to pay for care.
