Information

In early September 2021, the government announced the latest in a series of proposed caps on the amount that any person will have to pay for care costs in their lifetime. Scheduled for implementation in October 2023, the proposed cap is £86,000. How does this affect the advice that we are giving to clients now about their future care arrangements?

  • Overview of the main paying for care rules in England and in Wales: means testing
  • Care home costs and care at home costs
  • The care cap: section 15 Care Act 2014 and what will be different
  • Calculations: how much will our clients have to spend before they reach the £86,000 cap
  • What our advice needs to capture: positive changes and potential tensions
