How can we help you?
The Prime Minister has promised his critics that he will address the rising costs of supporting Britain’s rapidly ageing population but progress on funding reform appears to have stalled.
In 2010, one of the Coalition’s first acts was to launch a commission on the future funding of elderly care, to prevent tens of thousands of frail pensioners being forced to sell their homes to pay for help each year.
However, the government is understood to have ruled out providing extra money for the system and there is little hope that a plan for funding costly care services will be included in this week’s Queen’s Speech.”
