Sickened by Delays

A woman has said she is "sickened" by the delay on the cap on care costs.

Paula Conner, 75, told the BBC she pays £1,200 a week for a care home for her husband Mick, 89, who has dementia.

"I don't know what will happen to my husband now that the cap has been delayed," Mrs Conner told the BBC. “He is 14 years older than me and with fees of more than £62,000 a year, Mick's savings won't last more than two years at the most. It will have used up the savings I had hoped would support me in later life.”
