Will your property be protected under the proposed social care reforms? - CAREAWARE COMMENT

Former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron described the means test system that forces people to sell their homes to pay for care as being cruel.

More than 13 years later, the current Prime Minister’s plans didn’t mention anything specific about protecting the family home and with the new means tested support threshold to be set at £100,000 – just 37% of the average house value in England, it seems that we will still be expected to sell our homes to pay for our care fees.
