The Government refuses to commit to capping the cost of care

The Government refuses to commit to capping the cost of care

for the elderly, saying it has to wait until the spending review.

Anyone who though the Government were finally going to resolve the issue of long term care fees is in for a disappointment.

Capping the cost of care was raised as an issue by Tony Blair back in 1988.  It has been rumbling on as an issue since then.

If you want to live in cloud cuckoo land, you can ignore the issue, but if you want to look at capping the cost of care for your family, you need to take action well in advance.

Care fees for many folk are now running in excess of £1,000 a week.
