A ten year vision for adult social care has been published which will help provide greater choice for those receiving care and certainty over costs.
People who need care, the social care workforce and unpaid carers will benefit from the ten-year vision for adult social care published today.
The white paper is part of the government’s wider social care plans, backed by £5.4 billion, which for the first time provides a limit to the cost of care for everyone in the adult social care system, and significantly increases state support.
The transformed social care system will apply to people in both residential and at home care and will set daily living costs at a lower rate than originally proposed, helping people save more money. It will mean nobody is forced to sell their homes in their lifetime.
