Social care in England – Dilnot report

An independent report into elderly care in England, commissioned by the UK Government and headed by Andrew Dilnot, has been released today.

The Dilnot report recommends that a person’s lifetime contribution towards his or her social care costs in England should be capped at £35,000.

The report also recommends that the means-tested threshold in England, above which people are liable for their full care costs, should be increased from £23,250 to £100,000.

The Dilnot report can be found here.
