Care Act 2014
The Care Act has changed how care and support for adults is provided. This is to make it clearer, easier to access, and be more consistent across the country.
The act aims to update the system to keep up with the needs of an aging population, and places more responsibility on us. It gives individuals, and carers, more control over the help received and explains what can be expected from the care system. From April 2020 the act will cap the amount anyone has to pay towards their care.
