The Care Act has started to change adult social care in England and in particular how long term care is will be funded in England. Although large parts of it have already been introduced, due to budgetary constraints many of the funding changes were postponed until at least April 2020.

However, both the proposed Cap on personal contributions - expected to be originally set at £72,000 in April 2016, and increasing the Upper Capital Threshold from £23,250 to £118,000 were postponed until 2020 at the earliest.So for many, the status quo remains, for the foreseeable future at least. Consequently, if you live and need care in England and have capital (including in many instances the value of your home) exceeding just £23,250 (2016/17) you will deemed to have to pay for your own care.
