Age UK statement on the news that the Government is preparing to announce plans to cap care costs for the first time
MIchelle Mitchell, Charity Director General of Age UK said: 'This is really encouraging news. If the Government puts a £35,000 cap on lifetime care costs, it would be a real leap forward for many older people, lifting them and their families out of the fear caused by spiralling care costs.
'It would be a courageous and compassionate legacy that could help transform our social care system."
