Care & Repair England have developed a guide to the main changes being brought about by the Care Act.

The Care Act changes the rules in England about who gets support for care costs from local councils and how much they have to pay for care. The changes start in April 2015, with some starting in April 2016.

This guide is not a detailed explanation of all the changes, but is an overview about some of the main changes which people need to take into account when thinking about their housing and care choices. As the new legislation is so complicated, it is recommend that  people take independent, specialist advice about the changes that will affect them. First Stop, Independent Age and AgeUK all offer specialist advice for older people – the contact details are at the end of our brief guide. Paying-for-Care-what-the-new-act-means
