Older people still face grave uncertainty because of the Tories’ social care policy vacuum – Julie Cooper


Cooper MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister
, commenting on the new joint
report on social care costs by Independent Age and the Institute and Faculty of
Actuaries, said:

people still face grave uncertainty over the cost of care because of the social
care policy vacuum created by a Tory Government bereft of ideas.

U-turned on their disastrous dementia tax policy the Tories failed to tell us
what the level of the cap on costs would be and they are now using a
long-awaited Green Paper to kick a decision on long-term social care funding
into the long grass.

will ease the crisis in social care by building a National Care Service based
on the principle of shared risk so no-one faces catastrophic care costs as they
do now.”
