Accessing Care in 2016 and Beyond - A Guide for Over 65's!
The Care Act 2014 has introduced wide ranging changes to how social care is commissioned, delivered and paid for. London Councils has done a considerable amount of policy analysis and lobbying on the funding and other implications of the Care Act 2014 on London.
They have also developed a step-by-step guide for over 65s, which sets out how the 2016 reforms are likely to impact and whether they will qualify for support from their council or not.
With some of the measures coming in 2015 and the rest in 2016 it is critical that local authorities are ready and prepared to deliver their statutory responsibilities as set out in the Act.
