Liberal Democrats on Adult Social Care and Care Homes

Liberal Democrats in government are legislating to ensure that every council in the country puts in place a scheme to allow people to defer payment of care home bills.

This means that for the first time the right to defer payment will be a universal offer across the country. The fine details, as you would expect, are being consulted on now, but we are clear that this will deliver on the promise that people will not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for care.
