Paying for care under the Care Act 2014

The Care Act repeals the old system under which there was a duty to charge for residential care services and a power to charge for residential care. Section 14 of the Act, new regulations and guidance set out the new system under which authorities have a power but not a duty to charge for care and support. This session will look at what is likely to carry over from the old system and what is new, including the “guiding principles” for charging, new deferred payments regime, the repeal of local authorities’ powers to place a charge, charges and “self funders” and possible charging of carers. We will also look forward to the implementation of the “care cap” in 2016.
