The funding of care costs is a topic of discussion not limited to those who are in receipt of care and support or on the brink of entering a care home.
The cost of care in the UK exceeds inflation year on year and with the ever-changing legislative strategy on how the cost of care will be funded it is understandable that this topic is high priority for a large proportion of society.
