In order to make things easier for the elderly people, the UK Government has decided to bring some changes in the social care funding. The changes, which are expected to be introduced on Wednesday, will enable the elderly to move across in the UK.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said that the reforms, which he is going to introduce on the above mentioned day, will also include eligibility criteria of elderly, who will be entitled to have all the facilities, being mentioned in the social care funding.
Lansley said that he had a brief discussion with David Cameron and they have found the proposal of Andrew Dilnot, an Oxford economist, to be genuine and have decided to implement it. Andrew's proposal will cost the government around £1.7bn, and will ensure that elderly gets long term care.
"We know the current system of eligibility is confusing and unclear. By introducing a minimum eligibility threshold, people will have a much clearer picture of what to expect", said Lansley.
One of the other main reasons for announcing the funding is to aware people to what to expect from the government, as Cameron has cleared that they will not be able to fully support the scheme.
