Labour pledges free personal care for over-65s in England

23 September 2019 – BBC News

Labour is promising free personal care in England for over-65s who need it most, so they will not have to pay for help with dressing, washing and meals.

At the moment, state help with the cost of home or residential help is only available for those who have assets below £23,250.

A future Labour Government would pass legislation to enshrine a right to free personal care for those most in need, consulting on “eligibility criteria to ensure this system works for all“.
