Overview of the Act
The most comprehensive overhaul of social care since 1948. Legislation consolidated and modernised into a single legal framework.

Paradigm shift!
Social care no longer about disability or ill-health. New focus on wellbeing and prevention.
the Care ACT 2014
All carers will be entitled to an assessment. If a carer is eligible for support for particular needs, they will have a legal right to receive support for those needs, just like the people they care for.
Info & advice
deferred payment scheme
. This means no one should be forced to sell their home during their lifetime to pay for their residential care.

how the care and support system works
what services are available locally and how to access those services
how to raise safeguarding concerns
financial advice and where to get independent specialist advice
Safeguarding Adults Boards are now statutory. Core membership is prescribed in the Act.

Partners have a duty to co-operate with the Council on safeguarding matters and to supply information upon request.

Serious Case Reviews have been given a statutory status in circumstances where there is serious neglect/abuse or death.

Consultation on the draft regulations & guidance
Part One comes into force
Cap on costs comes into force
Regulations & guidance laid
Only assessed eligible needs count towards the cap.

Does not include living costs. A person in residential care will be expected to pay £12k to meet their 'hotel costs'.

Carers with eligible needs are excluded from the cap.
Some T&Cs
Older people = £72k

Working age people = 40-42K (tbc in regs)
