Response to FMF


I agree, the mind set still is 'This is my house, why do I need to sell it? I've 'paid in' all my life!'



However........ any assets over 23k are 'taken' by the council if they provide the care.
They also take any income over 25 a week.


It's a reasonable system.

Depends on your definition of reasonable I suppose.

Lots of couples are now going for the "Tenants in common " rather than "joint ownership " to avoid their home being sold out from under the partner who doesn't need care.
