Care Cap Calculator:
This calculator has been designed to help people’s understanding of how the £72,000 care cap will affect them financially from April 2016. The 'Dilnot' care cap model is still in development and the Department of Health will be making further announcements between now and its implementation, clarifying how the cap will work. This calculator should be used for illustrative purposes only, for residential and nursing care.
