Prime Minister - Please Re-think the "Dementia Tax"

I brought my son up single handed and started with nothing, worked hard, scrimped, saved and went without to buy my house.  My son is on the autistic spectrum and struggles with financial and personal decision making so it is vital to me that I leave him with a safe and secure home for life when I'm gone.  My health is failing and now, under the new Social Care rules I will not be able to do this as I haven't got much in the way of savings and my house will have to be sold to pay for my care. Others who have not worked, saved or strived to achieve a better life will not have to pay a penny. How is that fair?  I, and many others like me, are being penalised for working hard, being responsible and trying to provide for our families futures. How is that fair? I understand and am willing to pay what I can towards my care costs but I don't want the security I have spent a lifetime building for myself and my son taken away because I am unfortunate enough to have developed health issues.

I AM ASKING THERESA MAY, OUR PM, TO RECONSIDER AND RING FENCE ALL PROPERTY VALUED BELOW £175,000 AND EXEMPT SUCH PROPERTIES FROM THE SOCIAL CARE COST CALCULATIONS. THIS AMOUNT IS WELL BELOW THE AVERAGE HOUSE PRICE IN THE UK. PEOPLE WHO ARE  " JUST ABOUT MANAGING" FALL INTO THIS GROUP AND WE ARE THE PEOPLE SHE MADE HER PLEDGE TO HELP. I AM ASKING HER TO DELIVER ON HER PROMISE.THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE THE ONES TO BENEFIT FROM OUR HARD WORK AND EFFORT, OUR FAMILIES ARE.

PLEASE SIGN AND SUPPORT MY PETITION AND ASK THE GOVERNMENT TO GIVE HARD WORKING, DECENT PEOPLE PEACE OF MIND AND ALLOW THEM TO ACHIEVE THEIR LIFE LONG EFFORTS TO PROTECT THEIR LEGACIES AND THEIR FAMILIES FROM HARDSHIP IN THE FUTURE.
