I have just looked into residential care for a friend. The prices are extortionate. £1000 plus per week for just the basic care? How can you justify this price? She has worked all her life, saved for years. Worked hard to buy her own home which she now has to sell to pay these extortionate fees. STOP THIS NOW!

If my mum had cancer she wouldn't have to fund her care, we the families and carers, are usually getting on ourselves. I, for one, am tired, aching and scared of how bad this will get.

I'm signing because its unfair that pensioners etc get penalised for everything when they have worked all their lives paying taxes and every other thing the government charges them for. Its disgraceful and should be stopped.

If you don’t own your house it’s paid for for you. Why then should someone have to sell their house when they have worked all their life to pay for it. Disgusting it’s one rule for one and one rule for the other. Surely this is discrimination at its highest

My mum is in a care home and self funding. It’s wrong. Someone works all their life, savings gone, house purchased has to be used to pay care home fees.

It is a travesty we do not care for our elders.
