Just trying to get my head around this subject!! My folks have been self funders now since Jan 2010 (both were admitted to a home at the suggestion of Social services as both have Alzheimers). So far, they have spent the proceeds of the house sale (£190k each) and are now using savings. When this Care Act comes into play in 2016, and assuming they are still with us, will they automatically qualify for support - i.e. will the money they have spent be considered? I have looked but cannot find a definitive answer.
