The UK government in the UK is likely to support the proposal put forward by Andrew Dilnot, an Oxford economist, which says that there should a lifetime cap on social care costs in order.
The move will help people and avoid the need for some families to sell their homes for paying medical bills. UK Prime Minister David Cameron now supports Andrew Dilnot's proposal, according to some media reports. The review by Andrew Dilnot, which proposes a £1.7bn scheme for funding long-term care, now has the backing of the top leaders in the government.
A new report that was commissioned by the government has also recommended raising the level of savings that the people in residential homes were allowed to have before they had to pay for their health care. It is believed that the government had earlier not planned to agree the proposal but Mr. Cameron has now given a go ahead for implementing the measures suggested in order to help patients.
Mr. Dilnot has said expressed delight over the indications that the government will endorse the plan for improving healthcare. "I am very pleased - the reason I wanted to do this in the first place was it was both urgent and possible to make a difference," he said.
