Social care ‘should be transformed into pension-style system’, says report

The social care system should be reformed so people pay for what they want while the state covers what they need, according to a new report.

The Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) think tank said a system where the state guarantees a reasonable level of care and accommodation, with individuals encouraged to top up their provision beyond that via insurance, is preferable to the one proposed by the Dilnot Commission in 2011.
