Also those already in Residential Care Homes pre pension age are not going to be able to contribute as much for their care as transfer to ESA from IB/SDA + Income support is a lower payout weekly along with then the possible move onto Universal Credit which of course will be tilted to be lower still.

It seems that the Social Care bill for those in care homes will be rocketing.
