Families ‘misled’ over care fees

Another example of where “Guidelines” is a word that should be removed from the language of care:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8005402.stm

“Families of vulnerable elderly people are being misled over possible help with care home fees, says a charity.

Age Concern & Help the Aged says some people struggling to sell a home to pay fees are not being offered council no-interest schemes they are entitled to.”

Postcode lottery strikes again!  It is so unfair that it should depend on where you live as to  whether your home has to be sold to fund your care, if you are not entitled to free care.
