  Nursing sector bosses hail plan to fund social care reforms Bosses said the £86,000 cap on personal care costs - funded by a rise in national insurance - was a 'once-in-a-generation' opportunity to improve social care. Under the scheme, the state will start to contribute towards the cost of someone's care once their assets start to fall below £100,000. © Provided by Daily Mail Boris Johnson said the new system would protect the elderly from the 'catastrophic fear of losing everything' The hope is that this will mean fewer people have to sell their homes to pay for care – and they will be able to pass on more to their children.

Burnley will wear a one-off strip emblazoned with the Alzheimer ' s Society tomorrow as they aim to raise thousands for the dementia charity. Sean Dyche's side face Rochdale in the Carabao Cup third round at Turf Moor and have struck a deal with kit sponsors Spreadex Sports to change their home shirts on World Alzheimer ' s Day. Both Burnley and their principal sponsor are committed to handing the charity a £5 donation each from every third kit sold and expect the total to reach a substantial five-figure sum.
