Pensioners will have their long-term care bill capped at £75,000. — but Thousands Will Still be Forced to Sell Their Homes. Under Coalition plans, the elderly will get state protection against never-ending care home fees for the first time, but they will have to take out private insurance to cover them up to the new limit. Pensioners will still have to pay care bills up to £75,000 with campaigners for the elderly fearing that thousands of families will be forced to sell their homes.
