Revised and expanded for its second edition, this text tackles the funding of community care for the elderly together with the implications for the recipients. It provides specific advice for practitioners on the protection of assets from local authorities seeking to recover residential expenses. Incorporating changes to the law, the book examines the issues around entitlement to care and considers the impact of The Human Rights Act 1998.
