star this property answer text <p>Charging for Residential Accommodation Guidelines (CRAG) supports local authorities to interpret the National Assistance (Assessment of Resources) Regulations 1992. This guidance and the regulations will be repealed from April 2015 when new provisions under the Care Act 2014 come into force.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The new charging framework introduces minimal changes in order to respond to the call for continuity and to enable local authorities to focus on preparing for implementation of the reforms recommended by the independent Commission on Funding Reform that the Care Act will also introduce. From April 2016 this will see the introduction of a cap on care costs that will protect people from the risk of catastrophic costs and an extension to the point at which means tested support becomes available. As the published impact assessment shows, this means that up to 100,000 more people will be better off by 2024-25. We are in the process of updating the modelling and will publish a revised impact assessment shortly. In addition, from April 2015 we are introducing a universal deferred payment agreement scheme that means people should not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for care.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
