The Conservatives have completely failed to tackle the growing problems facing social care, leaving the system in crisis.
Under them, deep cuts have been made to local authority budgets that pay for adult social care. Experts have called the plans "deeply disappointing". The Tories' plans will lead to more people paying for care in their own home and will do nothing to help those struggling with catastrophic care costs.
Their latest shambolic announcement on a cap on social care costs, provides more questions than answers and gives no certainty that older people won't lose their homes.
