The report finds that the current system for assessing whether a person is eligible for publicly funded social care is flawed. The following changes should be made immediately: Everyone should have an assessment of their support needs. This should include information and advice to help them make the right choices. Government should decide on new eligibility criteria which relate to the urgency of a person's situation. Government should ensure there is a consistent approach across the country.
