Care calculator launched by BBC

The BBC has launched an online guide to the care system for the over-65s.The "care calculator" covers both residential care and the support provided in people's own homes, for tasks such as washing and dressing. Users can submit their postcode and find out how much each service costs wherever they live in the UK. It also gives details about how the systems differ in the four nations - since devolution, the way services are organised has diverged.
