Not sure if this is the correct place - not even sure if this new ruling will be challenged and not seen it reported anywhere else apart from Daily Telegraph!

This says that a judge ruled that a person over the age of 60 years doesn't necessarily have to be resident in their parents home for it to be disregarded for care fees - they just have to think of it as their 'home'

No doubt it will be challenged or referred to a higher court, but it's still interesting!
