Conservative Councillors in Hampshire are set to close five older people's homes as part of a package of cuts that will hit the elderly and most vulnerable hardest.
Charges for care services are to be hiked massively. If someone can't pay the full cost of care they will be left with just £1 per week to spend on 'luxuries' for every £5 they were previously allowed to keep.
And the Conservatives who run the County Council are also looking at changes that will prevent many people from qualifying for care at all! Under the plans, only those whose need has been classified as 'critical' will qualify for care.
