Social care: Jeremy Hunt hails 'fully-funded solutions'
It is expected to include a £75,000 cap on the costs people pay for care and a rise in the threshold for means-tested support from £23,250 to £123,000.
Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said the "scandal" of many people selling homes to pay care bills must be tackled.
Labour said the country needed "a far bigger and bolder response".

He told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday the aim was "to be one of the first countries in the world which creates a system where people don't have to sell their own house".
