My paternal grandparents had to have their house sold when they needed full time care. Both had Alzheimers.

Country house in Worplesdon paid for my grandmother to live in a care home for over ten years. When she finally passed on there was nothing of the Estate left for my father and his siblings.

The bit that irritated us was that there were other people in the care home with the same illness that had the entirety of their treatment paid for by the NHS, whereas my grandmother's assets were liquidated in order for her to have the care because she had "savings and assets". Bugger the fact that the savings and assets were the accumulation of years of hard work, building up a business, employing up to 20 other people, never having holidays and working well into their seventies.

Looking at it - what is the incentive to work hard and save if you know that the Government will take it all from you when you die?
