Free Telecare for over 85s
Over 85s living alone in Cheshire East will get free telecare support while many other older people may find their charges for social care packages reduced.
The review of charges and services was carried out following a public consultation exercise earlier this year and the recommendations were approved by Cabinet this week.
Cheshire East Council plans to implement the changes later this year.
