Notes

These figures illustrate private contributions to care under two different cap models. Model 1 (blue) is based on a fixed monthly cap of 700 EUR for a maximum of three years. Model 2 (purple) is based on a relative cap of monthly contributions, presented for different levels of hypothetical cost. Under this model, care residents pay 95% of care fees in year 1, 75% in year 2, 55% in year 3, and 30% in year four and all subsequent years. See here for further details
