From the 8th April 2019, people living in Wales will have to pay the full cost of their own residential care only if they have assets of more than £50,000.
Welsh ministers increased the capital limit by £10,000 only 12 months after it rose from £30,000 to £40,000.
The capital limit determines whether a person pays their entire care costs or whether they receive financial support towards the cost from their local authority.
The limit applicable in non-residential care cases is to remain at £24,000. While the Maximum Weekly Charge for those in need of non-residential care is to increase from £80 to £90 per week.
The capital threshold in England is £23,250.
