Once a nurse, 91-year-old Margaret Webb now needs help herself. She's one of an ever growing number of people who get care at home.
She has breathing problems and other medical difficulties and needs help getting up, at lunchtime and to go to bed.
Somerset County Council has just shaved 15 minutes off her hour long morning visit and she lost her tea time visit altogether.
Somerset Care is a not for profit social enterprise that runs 27 care homes in Somerset. It also provides care for people like Mrs Webb.
They say the current 2% council tax charge isn't enough for the county council to pay them properly.
The announcement allowing councils to raise extra money now - but less later - won't solve the underfunding problem.
Those with assets less than £23,250 are paid for by the County Council.
The authority told ITV West Country it is committed to helping people remain independent, but more people need support and they have to prioritise where they spend the money the government allows them to raise.
