I've never heard of this in the UK. What IS common however, especially in England, is old people being forced to sell their house to pay to go into a nursing home (which is not free to you if you can afford it, although it may be subsidised - I don't remember the details to be honest although I do remember that it is a lot better in Scotland where it might be free for everyone)
