Summary

Ahead of the Budget, Chancellor Philip Hammond is coming under increasing pressure to raise more money to fund long-term social care. As local authorities struggle to meet these huge costs, reporter Tazeen Ahmad reports on why some people with dementia have to sell their family homes to pay for care while others gain access to NHS funds. The programme also goes undercover to reveal the advice financial experts give to potential sufferers, and asks whether the system providing care for thousands is really fit for purpose.
