The Dilnot report, and the plight of Southern Cross, have brought the issue of elderly care into sharp focus.

Meanwhile, the government is toying with the issue of how to fund adult social care amid an ageing population.

Are you facing difficulties with funding for elderly relatives who need to go into a care home?

Are you worried that you will not be able to afford the fees for your own care, or confused about how much support you can get from councils or the NHS?

Thank you for your questions. Philip Spiers, of FirstStop Advice, will answer a selection of your questions and his answers will be published on Monday 11 July.
