Consumer news and issues with Julian Worricker.

As we live longer but not necessarily more healthily in our twilight years, how can our care be paid for - whether it's help at home for essentials like washing and dressing, or in a residential care home? So how can a balance be struck so that the state pays for care when people can't fund it themselves, and the better off contribute some of the costs without being unfairly penalised? Each of the main political parties has begun to outline aspects of their policies in this area and on this edition of Call You and Yours, we hear from all three.

Guests:
Andy Burnham, Health Secretary
Andrew Lansley, Conservative Health spokesperson
Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat spokesman.
