Do you need help funding long term care? For help and advice, call 03700 100 444 from 1pm to 3.30pm on Wednesday or e-mail moneybox@bbc.co.uk

If you, a relative or friend can no longer manage alone, how do you find out about getting help with daily activities, medical needs or adapting a home to make life easier?

What will a care assessment involve and can you challenge a decision if you believe it is wrong?

If the time has come to move into a residential home, how do you choose one and what will it cost?

Who will pay for care, the Local Authority, the NHS or you?

Can welfare benefits help and what are the pros and cons of the financial products on offer?

Whatever your question, presenter Paul Lewis will be joined by:

Pat Lacroix, Advisor, Independent Age.
Garry Macdonald, Advisor, Independent Age Scotland.

Lisa Morgan, Partner and Nursing Care Specialist, Hugh James.

Brian Tabor, Chartered Financial Planner, Carematters.
