London Live News investigates a new approach to home care

Founder of HomeTouch, Dr Jamie Wilson, speaks to Claudia-Liza Armah about a new approach to home care. With the ageing population and average life expectancy on the rise, adequate access to care is becoming a pressing problem in the UK. Councils are scaling back their care services as budgets are squeezed, and smaller and more expensive housing means no room for mum and dad. How Britain faces this problem may well define the next thirty years, so is there a solution? Jamie thinks there is.
