Updated Monday 2nd November 2009

As a nation, we're getting older - and that costs. We want to hear your opinions on how we pay for old age

Have your say: A person's mouth Copyrighted image Icon Copyright:

The Open University conducted a large-scale survey about the funding of care and accommodation for older people in the United Kingdom.

Over 1,000 people contributed to our survey - if you were one of them, thank you for participating.

Your contribution will help us to create a snapshot of information on current attitudes, opinions and experiences about how we support older people who need some assistance to live their lives to the full.

Your results are currently being analysed. We'll publish the results shortly.
