We are all becoming 'carers'. According to government figures, some 5.8 million people in the UK have caring and support responsibilities, while 1.4 million people are caring for someone 24 hours a day. Increasingly parents are finding that no sooner have their children left home and they are free of their caring responsibilities, than their ageing parent needs help.

This 'sandwich generation' is heading for a pensions nightmare.
