In a city as vibrant and diverse as London, it is often easy to overlook the plights of the vast elderly community that exists across Britain's capital. Though dedicated care is available, many of the city's pensioners do not see this standard of assistance and average home care costs in London are skyrocketing.

This edition of London Undercover takes a look at the struggles that are faced by the city's older population, as well as the work being done currently to aid them with day-to-day life.
