“Live-in care is the perfect solution for those who want consistent, quality care support. You get 24/7 care, often costing less than somebody coming round to look after your relative a couple of times a day.” - Joe, Nottingham
Security & independence for your loved one
Peace of mind for you
97% of people don't want to go into a care home, but many of them aren't aware there is an alternative.
Live-in care is that alternative, providing all of the benefits of residential care with few of the downsides. Whilst remaining in their own home, your relative not only benefits from being in their own community with their friends, but will receive one-to-one care and companionship, 24/7.
If you are unsure what sort of care you might need, or would like to learn more about live-in care, why not call one of our advisors or send us a message.
Paying for care is simpler than you might think
Elder costs less and pays your carer more than other providers, and is often far less expensive than a care home.

“We love that we can still spend time together in the family home” ― Tom, Harrogate
We look after your carer, so they can look after your loved one and keep your family where they belong - in the place they recognise.
“My mother has never wanted to go into a care home. She’s a very independent woman and thanks to Elder she is able to have her life the way she wants.”
“Live-in care has worked better than I could have hoped for. I never thought Mum would be able to stay at home with her stage of dementia”
“Dad’s friends come round a few times a week to talk about the football, and the carer joins in. Shame she’s a Liverpool fan!”
“Elder makes doing the right thing simple and stress free” ― James, Truro
Our highly qualified carers are carefully matched to suit your relative’s needs
The upheaval of having to move to a care home would mean giving up not just independence, but also their choice of entertainment options, animal companions, social community, and even culinary preferences. With a live-in carer, this doesn’t need to be the case.
We are incredibly thorough in selecting our carers, doing full background checks and putting them through a rigorous interview process. Only 4% of applicants end up getting a job with Elder.
It is important that our carers are qualified to deal with a range of conditions from frailty to dementia. However they also need to have softer skills such as empathy and compassion. We also understand how important it is that our carers can cook the food that your relative will love.
I've noticed that a firm favourite staple is Sunday roast, which I make every week without a fail.
My client's favourite meal is Shepherd's pie, and I love to make it because it reminds me of my own childhood.
I love making soup and my clients love soup. My favourite is pure and simple: home made, from scratch, creamy tomato.
It is the matching process, that sets us apart. Each time we find care for somebody, we scour our pool of hundreds of carers to ensure that we can find an individual who not only has the required skills, but also will be a good personality match. It is because we do this that so many customers stay with us for years.
For example, we know that ensuring that our carers can cook the food that your relative is used to and enjoys, is a critical part of making sure the match works. Your live-in carer becomes part of the family, ensuring safety, comfort and enrichment of your loved one at all times.
