Frequently asked questions
Are residential homes the only care option available?
Residential homes are by no means the only elderly care option out there for when your loved one needs some extra support. Care homes may not suit everyone and it is definitely worth looking into alternatives to find something your loved one may be comfortable with.
Retirement villages, though at times can be rather pricey, offer support services onsite and often social activities where everyone living in the village can enjoy. Sheltered housing is another form of care which involves moving into a property with alarms and a warden on-site in case of emergency.
If your loved one doesn’t want to move out of the home they know and love, the best option for them could be live-in care. Not only is it more affordable than residential care but it involves very little upheaval to your relatives life. All they need is a spare room and the rest falls to the carer to adapt to their routine and support them exclusively where is needed, 24-hours a day.

What is home help?
Live-in care goes by many names and home help is one of them. But that’s exactly what our carers do, they help your elderly loved one at home. It could be that your relative just feels a bit lonely and concerned about being alone for safety reasons.
Whether they simply find themselves struggling to do housework or their needs have progressed to requiring more complex care, home help encourages people to stay in their own familiar environment.
Living in a care home can take some getting used to, especially if your loved one is fiercely independent and happy in their routine and the home they’ve spent time making their own. Home help can be a great alternative, and in a lot of cases, cheaper too.

How can I fund care for my loved one?
Planning for the long-term elderly care needs of a loved one is complex, so it pays to consider the matter as far in advance as possible. A local authority assessment is free of charge and available to anyone on request, and this could identify local sources of funding, depending upon your loved one’s financial circumstances.
NHS funding may be applicable if your loved one suffers from a long-term health condition, and grants and benefits may be available. If your loved one must pay for their own care, it’s best to seek professional advice from a financial advisor with CF8 or CeLTCI accreditations.
We have produced a range of guides covering the costs of care and how to fund it, and our advisors are on hand seven days a week to talk you through your options and point you in the right direction,
