Choosing a care home
Live-in care in Coventry isn’t for everyone. Your loved one may not live in a house that has an extra room to accomodate a home carer, or perhaps the idea of it just doesn’t quite take their fancy.
Even so, Elder would still like to help you make the ideal later life care choice for your loved one, who deserves the kind of care that is not only suitable, but something they would choose themselves.
That’s why we’ve summed up our top ten care home picks in Coventry to ensure that not only do you make the right choice for your family, but you don’t get flustered trying to piece it all together either.

Frequently asked questions
Can my loved one still get attendance allowance if they live in a care home?
Attendance Allowance is a government-funded benefit payable to elderly people with a disability so severe that they need assistance with daily chores. Home care assistance doesn’t necessarily need to be in place in order to claim it.
Your loved one will continue to receive Attendance Allowance for the first four weeks of residential care, if they qualify for the benefit. After the initial four-week period, they may still qualify for the benefit, provided that they are self-funding their place in the care home.
Where your loved one’s local Trust is paying for, or contributing towards, their care home fees, then Attendance Allowance is not normally payable.
Attendance Allowance may be payable to your loved one after their 12th week of care, where their Trust has contributed to the first 12 weeks, whilst your loved one is waiting for their property to be sold.

Does live-in care support those with osteoporosis?
Live-in care can offer excellent care to those with osteoporosis, not least because a dedicated live-in carer will get to know your loved one’s needs and capabilities very thoroughly. They will be able to help and encourage the care recipient to carry out any recommended exercises and will ensure that they receive all the help they need with day-to-day tasks.
Having someone around whenever they are needed twenty-four hours a day also means that falls are much less likely, and this is particularly important for anyone with osteoporosis.
With a dedicated live-in carer to accompany them, your relative will be able to get out and about safely to the limits of their ability, and you will have the peace of mind of knowing that they are not alone and at risk.
What services do Elder provide?
Elder can provide the one-to-one care your elderly relative needs in the home environment they are used to. One of our trained and experienced caregivers can move into your loved one’s home and provide support and care twenty-four hours a day so that they can remain comfortably and safely at home.
In addition to providing the quality healthcare you would find in a care home, Elder’s carers will also help with many different aspects of your relative’s life. This can include escorting or driving them out and about to appointments or social activities, caring for pets and helping with general housekeeping tasks.
Unless your relative prefers to cook for themselves, our carers will also provide regular meals, so you can be sure your family member is getting the nutrition they need.

What kind of care do nursing homes provide?
Nursing homes provide a comprehensive package of care for elderly residents. This may include personal care such as help with bathing and eating, social care, companionship and even medical care for those who need help and support 24 hours a day.
If your loved one requires a high level of care but is unwilling to enter a nursing home, live-in care can provide a viable alternative that allows them to stay in their own home, surrounded by familiar possessions and enjoying the support of friends and family.
Private care is often more cost-effective than a nursing home and it provides bespoke care that is personally adapted to your loved one’s specific needs.
