Choosing a care home
At Elder, we understand that not everyone is in the right situation to receive live-in care on the Isle of Wight, perhaps there’s no space or maybe they require much more complex care.
No matter the reason, we’d still like to help and we know we’re in a good position to do so. We know what good care looks like, even outside of the home.
Your loved one has every right to be supported and cared for in the way they deserve, which is why we’ve found the best residential options in the area for you.

Frequently asked questions
Would a care home support those with dementia?
Some care homes are able to support people living with dementia, but many are not suitable due to environmental factors or a lack of suitably trained staff. Some care homes have specialist secure dementia units, but admission to a care home can often be very upsetting to an older person who is struggling to make sense of their environment.
If you are able to arrange live-in care for a family member who is living with dementia, they will not have to face the upheaval of moving away from their home environment into an unfamiliar place full of strangers. Having a dedicated one-to-one carer means that they will benefit from continuity of care and feel much more settled and content than if they have to accept care from various different people, as they would in residential care.
Remaining in their own home can be a great benefit to someone living with dementia.
Does live-in care support those with diabetes?
If your loved one is living with diabetes, choosing a provider such as Elder is a great way to ensure 24-hour care. Diabetes can be an exhausting condition, made much more difficult in later years, especially when someone is living alone.
Tasks such as cooking and cleaning can become too strenuous and, as a result, nutrition can slip and the condition can worsen. Remembering to take medicine and keeping doctors appointments can also become a challenge. But for those who prefer to remain living independently, in their own homes, home care can be the ideal solution.
A live-in carer from Elder has the knowledge, experience and training to support someone living with diabetes at home. From nutrition to medicine, as well as encouraging activities such as walking, live-in care can be the best option in the beneficial management of diabetes.
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.

How can I help my loved one to stay in their own home?
If you have an elderly relative who has reached the stage of needing 24-hour care, you may initially consider a care home. However, most elderly people want to remain in their own home for as long as they can, and live-in care from Elder can make this possible.
A live-in carer would move in with your loved one and provide all the support and care they need. In addition to providing assistance with any aspects of daily living or personal care tasks that the person finds difficult, a dedicated carer will also help with domestic tasks such as cleaning, cooking and shopping. Another advantage is that the carer will offer emotional support and company and help your loved one to maintain links with friends, family and neighbours.
