Frequently Asked Questions

Do care home residents eat together, or can they choose to eat in their rooms?

When it comes to dining, the wishes of care home residents are always taken into account and menus are planned to provide a pleasant mealtime experience. While residents can choose to eat in their rooms, they’re usually encouraged to dine with the other residents in order to benefit from social interaction.

However, some older people may find the atmosphere and approach of communal dining overwhelming, which is one reason why you might consider live-in care. Your loved one will be encouraged to eat tasty and healthy meals prepared by their carer in a relaxed atmosphere.

If you feel your loved one would benefit from the kind of person-centred approach that only comes with live-in care, contact us today to discuss your loved one’s requirements.

Live-in Care or Nursing Homes: What’s the difference?

If you choose nursing care for your loved one, they will move into a residential home where 24-hour care will be available to deal with complex needs, often with a number of people in a similar situation. Nurses are on hand at all times but with many residents to consider, their services may be stretched thin.

In contrast, live-in care means that your relative doesn’t have to leave their own home. Instead, a live-in carer can move in with your relative and cater for their individual needs on a one to one basis.

Live-in care can be adapted to meet the level of support required by your loved one, whether they happen to be struggling to cope on their own, wants or needs companionship or has more complex. In all cases, live-in care can be a less stressful option than facing the upheaval of a move into residential care without compromising on the quality of care.

Dementia Live-in Care: What is it?

For people living with dementia, live-in care means that they wouldn’t have to face the increased anxiety and confusion that moving into a care home would involve. Elder has specially trained staff who can provide dementia care in your loved one’s own home so you will know they are safe and looked after 24 hours a day.

Dementia is a progressive disease, and your loved one’s condition may change over time. Both their physical and mental abilities may decline, so Elder’s carers will review their individual care plan regularly and ensure that you know about any changes whenever necessary.

If you would like to find out more about how Elder can help you to help a loved one who is living with dementia, contact our friendly care advisors for more information any day between 8am and 8pm.

How do Live-in Care Fees Work?

Many people assume that paying live-in care fees involves the same choices as those involved in meeting the costs of a residential care home. However, because your loved one is able to stay in their home, there are some extra funding options when it comes to live-in care.

When people move into care homes, there is a chance they may be entitled to government benefits or local authority help alongside their pension. However, they may need to sell their house.

With live-in care, the funding possibilities above still apply, but there are also some other options. For example, equity release may be something to look into for your loved one. Recently approved retirement interest-only mortgages may provide another solution. Someone needing live-in care would also be likely to be granted the higher rate of Attendance Allowance.
