We’re committed to doing right by you

We believe later life should be lived well. Older people should get the support they need without giving up their dignity. Their independence should be protected, and they should have someone they can trust to talk to, and provide companionship. 

By joining our network of 4000+ incredible carers, you can help us make this happen. 

And, when you help vulnerable older people and their families to get the most out of life, it’s only right we help you to do the same. So, as an Elder-approved self-employed carer you can earn a competitive rate and bonuses, access exclusive third-party rewards, and get specialist support every step of the way from a dedicated team.
