Your live-in care partner of choice
We work in partnership with health and social care providers, later life planning services, and senior product and service companies to build towards a more integrated care journey for individuals and their families.
As an introductory live-in care agency, we specialise in matching those in need of support to dedicated live-in care professionals:
Our person-centred service is built entirely around the needs and choices of the customer – providing the support they need, without sacrificing their way of life.
Rapidly deployable service
We’re able to have carers in place within as little as 48 hours of the initial call, anywhere the UK – even where traditional capacity shortfalls are most acute.
High-quality, affordable care
Starting at a standard package of £1095 per week, live-in care with Elder is an affordable yet quality care option for those seeking full-time support at home.
A tech-enabled platform delivering personalised care
CareOS is comprised of three core technologies that deliver a consistent yet tailored experience for carers, customers and service users.
Encourages independence by enabling customers to take control of their care. Families can accept carer matches, update their care needs and manage their invoices – ideal for direct payments holders.
Our proprietary matching technology sensitively pairs live-in carers to customers, based on their individual needs and preferences, so they can stay close to the things, routines and people they love.
Our unique logistics and care planning platform, Mission Control, enables us to provide a seamless end-to-end experience for both carers and customers, so we can manage care needs in real-time.
A dedicated support team providing a human touch
Our internal clinical team, with over 60 years of combined experience in the NHS, ensures rigorous standards and are continually building upon an outstanding record of quality assurance.
Our dedicated Care Advisors and Family Support Specialists guide families through every step of their care journey, from discussing funding to getting the house ready for a live-in carer.

How we will support your organisation
We work together with domiciliary care providers, residential & nursing homes, care brokerages, and private hospitals as a part of the Elder Partner Referral Network.
