Make later life better with live-in care

Getting older shouldn’t mean giving up the things that make us who we are. Live-in care ensures older people can keep the life and home they love, while getting the full-time care they need.

We understand that it’s important to feel in control in later life. No matter the level of care you need, you should still be able to choose the little things – such as what you eat for dinner or watch on TV, right through to the big stuff, like who you spend your time with, and where you call home.


As an award winning live-in care agency, we match older people throughout the UK with self-employed live-in carers. Each carer moves into the home to not only support day to day life, but provide true companionship and make the best days even better.

Arranging care in three steps

1. Tell us what you need

Speak to an Elder Care Advisor and complete our online care appraisal – this gives us a clear picture of the type of support you’re after.

2. Review your carer profiles

We’ll send you the profiles and videos of suitable carers. All you need to do is let us know who you’d like to choose as your live-in carer.

3.Your care begins

Your carer will arrive between 12-2pm on their first day. As they settle in, we’ll keep in touch to help things run smoothly and answer any questions.
