Home care: Frequently asked questions

At Elder we speak with thousands of people up and down the UK each week to discuss the various questions and queries that they have around live-in home care.

We find that although families are often sold on the very basic idea of elderly care in the home – understanding the indepedence it brings to those in later life – it’s the more practical

Everyone’s individual situation is different which is why we undertake a comprehensive free care assessment for those who are considering home care as a care option for themselves or their loved ones.

There are, however, certain questions which come up time and time again which is why we’ve created this frequently asked questions about home care page in order to give you the information you need to assess your options.

Elder’s carers can help with a variety of day-to-day domestic tasks, like errands, cleaning, as well as personal care and assisting with medication.

Maintaining a sustained quality of life for the care recipient is key, which is why we meticulously match them with a care professional based on skill, requirement and common interests. This way, once the carer moves into the recipient’s home, they have a mutual interest which can help them build strong and lasting relationships, developing into genuine companionship.

Making the decision to find care for yourself or a loved can be challenging, which is why it’s important to have all the information you need to make an informed decision – something that’s especially important for families looking for specialist dementia care.

Our care support advisors are available seven days a week on the number at the top of this page. So, if there are any questions you have that you would like to discuss, please call now for a complimentary care assessment.
