Would you or a loved one wait until you’re critically ill to seek home care?

Unfortunately recent research suggests this is the case for most people, and at Elder we’ve seen this for ourselves too. A lot of families come to us once mum or dad’s needs have reached a crisis point. It’s often a hugely emotional time with lots of unanswered questions.  

We’re on a mission to change this by providing resources that can help prevent care from becoming a big scary unknown. We believe it’s never too soon to start speaking about care, and it’s why we’ve created our free ‘Noticed a change’ pack, brimming with expert advice and real life stories.

What our customers in Exeter say

"We have been so impressed with all aspects of Elder. We've had four carers so far who have all been kind, caring, and compassionate. All of them have gone above and beyond. I say that Elder have revolutionised my mum's life. She is now happy, has regained her appetite, and has increased her mobility. "

"I found Elder excellent from my first phone call to the point that the carer arrived. Everybody I spoke to was helpful and friendly, making the process easy and pleasant. I want to thank them all."
