74%

57%

feel particularly uncomfortable at the thought of discussing funding and finances. 

82%

of 45-65+ year olds cared for a loved one themselves before arranging formal care.

58%

of families reported it took less than 12 months from noticing the initial signs, to needing formal care.

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.
