Ordinary people doing a truly extraordinary job.
Elder-approved carers are people who love what they do, inspired by their own stories.
Some of the self-employed carers working with us talk through why they got into the profession, and why it works for them. For many, becoming a care professional starts with a personal experience of supporting someone they love.
We leave nothing to chance. We treat your family’s care with the diligence we’d treat our own.
We take the standard of your carer seriously. From official checks and in-person assessments to the simple, most effective question ‘would I let this person look after my mum?’ With us, you know you’re getting a carer who’s right for the job.

They’re ordinary people doing an extraordinary job, united in their desire to make a difference.
The professionals we work with join the profession for a huge variety of reasons. But they’re all united by a common desire to do something that makes a difference. Read some of their stories below:
