What is live-in care?
Live-in care provides a great alternative to sending your loved one to a care home in Burton upon Trent. Leaving the home you love is hard. The memories. The family occassions. Your pet. With live-in home care, your family member is able to stay in the home they love, while receiving the support they need to tackle daily life.
Unlike other forms of at-home care, live-in care provides a long-term solution. An expertly-trained carer moves into a spare room, providing 24/7 care and support. It provides a better level of service than a care home while providing your loved one with the safety and reassurance of staying in the surroundings they’re used to.

Why is live-in care the better alternative to a care home in Burton upon Trent?
Private home care is becoming more popular by the day. It’s ideal for giving you the reassurance your loved one is being looked after with round-the-clock friendship and expert care. With live-in care, your loved one gets complete and personal attention.
A great advantage of live-in care is the care recipient can live in their home. Not a care home. This means they stay close to their networks in and around Burton on Trent, so important for retaining a healthy mind, a close social circle and routes to regular activities. By staying in their neighbourhood, those receiving live-in care can stay in touch with those they cherish most, whether friends, family or neighbours.
With home care, you don’t have the worries that go with your elderly relative moving into a care home. Change is more difficult to deal with as you get older. By staying at home, there’s minimal disruption to the routines that keep your loved one happy.
Live-in carers in Burton upon Trent are selected based on their expertise. Elder carers are able to provide a range of care, from everyday companionship care to complex and dementia care. We’ll only ever provide a carer who has the experience to take on the task at hand. Care at home doesn’t mean care is compromised.
Elder provides live-in carers throughout Staffordshire.
Why is Elder the best care solution in Burton upon Trent?
Whether you’re based in Burton, or somewhere else in Staffordshire, you can trust us. We’re the UK’s leading live-in care provider. We exist to bring better care to those who really need it. It’s all about making sure your loved one is able to stay in a familiar environment, with the support they need.
With Elder, your loved one is able to keep doing the things they love. Whether they’re green fingered and love spending time out in the garden, or love getting busy in the kitchen, Elder home carers will encourage and support them to do so safely.
Elder live-in carers in Burton on Trent are also able to cook the meals your elderly relative craves. Whether that’s a traditional sausage casserole, a hearty lasagne or a filling roast dinner, they can pick the meals they want, when they want them. There’s none of the canteen food you’d get a care home.
Home comforts also means creature comforts. If you or your elderly relatives have any furry friends, at-home carers are able to feed them and clean up after them - as required. All helping to stay positive and minimising the disruption to their lives.
How can live-in care keep your loved one as safe and comfortable as possible in Burton upon Trent?
Elderly people living alone are vulnerable in all sorts of ways. Clever con artists see them as easy targets, trying to persuade them to part with their savings.
Loneliness is also a particular problem for people in this age group, especially if they have any mobility problems which make it difficult for them to get out and about unaided.
An Elder carer is on hand throughout the day and night to provide assistance where needed. From help with sending an email to laundry and household cleaning duties, the carer is your relatives own personal facilitator. The carer aims to ensure that your loved one is safe, comfortable and looked after at all times.
Whether your elderly relative lives in Burton upon Trent itself, or Branston, Willington, Tutbury or any one of the surrounding villages, an Elder carer will enable them to continue to live a full and active life, enjoying their favourite pastimes.
How does Elder live-in care work?
At Elder, we take the time to discover your loved one’s personality, hobbies and interests so that we can arrange a live-in carer who is compatible right from the start. We find that this helps to form strong bonds of friendship very quickly, ensuring a positive outcome for both parties.
We establish the type of care that your loved one requires, from companion care all the way through to the more complex demands of those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. The care plan is entirely adaptable, to take into account your loved one’s changing needs over time.
The carer will arrange a medical appointment at Peel Croft or Bridge Surgery; collect prescriptions from Manor Pharmacy, and facilitate social events and outings that your loved one enjoys. They may like to take a gentle stroll around Barton Marina, feed the ducks at Branston Water Park, or perhaps take part in a gentle Prime Movers exercise class at Meadowside Leisure Centre.
Whatever your loved one’s favourite pastimes, the caregiver is on hand throughout every day and night, helping with a wide variety of tasks, ensuring that they eat nutritious meals, and keeping a watchful eye out for their safety and wellbeing.
