Ceredigion, is a beautiful part of the country for the elderly to reside. If you have an elderly loved one living in this area who is in need of elderly care, then a live-in care package from Elder might be the ideal solution.
We have dedicated carers working in Ceredigion, Aberystwyth, Aberaeron, New Quay and right across the region, so wherever your loved one lives, we can provide a bespoke care package to meet their individual needs.
With a live-in care package, a caregiver moves in with your elderly relative and offers them the round the clock companionship and support that they need to remain in their own home and enjoy an independent lifestyle. Many elderly people are reluctant to move into residential care, as it would mean them giving up their treasured belongings and leaving their family home, community, friends, and neighbours.
Live-in care also enables your loved one to have pets that they would have to be separated from were they to be relocated to a care home. There are many well-known health advantages associated with pet ownership, it combats stress and is great for those with high blood pressure. Our carers will ensure that well-loved animals are taken care of too.
With care at home, your loved one is given all the help they need to remain in their own home, while enjoying the companionship and support of a dedicated, one to one carer. Your loved one’s carer will be able to lend a hand with a range of tasks, but will only ever do as little or as much as your relative requests.
Our carers can assist with household tasks such as shopping, preparing nutritious meals and cleaning or gardening, as well as with intimate personal care tasks, such as getting to the toilet, bathing and getting dressed.
We always try to match your loved one with a carer who shares at least some of their hobbies and interests, so carers might organise days out they can enjoy together, perhaps taking in Ceredigion Castle, a stroll along Poppit Sands beach or an evening at the Small World Theatre. They may also take them shopping to help keep them active, with Ceredigion Guildhall Market a popular choice.
If they are insured to drive your relative’s car, caregivers might also be able to run them to appointments at nearby hospitals such as the Bronglais or Ceredigion and District Hospitals.

Dr Martin Hyde is Associate Professor of Gerontology at the Centre for Innovative Ageing at Swansea University and Deputy Editor of the Ageing and Society Journal. His research on ageing and retirement seeks to explore the work life course, the ways in which people leave work, and the impact that has on their health and wellbeing after they’ve left. We talked to him about how the idea of retirement is changing, the impact of an ageing workforce and whether it is even healthy to retire at all.

With live-in care, your loved one retains full control over those everyday decisions so often denied to those who live in a residential home. Trivial as it may sound, being able to decide what and where they eat, when they go to bed and get up in the morning and even when they go to the bathroom means that your loved one keeps their independence and freedom for as long as possible.
You may be intrigued to learn that live-in care in Ceredigion is actually up to 30% cheaper than that of a residential home, and you can save even more if it is a couple that both require in-home care.
The costs are completely inclusive, and at £770 per week, we make sure you are not hit with any hidden fees. Though reasonably priced, we still make sure that we can provide you with the best carers in the industry and to guarantee this; we pay them over the standard rate.
We are enthusiastic about providing the highest standards of one-to-one elderly care. We take the time to match the interests of the care recipient to the caregiver, ensuring plenty of common ground to cultivate a comfortable and agreeable working relationship. As a testament to this, often our carers go on to form strong bonds of friendship with their care recipients and family alike.
Along for the ride is our care support team, who entirely manage the live-in services. They are on hand seven days a week to offer any advice or information you may need.
