Rutland is the smallest county in England, boasting many attractive villages where the elderly can peacefully reside. If your loved one has previously been independent, but you feel the time has come when they need someone around twenty-four hours a day, why not consider private live-in care? They’ll remain as independent as they can while receiving the best one-to-one care available.
How can live-in care help my loved one in Rutland?
Elder’s live-in carers are available to move in with your loved one and look after their needs day and night. Whether they live in Uppingham, Oakham or one of the smaller villages like Egleton, our carers will help your loved one to get out and about in the local area to enjoy visits to their favourite destinations and attractions. Keen gardeners can enjoy a visit to Barnsdale, the inspirational garden originally created for Gardener’s World by Geoff Hamilton.
Grimsthorpe Castle Park and Gardens near Bourne also makes for a great day out elderly people and there are level woodland walks and wheelchair access to much of the grounds for those with mobility issues. After spending time on the grounds your loved one can enjoy refreshments in the Old Coach House tea room.
Those interested in history may like their carer to accompany them to the Rutland County Museum & Visitor Centre in Oakham, where there are a range of exciting exhibitions to be seen.
What do live-in carers do in the home?
Whatever needs your loved one has, you can rest assured that they will be taken care of and addressed in their individual care plan. They may need assistance with all aspects of daily life. This can range from personal care to laundry and meal preparation, as well as providing companionship to your loved one. Elder carers will keep a watchful eye on your loved one to make sure they’re safe. Which is especially important if your loved one lives with dementia and are a little more vulnerable.
If your parent would like support to continue a hobby they enjoy, or would like to be able to get out into the community to attend groups such as the Age UK lunch club in Uppingham, the carer will help with this. If a prescription needs to be collected from the Rutland Late Night Pharmacy in Oakham, their private carer can also ensure this is taken care of.

Why should I choose Elder?
With Elder, you can be confident that your loved one will receive the highest standard of care from a carer who has been carefully selected according to similar interests, to encourage the formation of a friendship.
Elder’s carers are trained to care for people with a range of different conditions, and will be able to keep you informed of any changes in your loved one’s wellbeing or any developing needs. Because they are directly employed by Elder, you will not have to worry about holiday cover or what will happen if a carer becomes ill. A suitable, temporary replacement will be found by our team.
How much live-in care in Rutland cost?
A lot of people fail to consider private care because they think it will be excessively more expensive than care home prices but this isn’t the case.
Despite being competitively priced, we ensure the highest quality by paying our carers over the standard rate.
However, live-in care costs can still be up to 30% cheaper than care homes. There are no extra costs involved, just a flat rate of £895 per week.
Why choose Elder?
Elderly care can be so much more than becoming resigned to a care home; it can be a transition into a new phase of life. Your loved one is entitled to a life which is as free and fulfilling as they want it to be, all the while ensuring safety and instilling confidence into those who now could benefit from it. Here at Elder, it is our passion to help you find that.
We take the time to match the interests of the care recipient to the caregiver, ensuring plenty of common ground to foster a comfortable and friendly working relationship. In fact, many of our carers go on to form strong bonds of friendship with their care recipients and their family members.
As a fully managed service, Elder’s care support team will be with you every step of the way to provide any information or support you require.
Contact us now, and one of our friendly care advisors will be happy to discuss your situation with no obligation.
