Why choose live-in care over residential care in Sawbridgeworth?
If your loved one has always been independent, but now requires care and companionship 24-hours a day, why not consider Elder live-in care in Sawbridgeworth? Private home care is an increasingly popular type of care that provides your loved one with more one-to-one support than they would receive in a care home, while allowing them to retain their independence and stay in their own home and communities.
Being admitted into a residential care home invariably means that your loved one would have to sacrifice most of their independence. Although many care homes try hard to treat all their residents as individuals, it is impossible for someone to have the same level of one-to-one as they would in their own home with a private carer dedicated to meeting their needs.
If your loved one lives alone in Sawbridgeworth and you are worried about their safety, putting them in a care home where there will be 24-hour supervision is no longer the only option. One of Elder’s live-in carers can move into your loved one’s home and keep them safe in their own environment, even if their care needs are quite complex, such as for those living with dementia.

Does Elder provide dementia care?
Elder’s has thousands of highly trained professionals who have experience in providing care for all sorts of conditions. We will match a live-in carer to your loved one based on the specific requirements of the care required for their condition, whether simply cooking and cleaning, or dealing with the many issues that may arise for someone living with dementia.
What tasks will a live-in carer perform?
Your live-in carer will do as much, or as little, as required. Their private carer will draw up a tailored plan guided by your specific requests. For example, if your loved one enjoys gardening, their carer will ensure that they have everything they need to be able to continue with the activity and only offer help where asked. If they find mowing the lawn difficult, yet enjoy tending to their flowers beds, their carer will only assist with the strenuous duties.
With the help of their live-in carer, there’s a lot that your loved one can do and see in Sawbridgeworth. Gibberd Garden is on their doorstep, which occupies 9 acres of a 14 acre site on the side of a small valley, sloping down to the Pincey Brook.
The garden is full of sculptures and decorative objects, including ceramic pots and items of architectural salvage. Your loved one’s live-in carer can assist them with admiring the many lawns, pools, streams and glades, or take them on a brookside journey through a wild garden and an arboretum leading to a moated castle with a drawbridge.
The Forge Museum is also in close proximity, where your loved one and their private carer can enjoy a tour around the attractive Grade II Listed Building. And if history isn’t their things, there’s tons of antique shops and tearooms for them to enjoy, while you can relax; rest assured that your relative is living life the best they can with an experienced and compassionate care provider with them at all times.
At Elder, we have thousands of care providers who go through lengthly interview processes to ensure that we provide your loved one with the level of care that they deserve. We therefore have hundreds of staff who have specifically trained in dealing with the extra demands that dementia and Alzheimer’s can bring. They understand the need to keep a watchful eye on your loved one, i.e. making sure that the cooker or the iron isn’t left on, or making sure that your relative does not wander off and become lost.
