Why choose live-in care in Flintshire?
If you have concerns that your elderly relative is struggling to cope at home but they don’t want to leave their familiar surroundings to move into residential care, then a live-in carer could be the perfect solution. Elder provides live-in carers for those who need support in Connah’s Quay, Mold, Flint, Talacre or one of the many villages in the region.
At Elder we understand that your loved one’s safety and comfort is paramount, and we are always happy to discuss our live-in care packages with you, so please don’t hesitate to call us for a chat on any day of the week between the hours of 8am and 8pm.
Why is live-in care the best alternative to a care home in Flintshire?
In a residential care home your loved one must whittle down a lifetime’s possessions to fit into one room. Care home staff work on a rota system and have to service the needs of every resident, so there might be times when your loved one is unattended to, despite the best efforts of staff.
When a live-in carer moves in with your loved one, there is no need to part with any possessions or downsize – your relative can continue to live in their own much-loved home, surrounded by a lifetime of memories and personal treasures, whilst you have the reassurance that they are safe and comfortable at all times.
An Elder live-in carer is there to facilitate every aspect of your loved one’s life, helping in any capacity from assistance with the housework and laundry, to gardening, shopping and preparing healthy and nutritious meals. Companion care to more complex personal care tasks such as help with bathing, dressing and toileting are all undertaken as necessary.
The carer will arrange medical appointments at the local surgery and assist them with any necessary visits to Holywell, Deeside or Mold Hospitals, dispensing medication as prescribed by doctors. They will also enable your loved one to attend their favourite social events, whether that is one of the regular coffee mornings at the Community Centre in Shotton, the Memory Café in Holywell, or the Flint Bridge club.
Why is Elder the best care solution in Flintshire?
Elder operates throughout the United Kingdom, providing dedicated live-in carers to provide support and assistance to the elderly in their own homes. We are passionate about supporting older people to lead independent and dignified lives, and we do whatever we can to assist them.
All of our carers understand the importance of fresh air, exercise and good nutrition, and will encourage your loved one to lead a rich and fulfilling life, providing help wherever it is needed, at any time of the day or night.
One of the often-overlooked benefits of live-in care is that your loved one won’t have to part with much-loved pets. Residential care homes are usually unable to accommodate pets, which can be a source of great anguish for many older people. An Elder carer will happily provide help with dog-walking and pet care if required.
What our customers say

How does Elder live-in care work?
Elder will create a unique care plan, tailored to an individual’s unique needs. Their one-to-one carer will do as much as required to keep your relative or spouse as safe and comfortable as possible.
For example, if your loved one enjoys cooking, their carer will take a backseat in this department and help with less favoured chores, such as ironing or cleaning. Should circumstances change, or a condition deteriorate, the care plan will be adapted accordingly.
Live-in home help can also provide assistance with personal care such as bathing and dressing. Our carers in Flintshire can help their care recipients with prescriptions, ensuring they’re ordered and collected from local services.
How much does live-in care in Flintshire cost?

All costs are completely inclusive, with no hidden fees. Although competitively priced, Elder also pay their carers above industry rate to ensure we work with the best and most experienced carers across the UK.
