Live-in Care in Cardiff
Or call 0333 241 3141
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.
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.
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
“It is reassuring to know that my father is being cared for by someone who understands his needs and his dementia symptoms.”
Elder provide live-in carers throughout Glamorgan. If your loved one has reached the stage where they require long-term 24/7 care and support, but they don’t want to leave their own home, Elder live-in care provides the care home alternative you’re looking for.
Now that the live-in care in Wales has become a viable alternative to residential care homes, there are more opportunities than ever to spend quality time with your elderly parents. If you are visiting Ruthin with your elderly loved ones, there are plenty of options for things you can do together.
It's understandable to question the reasoning behind a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or dementia because of the degenerative nature of the conditions and the limited availability of effective medical treatment available. While this may appear a potentially sound argument at first glance, in practice it could be catastrophic for the individual involved and their family when dealing with these cognitive challenges.
The costs of home care to an individual can vary widely and are dependent on many different factors. These include the type of care needed, how many hours a week you need a caregiver to be present, your own financial situation, where in the UK you live and whether you are eligible for any assistance with your care fees.
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.
Elder’s live-in care service costs a flat rate of £770 per week. This is up to 30% less than a care home, and even more if care is required for couples.
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.
We are passionate 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 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 your require.
