Elder can help your elderly loved one to remain in their familiar surroundings on the Isle of Man, even when they require an increasing amount of help and assistance, by providing a highly trained live-in carer.

To find out how an Elder caregiver could provide a viable alternative to moving into a care home, please contact us for a no-obligation chat about our services.

Why is live-in care the better alternative to a care home on the Isle of Man?

Moving house at any time of life is an upheaval, but for an elderly person moving into residential accommodation, it can be especially difficult. Space is at a premium in care homes, and your loved one will need to go through the possessions built up over a lifetime, choosing those important pieces to take with them.

When you choose a live-in carer from Elder to move in with your loved one, there is no need to make the heartbreaking decision to part with treasured possessions and mementos. Instead, your elderly relative can remain in their own familiar surroundings, with friends and neighbours close at hand.

Many of Elder’s care recipients appreciate being able to enjoy the pleasures of their own well-tended gardens, which a carer can provide assistance with. Stimulating outings such as the popular island Walk and Talk sessions are ideal for active older walkers, whilst less mobile care recipients will enjoy indoor bowling at Douglas, or perhaps one of the chair-based exercise sessions held regularly at Ramsey, Onchan, Castletown, Peel and Port Erin.

What our customers say

How does 24-hour care work on the Isle of Man?

Elder can supply a live-in 24/7 carer in Ramsey, Douglas, Castletown, Peel, or any of the villages on the island, to provide round-the-clock assistance to your elderly loved one.

The carer can provide help and assistance with a wide range of tasks, depending on your loved one’s particular requirements. Some of our clients are keen for their elderly relatives to have a companion on hand to keep loneliness and boredom at bay and to provide assistance in the event of an emergency. Other clients have relatives with more complex needs, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, for example, and in these instances, the carer can provide personal care such as assistance with getting up, bathing, dressing, and toileting.

The carer is an extra pair of hands and a constant companion, who is ready, willing and able to provide help wherever it is needed, from assistance with the housework and gardening to facilitating outings and shopping trips. Elder carers will ensure that your loved one eats tasty and nutritious meals every day, and they will arrange medical appointments and dispense medication when it is due.

What if my loved one doesn’t like their carer?

At Elder, we understand the importance of a great relationship between care recipient and carer, which is why we go to great lengths to ensure a good match. In the unlikely event that your loved one is not completely happy with his or her carer, Elder will ensure a suitable replacement is found.

How much live-in care in the Isle of Man cost?

Often the most daunting thought that comes with the realisation that a loved one needs care is how it’s going to be paid for. Live-in care is competitively priced, but rest assured, our services are completely inclusive and actually cost 30% less than that of a care home.

A live-in carer costs £770 all in. We source the best, most highly trained professionals in this field and pay them above the standard rate to ensure quality.

Why choose Elder?

Our services are unique because we really take the time and effort to place caregivers with recipients who we think will get along. We do this by matching interests, hobbies and likes and dislikes. Everyone benefits from a great professional and personal relationship, and we know the family of our customers feel far more at ease with the situation when they like and trust the carer.

Not only will you have the help and assistance from your loved one’s caregiver but Elder is a fully managed service, so our care support team are on hand to advise you every day from 8 am to 8 pm.
