For anyone who has come to the stage in their life when they need long-term care, but is reluctant to move away from their own home, Elder’s live-in care service can offer the support they need. If your loved one is in this position, why not explore how live-in care could be the ideal alternative to a care home.
What are the advantages of live-in care compared to a care home in Greenwich?
Our customers are anxious that their loved ones are kept safe and given the opportunity to live as independently as they can while being cared for 24/7.
A care home would have difficulty in providing the one to one care that Elder’s carers can give your loved one. Everything is tailored to their specific needs and preferences, and they will have a companion around to share experiences with all day, every day.
To avoid the worry and upheaval that an older person would have to go through if they moved away from their home and community, live-in care may be the ideal solution. A live-in carer will also be able to support them to remain in contact with the people who are important to them, and to continue enjoying their hobbies and activities.
What makes Elder the preferred care solution in Greenwich?
Because Elder’s care is specially tailored to the way your loved one wants to live, the specific care they need will be provided, but our carers will not interfere with the activities they want to carry out independently.
Your loved one is likely to remain much more physically active in their own home than if they go into residential care. Our carers will support them to enjoy exercise where they can so that their mobility is maintained at the highest possible level. If they have pets, our carers will help with looking after these too.
With a highly trained, professional live-in carer you can be sure that all your loved one’s needs will be met and they will benefit from receiving whatever level of care they need.
We provide live-in carers throughout Greenwich and neighbouring boroughs, such as Lewisham, Woolwich and West Ham.
How can care from Elder enhance your loved one’s daily life?
This Royal Borough has so much to offer and is a beautiful location for elderly people to live. There are many attractive places to visit nearby. Our carers will support your loved one to do the things they enjoy in their local area. This might be accompanying them shopping in Greenwich Market and perhaps stopping for a cup of tea at the Red Door community café or taking a trip to see the historic Cutty Sark.
If your loved one is living with dementia, they may like to join the Singing for Fun choir that is run by Age UK Bromley and Greenwich. Carers are welcome here along with the people they are looking after.
With a private live-in carer to keep your loved one safe, they will be able to live their lives to the full and enjoy all that the borough has to offer.

What our customers say
“Judith is absolutely lovely and you could see the fantastic relationship she has with my mum. My mum’s smile nearly lit up the whole house when Judith arrived.”
What will a live-in carer do for my elderly relative?
Each of Elder’s care recipients has an individual care plan created for them, so their carer will do whatever is needed to keep your loved one safe and meet all their needs. They will help with any areas of personal care that the elderly person cannot manage, so they may help them to wash, dress and use the toilet, along with whatever else is needed on a daily basis.
In addition to personal care, the carer will provide whatever domestic support is needed. This could involve cleaning, laundry or shopping. They will provide regular, nutritious meals for the care recipient unless they prefer to cook for themselves.
If your loved one needs prescriptions ordered or collected from a local surgery, such as the Burney Street Practice, this will be part of the carer’s duties too.
Companionship is another valuable service that live-in care provides. Many elderly people who live alone do become lonely and sometimes feel anxious and insecure, especially at night. Knowing there is always someone around to help when they are needed can give them the confidence to enjoy life in their community and can also give you the peace of mind of knowing they are safe and well cared for.
Any changes in your loved one’s circumstances or their health status will be monitored, and the care plan will be updated as necessary, to reflect any changes in the care that is needed.
What is the cost of live-in care in Greenwich?
The live-in care service from Elder costs £895 per week, which is as much as thirty percent less than a care home would cost. This is very competitive and is even more significant value for a couple who need live-in care.
Our carers are paid over the industry rate so that we can recruit excellent, well-experienced carers in all areas of the UK.
What makes Elder the live-in care service of choice?
We have a passionate commitment to supplying the best possible standard of live-in care for elderly people.
Every care recipient will have their interests carefully matched with the carer so that there is common ground between them and they will be able to build up a healthy relationship based on friendship and mutual trust.
Elder’s fully managed service means that our support team is available to provide all the support and information you may need.
If you would like to explore how we could support your loved one in their own home, call and chat to our care advisors, who can provide any information you need.
