What is live-in care?
At Elder, we provide compassionate and affordable live-in care for the elderly, in and around Mayfair, helping members of the older generation to live a happy and comfortable life in the comfort of their own homes.
Elder provides trained caregivers who offer 24/7 live-in care assistance for the elderly in their own homes, or in your home if your relative has moved in with you. Such support provides a practical alternative to residential care and avoids the stress and upheaval that a move can cause.
There is no need for your loved one to go through much-loved possessions, choosing what to keep and what to part with, as they would likely have to do if they moved into a residential care home. Thanks to our elderly care-at-home packages, your loved one can retain their much-loved treasures and mementoes.

Who can benefit from a live-in carer in Mayfair?
Elder supply compassionate and capable caregivers to any elderly person in need of an extra pair of hands around the home. Some of our care recipients require a short period of assistance, perhaps after surgery, for example, providing help with cleaning, shopping, cooking and medication.
In some cases, where an elderly loved one resides at home with you, a live-in carer provides companion care throughout the day while you are at work. Some families use our services when they go on holiday, to provide a short period of respite care without interrupting the daily routine.
In the majority of cases, the caregiver moves into your loved one’s home on a permanent basis, offering help and support day and night, as required.
What are the benefits of care in the home?
Your loved one may have spent many happy years living an independent life in their own home. They will have built up friendships with neighbours and other people in and around Mayfair and may be reluctant to move into residential care.
Elderly people tend to be happier remaining in their own home as they are able to continue with the daily activities that they have performed all of their life i.e. gardening. Live-in carers can also take over pet duties and will happily feed your loved one’s animals or walk their beloved dog. Such benefits are not available in a care home where space is limited and pets are generally not allowed.
By employing a caregiver to move into their home, you will find that your loved one can continue with their lifestyle, which has a profound impact on their wellbeing. Being among their own much-loved possessions and in familiar surroundings allows them to maintain a level of independent living, but with the knowledge that a 24-hour live-in carer is on hand to provide help wherever and whenever it’s needed.

What does a live-in carer do?
At Elder, we carefully match the caregiver to the care recipient, to encourage the formation of a strong friendship. We take into account your loved one’s personality, hobbies and interests, and we do our very best to pair them with a carer who will believe they will forge a bond with.
The carer will do as much, or as little, as required by you or your loved one, so they can be as involved as they like in everyday duties. This could be anything from support with housework, shopping, outings and meal preparation, through to personal care such as help with bathing and dressing.
Your live-in carer will make sure that all prescriptions are ordered and collected, and that your loved one takes their medications as directed by their medical advisers. They will arrange medical appointments, and accompany your relative on trips or visits anywhere at anytime.
Mayfair is also home to London’s most charming parks and gardens, which your loved one can enjoy with their live-in carer. You can therefore rest assured that they’re content, while you’re relaxing in the knowledge that your loved one is in the best hands and keeping active with the help of their one-to-one carer.
If your loved one requires dementia care, we have carers who specialise in this type of care, who are familiar with dealing with the personality attributes associated with the condition. At Elder, we only hire highly trained staff and ensure that those we assign to your loved one are capable of handling any situations that may arise. For example, is your loved one lives with Alzheimer’s, we will ensure that we assign a carer with experience in dealing with these situations.
Knowing that your loved one is safe, secure, well-nourished and in good hands provides peace of mind for the whole family. This means that you can relax and enjoy their company, without worrying about cooking for them or cleaning their house. Should your relative’s needs increase over time, the caregiver will draw up a new care plan to meet these changing requirements.
Elder is always happy to draw up a care plan unique to your loved one’s specific needs in their home, so contact us for a no-obligation chat, and discover the difference that Elder care could make for all the family.
