What is live-in care in Putney?
At Elder, we provide high-quality and affordable live-in care for the elderly, in and around Putney, 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 provide 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.
Your loved one and their carer can enjoy the many shops and restaurants that Putney has to offer. They can also, with the help of their carer, can enjoy walks along the river. You can therefore rest assured that your loved one is having fun, whilst receiving the best care possible.

There was a time when the only option for round-the-clock care was to place your loved one in a residential care home. Today, there is a host of practical, affordable and flexible dedicated care options tailored to you and your loved one’s needs. Whether the need is for short-term care following an injury or operation, quality companion care or consistent, compassionate dementia care, we work with you to identify and provide the support that your loved one needs.
There are many advantages of remaining in familiar surroundings, particularly for patients needing Alzheimer’s or dementia care. Care at home offers safe, dedicated support and peace of mind for everyone, with overnight assistance. Our dedicated carers keep you and your family up-to-date with your loved one’s progress and daily life.
Choosing a caregiver
At Elder, we believe that elderly care should be a personalised experience. Because your loved one will be living closely alongside their caregiver, we strive to match your relative with a live-in carer who shares at least some of their likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests. In many cases, a genuine, lasting bond of friendship grows between the carer and the person they are looking after, and they become as much a companion as a caregiver.
Early on, we will sit down with you, your loved one and any medical professionals involved in their care and decide on their level of need and ask about their preferences. We will then choose a caregiver who most closely matches what they require and want from their care package.

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.”
Companion care for couples
Sometimes a health condition in one partner can mean that a couple would have to be separated to be admitted to a residential care home or nursing home. This can be devastating for both, especially if they have been together for many years.
If your parents are living in Putney and one of them needs more support than the other can now provide, even with the help of visiting carers, it is probably time to look for a live-in care solution. Elder can provide trained carers who can move into your parents’ home and provide the support they need to remain together. As well as being best for your loved ones, this is also a very affordable elderly care option, particularly when both members of a couple need care and support.
Elder’s carers can provide assistance with all aspects of elderly care and help to manage medical conditions such as stroke, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and dementia. When the care package is arranged, the couple’s needs and wants will be detailed, and a carer who is equipped to meet all these will be chosen. If one member of the couple wants to continue providing as much help to the other as they can, the carer will respect this and just be there to offer support when required.
Elder can supply this type of elderly care provision on a permanent basis or for a more limited length of time, for example, while one member of the couple is convalescing following an illness or operation.
