Live-in care can enable your loved one to remain comfortably and safely in their own home, even when they have reached the situation where they need long-term care and someone around 24 hours a day.
Why is live-in care preferable to a care home admission in Newcastle?
This type of care, in the elderly person’s own home, has become increasingly popular because it provides one to one attention that is tailored specifically to the individual’s needs. Care homes find it difficult to maintain the continuity of care, the personal element and the companionship that a live-in carer can provide.
Your loved one will probably be much happier remaining in their own home, surrounded by their treasured possessions than they would be if they had to relocate to a care home.
They will be able to stay close to friends and neighbours and continue to do the things they enjoy locally, with the support of a carer who is around whenever they need help.
You will not have to worry about whether your loved one is safe or whether they are having problems settling down in a strange place.
Elder has carers throughout the city and in nearby towns such as Gateshead, Jarrow and Wallsend who can move into an elderly person’s home with them and supply all the physical and emotional care they need.
In what conditions is care at home suitable for in Newcastle?
Elder’s carers are highly trained and have experience in caring for people with many different conditions. Whether your loved one is living with dementia and needs complex care solutions to ensure they stay safe, or would benefit from having someone to assist with the general daily activities of living and provide companionship, Elder’s service can be the solution.
Our care recipients include people with heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s care needs, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and many other conditions.
How can live-in care improve my elderly loved one’s life in Newcastle?
Your loved one may need care, but they should not become housebound. Our carers will support your relative to carry on doing the things they enjoy, accompanying them out and about for walks to keep them mobile, or on excursions, if they prefer.
The vibrant city of Newcastle has so much to offer elderly people. Your loved one may enjoy visiting the tranquil Jesmond Dene Park with their carer or perhaps taking a trip to Birkheads Secret Gardens, where they can enjoy light refreshments in the coffee shop after looking around the gardens.
History lovers will find the recently refurbished Newcastle Castle fascinating. The Black Gate building is fully accessible, but the Castle Keep is not suitable for people with limited mobility.
With a live-in carer to ensure that your relative stays safe, they can enjoy visiting friends, a shopping trip to Eldon Park and many other activities in the neighbourhood.

What our customers say
“The security and patience of live-in care has meant my mother has relaxed and her general disposition has improved to no end.”
How does Elder’s live-in care service work?
Elder draws up a care plan detailing your loved one’s individual needs. The live-in carer will do whatever is needed to keep the care recipient as safe as they can and meet their identified needs.
Many elderly people need help with day to day activities such as getting dressed and moving around. Whatever their personal care needs, the live-in carer will provide assistance.
They also help with household chores such as shopping, cleaning or laundry and will cook meals to ensure your relative is able to enjoy a healthy, balanced diet.
People in the city are fortunate to benefit from the services of well-known hospitals such as the RVI (Royal Victoria Hospital) and Freeman’s Hospital.
If for any reason, your loved one needs to attend an outpatient’s appointment or a clinic at one of these hospitals, their live-in carer will go with them and will make sure that any information they are given is passed on appropriately.
Why is Elder the preferred care solution?
Maintaining as high a level of independence as possible for our elderly care recipients is one of Elder’s aims. Your loved one is more likely to remain active in their familiar surroundings, and their carer will support them to continue enjoying activities such as gardening if they wish.
If your loved one is a pet owner, they will be able to continue enjoying the proven benefits, including lower blood pressure and stress levels, that spending time with their animals brings. Their live-in carer will ensure that pets are looked after and fed too.
What is the cost of live-in care?
Elder charges £1225 a week for its live-in care service. This can be up to 30 percent less than it would cost for your loved one to go into a care home. The saving is even more apparent for couples who both require care, and it can also ensure that they are able to stay together.
If they are admitted to a care home, couples whose care needs are different may have to be separated, which can be very upsetting for them after a lifetime spent together.
What makes Elder unique?
Elder is committed to providing the highest possible standard of live-in care for the elderly. Each care recipient’s interests are carefully matched with the carer, ensuring that they have plenty in common on which to build a friendly and comfortable working relationship.
Elder’s support team is always available to help with information or give you the support you need on a day to day basis. If you would like to discuss your loved one’s situation with no obligation, call us today, and our care advisors will be very pleased to give you all the information you need.
