Private live-in care is an increasingly popular choice for those looking for the peace of mind of knowing that their loved ones are safe and cared for.
While nursing care and care homes have always been the first choices in caring for loved ones, once long-term 24/7 care is required, many people are discovering that arranging live-in care with a reputable company is a better and often more cost-effective option.
Elder is the UK’s leading live-in care provider, and our care advisors are available to you 8am-8pm, seven days a week.
Why is live-in care in Warrington & St Helens better than a care home?
Change can be upsetting for someone in later life, and nothing represents a more significant change than leaving your own home to live in residential care with strangers.
Besides, if your elderly relative is comfortable at home and only needs assistance and company, doesn’t it make more sense to keep them in their home and bring the care to them?
Live-in care allows the care recipient to stay in their own home, close to the places they know, their community and possibly their family and friends, and when able, to carry on with their activities and hobbies too.
For our customers, Elder’s live-in care service means peace of mind. They can go about their lives as usual, safe in the knowledge that someone is home with their parent or loved one, keeping them safe and content in a familiar environment.
What does a live-in carer do?
Live-in carers are engaged on a week by week basis to provide trained care and companionship. They move into your loved one’s house, staying in a spare room, and they supply everything from companion care to housework help and complex care.
In many ways, they are a family member, but one whose only job is to care for your loved one, and they are specially trained to work with those living with dementia.
Our carers are also proactive in supporting the health and wellbeing of your loved ones.
They are there to ensure medicines are taken, doctor’s appointments are kept, that your loved one gets the nutrition they need and time outdoors to promote mobility and independence.
