What makes Elder the best care solution?

Elder provides live-in care which enables your loved one to remain in their own home, even if they need quite complex care. Research has revealed that many older people are more active in surroundings that are familiar, enabling them to stay healthier for longer. Our carers will support your loved one to be as active as possible whilst meeting all their health and social care needs in their own home.

How can live-in care ensure my loved one is happy?

Elder’s carers will talk to your loved one about the type of things they like to do in the area. They will accompany them on visits to local attractions that they may be interested in, such as Stirling Castle or the Smith Art Gallery and Museum. Your loved one may enjoy a short walk in their neighbourhood, whether they live in Causewayhead, Abbey Craig or Bannockburn.

Your loved-ones carer can either be insured on your relative’s car, or accompany them on public transport when they wish to enjoy visits further afield to visit Kings Park in the city, or a shopping trip to the Victorian Stirling Arcade

There are many advantages to having a live-in carer who can escort your loved one out and about, as well as meet all their more personal needs in the home. They can also support your relative to enjoy their community and maintain relationships with friends, family and neighbours.

How does live-in care from Elder work?

Your loved one’s unique needs and preferences will be documented in a care plan that specifically details what the carer will do to keep them as comfortable and safe as possible. They will carry out tasks such as cleaning, laundry or cooking that have become difficult for your relative, but support them to carry on with any activities they choose to do.

If personal care such as washing, dressing and assistance with moving around is needed, the live-in carer will also help with this, whilst still supporting your loved one to remain as independent as they can. If there are any changes in your loved one’s condition, the care plan will be adapted to reflect these.

Elder’s carers will also help your loved one to order prescriptions when needed and collect them from pharmacies such as Boots in Port Street. Your loved one may well have appointments to attend in Port Street too, as this is where Stirling Optical is based, as well as the Dental Practices of James Dolan and Stirling Dental Care, and their live-in carer will be able to escort them to these.

Why is live-in care the better alternative to a care home in Stirling?

Private live-in care is an increasingly popular type of in-home support that gives our customers in Stirling the peace of mind of knowing that their loved ones are safe and looked after. It provides those in need with the one-to-one tailored attention and companionship that care homes struggle to provide.

Change can be upsetting for someone in later life. If your elderly relative or spouse is comfortable in Stirling and does not want to leave their community behind, a live-in carer will help them to continue seeing their neighbours, friends and family, and carry on, when possible, with their activities and hobbies.

Elder’s live-in care service enables you live your life without worrying about whether your loved one is struggling in the unfamiliar surrounds of a care home.

Live-in carers in Stirling can move into your loved one’s house and supply anything from companion care to complex care, such as for those living with dementia.

Our carers are highly trained and well experienced in looking after those with intricate needs, so you can rest assured that the benefit of remaining in the comfort of their own home won’t compromise the level of care they receive.
