Why would you consider live-in care in Scunthorpe?

This alternative to admission into a care home can keep your loved one safe and comfortable in their own home and may be the solution you are looking for.

What makes live-in care preferable to a care home in Scunthorpe?
With live-in care from Elder, you can have confidence that your loved one will be well cared for and kept safe 24 hours a day, both in their home and when they go out. Unlike a care home, Elder can offer your loved one companionship and care specially designed to meet their individual needs.
Your relative will not only be spared the trauma of leaving their beloved home, and having to get used to the strange environment of a residential home, but they will also have extra support to enjoy activities in their neighbourhood. Their live-in carer will also help with social occasions such as meeting up with friends and neighbours.
Whether your loved one is living with a condition such as dementia and requires complex care, or they need companion care to keep them safe day and night, Elder’s carers have the experience and training to provide the high-quality support that they need. Elderly people in the town and in nearby villages such as Roxby, West Butterwick and Keadby can also benefit from live-in care from Elder. We operate nationwide.
Why is Elder Scunthorpe’s best care solution?
Your loved one will have a dedicated live-in carer who will provide the specific help that they need and will support them to engage in physical activities that provide numerous health benefits. Physical activities, such as gardening and light exercise are known to be beneficial for older people, and your loved one is likely to be more active in an environment that they know.
If your elderly relative has a cat or dog, going into residential care would mean being separated. Pet ownership is widely recognised to be associated with health benefits such as lowered blood pressure and reduced stress. It’s just one of the ways live-in care can result in improved health outcomes.

How can live-in care keep your elderly relative comfortable and safe?
Having a carer living in their home 24/7 means that your loved one will have all the companionship they need, as well as support to enjoy their life both at home and in the surrounding areas.
For example, your loved one may enjoy an occasional shopping trip and their carer could accompany them to one of the town’s shopping centres such as the Parishes Centre or the Foundry Shopping Centre.
The North Lincolnshire Museum in the town is an interesting place in which to spend an informative hour or two in the company of their live-in carer. Nature lovers may prefer a trip to Normanby Hall Country Park, where they could enjoy a gentle walk. Local residents can get an annual pass for savings on the entrance cost. Regardless of interests, there’s plenty for your loved one to do in and around the town with their caregiver, and you will know that there is someone around to ensure they stay safe wherever they go in the local community.
How does live-in care in Scunthorpe from Elder work?
After listening to the specific needs of your case, our care planning experts will create a bespoke care plan. The live-in carer will follow this plan and will do whatever is necessary to keep them as comfortable as possible.
In addition to helping with any personal care needs, the carer will also provide emotional support, being there to talk through any worries or anxieties. They will liaise with healthcare professionals from local GP surgeries, such as Skippingdale Health Centre, regarding any special care that may be needed.
The domestic side of running a house can become too much for people as they grow older, and the live-in carer will help with whatever tasks are necessary. If you have been worried that your loved one has not been eating well, their live-in carer will ensure that regular nutritious meals are provided for them.
The live-in carer will also go shopping for your loved one if needed, collecting supplies and prescriptions from services such as Weldricks Pharmacy.
Is live-in care more expensive than a care home in Scunthorpe?
Many people are surprised to learn that Elder’s live-in care service costs £795 per week. This can be substantially less than the cost of a care home. The slightly higher fee of £995 for two care recipients represents an often substantial saving on admitting two people into a care home.
