If you have an elderly relative who has reached the stage of needing long term care 24 hours a day, but they don’t want to go into a care home, Elder live-in care can provide the alternative that you’re seeking.
What is live-in care?
This is an increasingly popular care option in which a dedicated caregiver comes to stay in the older person’s home and provides all the support and care that would previously only have been available in a residential setting.
The majority of older people say they would prefer to remain in their own home as long as possible in later life and, for people who are living with dementia in particular, it means that they do not have to face a frightening and confusing move into a strange care home.
Why is live-in care in Aldershot a better solution than a care home?
Your elderly family member would benefit from one to one care that is specially tailored to their unique needs. You would have the peace of mind of knowing they were safe and had the companionship of a private carer whenever they needed someone to speak to.
Being able to remain in their own home, surrounded by their precious possessions and their memories is very important to many people. It is also better for them to be in their own familiar neighbourhood, close to friends and neighbours, and to be able to continue enjoying activities in their local area.
Whatever your elderly relative’s care needs, Elders highly trained and experienced caregivers will be able to support them appropriately. We have carers in Aldershot and in the nearby towns of Camberley, Farnham and Farnborough, who can move into an older person’s home and provide the highest standard of live-in care.
What makes Elder the best care solution in Aldershot?
Elder’s carers recognise the importance of promoting independence in their elderly care recipients, and will support your family member to do as much as they can to keep fit and active. If they have a hobby such as swimming, dancing or gardening, our carers will do whatever they can to help them to continue with this.
If your relative has pets, they won’t have to be separated from them as they would if they went into a care home, as their caregiver will look after their animals too.
How could live-in care enhance an elderly person’s life?
The ability to enjoy leisure time outside the home can become a problem for people whose confidence or mobility is impaired. A one to one caregiver will discuss with your relative what they enjoy doing nearby and, depending on individual circumstances, will accompany them out and about locally.
If your relative has a car, their carer could chauffeur them in this to places they would like to visit. The town benefits from many open spaces, so if your family member enjoys the open air, they could visit the Municipal Gardens, Princes Gardens or Manor Parkland, all of which are quite close to the town centre.
On wet days, a visit to Aldershot Military Museum can be very interesting, or perhaps your family member would like to browse the shops in the Wellington Centre. However they enjoy spending time, having their personal carer with them to ensure they are safe can broaden your relative’s horizons.

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 live-in care work?
A unique care plan will be created for your relative, tailored to their specific needs. Their carer will use this document to provide the care and support your loved one needs in their day to day life.
For example, the carer will carry out any domestic tasks that are difficult for your relative. This could include tasks such as cleaning, ironing or cooking, depending on what help they need. They will also look after your family member’s personal care, helping with tasks such as bathing, mobilising or whatever your relative needs assistance with.
Our carers also help their care recipients to attend clinics such as a podiatry appointment at Aldershot Centre for Health. Their carer will also go along with your relative to any other health care appointments they may have. If they need a prescription collected from a local chemist such as Rowlands Pharmacy, this will also be done.
If your relative’s condition deteriorates or their circumstances alter, the care plan will be updated accordingly.
How much does it cost to have live-in care in Aldershot?
Elder’s charge for this live-in care service starts at just £895 per week. This compares favourably with residential care and can be as much as 30 percent less. There are no extra charges to budget for and it makes even more sense when a couple needs care in the home.
