Why choose a live-in carer in Ascot?
If your elderly loved one is struggling to live independently in Ascot, or the surrounding villages such as Cranbourne, Windlesham or Maiden’s Green, Elder can provide a live-in carer who will move into their home to provide help and assistance with a variety of tasks. This provides an excellent alternative to the more traditional care home model, without the need for your loved one to leave their own familiar surroundings.
Most older people value their independence very highly and are reluctant to part with a lifetime’s treasures and mementos as they downsize their possessions in readiness for a move into residential accommodation. Choosing a 24/7 caregiver to move in with them instead, gives your loved one the opportunity to remain in their own much-loved home, with friends and neighbours close at hand.
Our clients can relax in the knowledge that their loved one has one-to-one care and attention throughout the day and night. The caregiver can provide a range of services to make life easier and more rewarding for your relative. Some care recipients require companionship and the knowledge that someone is on hand to help them if needed, whilst others require more intensive care, such as assistance with bathing, dressing and toileting, and the more rigorous demands of dementia care.
How can live-in care enhance my elderly loved one’s life in Ascot?
Many elderly people have gardens that they have carefully tended for many years, and an Elder caregiver can help them to maintain the standards they have achieved. With fresh air and exercise renowned for promoting good health, this can be an excellent way of ensuring that your loved one stays fit and active.
Many Elder care recipients have much-loved pets, which are not commonly allowed into residential care homes. Research has shown that owning and caring for a pet can help to foster a sense of wellbeing, and a live-in carer can help with feeding and exercising pets, as well as facilitating trips to the vet, if required.
Shopping trips, social events, and even a trip to the iconic races, can all be undertaken thanks to the help of the carer. Stimulating and entertaining outings, such as a trip to the town’s Alzheimer Cafe, or perhaps a visit to the local District Day Centre can all help to alleviate boredom and promote conversation.
From help with the housework, to preparing and cooking healthy, tasty and nutritious meals, the carer’s job is to ensure that your loved one leads a happy and fulfilling life.

What conditions is care at home suitable for?
For live-in care, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Elder carers have a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds, meaning we always have a home care option to fit your needs. That means live-in care is a genuine alternative to a care home in Ascot, rather than a temporary solution. Live-in carers are able to adapt the level of care they provide depending on any changes in circumstance.
Why is live-in care the better alternative to a care home in Ascot?
Private live-in care is becoming increasingly popular. It’s not difficult to see why. Home care provides the best of both worlds. Your loved one is able to get the care and support they need while continuing to have the life they’ve always had. More than that, the personal level of care provided by a live-in carer means your loved has more time dedicated to them than in a care home.
That’s not the only advantage over a care home in Ascot. With Elder live-in care in Ascot, your loved one doesn’t have to deal with the disruption and upheaval of leaving the home they’ve become accustomed to. Change is difficult when you get older. Home care means not having to live with strangers, not having to ditch cherished possessions and not losing the love of adored pets. That’s what a care home means.
Home care means maintaining the family home. That means keeping family Christmas – and all the other special moments that keep us happy and positive.
