Why is live-in care a better alternative to a care home in Aylesbury?
If your elderly loved one is struggling to look after themselves day-to-day, you are almost certainly worried about how they will cope. You may even be looking into local care homes in the region as a possible solution. But did you know that you could arrange for a live-in carer to move into your loved one’s home, providing care, companionship, and support around the clock?
Elder specialises in providing highly-trained, sympathetic carers who can enable your elderly relative to live an independent lifestyle without any of the associated worries. You can relax in the knowledge that your loved one is safe and happy throughout the day and night, with someone on hand to help, even in the event of an emergency.
What does a live-in carer do in Aylesbury?
An Elder carer can perform any task around the home that will help to make your loved one’s life easier and safer. Depending on your relative or partner’s health and fitness, this could encompass anything from companion care right through to the more rigorous demands of dementia care.
The carer will facilitate outings and activities for physical and mental stimulation. Perhaps your loved one enjoys playing bowls at Wendover Road, or would like to participate in the weekly tea dances and ballroom dancing at the Alfred Rose Community Centre in Dunsham Lane?
Your loved one’s Elder caregiver can ensure that there are plenty of stimulating outings. This could include a trip to Waddesdon Manor or Wendover Woods, which makes for a pleasant outing at any time of the year, or perhaps a visit to nearby Bishopstone, Bierton or Weston Turville.
The carer could also ensure that your relative arrives promptly at the Berryfield Medical Centre or Poplar Grove Practice for appointments, and will remind your loved one to take any medications .
Caregivers are prepared to complete a range of tasks to make your loved one’s life easier, whether that involves housework and gardening, or more personal tasks such as assistance with dressing, bathing, and toileting.

What conditions is care at home suitable for in Aylesbury?
We’ve helped hundreds of families across the UK deal with live-in care needs. We know every case is different. That’s why our large pool of carers have a hugely broad range of skills and experiences. From simple home care solutions, to the more complex needs of dementia care, we’re able to find the live-in carer with the profile to look after your loved one.
It all means we’re able to provide a more bespoke option than any care home in Aylesbury. Live-in carers understand the needs and wants of your loved one faster than any care home.
The reason? While carers in care homes have to spread their hours across a number of patients. With home care, there’s no such thing a patient. Private live-in care is personal. It’s one-to-one, meaning home carer and live-in care recipient are able to build a rapport quickly. A rapport that lasts, and helps build an understanding of one and other. And often lasting friendships.

We pay 24/7 live-in carers a fair wage for their work. Every Elder carer gets at least the national Living Wage. Elder home carers do a great job, so they deserve a wage that makes them happy. Ultimately, happy live-in carers are better live-in carers. It means we’re able to get the best talent out there to look after your loved one.
Why choose Elder?
Elder provides carers that feel like family. To make it happen, our team of expert live-in care advisors personally match your loved one to the perfect live-in carer. They’ll go through the stuff you’d expect, such as the medical condition of your loved one and what specific care requirements they need.
But at Elder, we believe live-in care is about much more than basic requirements. It’s about a relationship between two human beings. Obviously, if someone is going to move into your loved one’s home, you’re going to want to be completely sure they’re the perfect fit.
That’s where our unique character-matching comes in. When you have your free care consultation with one of our team, we’ll go through each and every detail of your loved one’s personality. That means what kind of person they are. What kind of character they get on with. What they love to do. What they dislike. Where they like to go on excursions. What they like to have for tea. If they have any pets, we’ll even ask about their routine of looking after them.
It all means the live-in care your loved one gets is completely unique. Completely bespoke. Elder live-in care is better live-in care. With us, you get more guidance, more transparency and total peace of mind.
