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?

And often lasting friendships.
