Why choose a live-in carer in Bracknell?
If your elderly loved one is struggling to live independently in Bracknell, 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 day and night support they need to have 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 Bracknell?
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 home care in Bracknell suitable for?
Live-in care is suitable for those with a huge array of conditions. From the complex needs of those who are in need of dementia care, to those who just want home help and a companion around the house, there’s no one-size fits all. We have a huge pool of carers. Together they provide a huge range of skills, experiences and abilities – all of which we’re able to draw upon to match to your loved one’s specific requirements.
Put simply, a live-in carer from Elder is able to provide the same level of care as any care home in Bracknell. However, home care also provides a personal level of friendship and companionship that you just wouldn’t be able to get in a care home or similar institution.
Why is live-in care the better alternative to a care home in Bracknell?
Private home care is becoming increasingly popular, year-on-year, month-on-month. It’s unsurprising, with Elder you’re able to get live-in care in Bracknell that’s perfectly tailored and matched to your loved one’s situation. It’s one-on-one care that simply isn’t available at a care home.
Another huge advantage of home care is the lack of disruption to the life of your loved one. They’re able to continue the life they’ve always had. To keep doing the hobbies they love. To keep attending regular activities with their friends. To participate in family events. There are none of the worries of meeting new faces. The fear of feeling trapped, or the separation from family and possessions that comes with moving into a care home. Live-in care keeps your loved one at the heart of their community, in a place they feel safe.
Elder’s 24/7 care service means you can relax safe in the knowledge that your loved one is having the life they’ve always had. With the added reassurance they’ve now got the help they really need.
