What does live-in care entail?
When your loved one reaches the stage of needing 24/7 long-term care and support, you may automatically think that they need to go into a care home. However, the majority of older people do not want to leave their familiar surroundings, so Elder can provide all the care they need in the comfort of their own home.
If you are wondering how Elder can provide your loved one in Bray with the highest standard of home care, carefully tailored to their individual needs, simply contact our care advisors to find out more.
Why is live-in care preferable to a care home in Bray?
Whether your loved one lives in the village itself or nearby in Taplow, Dorney or Holyport, for example, private live-in care can give you the peace of mind in knowing that your loved one is safe and well cared for. They will benefit from companionship and the one to one attention that a care home would find very difficult to provide.
If your loved one is happy at home and does not want to move away from their community, a live-in carer will enable them to continue enjoying hobbies and activities in and around the home and to stay in contact with friends and neighbours.
Live-in Care can supply any level of care depending on your loved one’s needs, with carers carefully selected to have common interests with them.
What makes Elder the best care solution in Bray?
Our trusted service will enable your loved one to remain as independent as they can in the place they want to be. Their care needs will be detailed in an individual care plan so that whatever support they need will be provided.
In addition to the physical and emotional support, a live-in carer will be able to help with other aspects of their life. If they need to attend an appointment at a location such as Optico Opticians or St Mark’s Hospital in Maidenhead, their live-in carer will accompany them or could collect any prescriptions they need from Olive pharmacy or Hetpole pharmacy in the town.
Another advantage of live-in care is that people generally remain more physically active in familiar surroundings and their carer will support and encourage them to participate in activities they enjoy such as gardening.

How does live-in care keep your loved one safe and comfortable in Bray?
The parish is a wonderful place for older people to live. Our carers will enable your loved one to make the most of the area by accompanying them out for a stroll around the village or on trips to historical locations such as Windsor Castle or Dorney Court if this is how they like to spend their time. The lovely memorial gardens at Stoke Poges are also within easy reach.
Having a live-in carer around to ensure that your loved one is safe means that they can continue to enjoy the best quality of life close to friends and neighbours in an environment where they feel comfortable and at home.
How does Elder live-in care work?
Elder dedicates time to creating a bespoke care plan that entirely fits the personality and needs of the care recipient. Everyone’s needs will differ so the service we provide should as well.
Take for instance your loved one still enjoys preparing meals for dinner but finds it difficult to reach items on higher shelves; their carer will be happy to assist whenever they are needed. They can adapt to whatever the needs and requirements either you or your loved one outlines, however much they change over time. The caregiver’s priority is always the safety and comfort of your relative or spouse.
What is the cost of live-in care in Bray?
Elder’s live-in care service costs are an all-inclusive flat rate of £895 per week. Care homes can cost up to 30% more than live-in care. Naturally, this doubles if it is a couple who both require care.
Elder pays carers above the average rate to guarantee we work with only the most skilled and proficient caregivers in the UK. Despite being competitively priced, you’re paying for quality and the peace of mind that your loved one is in the best hands.
Why choose Elder?
Our enthusiasm for providing elderly people and those requiring dementia care the essential opportunity at a comfortable and dignified later life is what drives us to provide such high standards of one-to-one care.
