Maidenhead is the ideal town for your loved one to receive live-in care in, with some fantastic parks and open space to enjoy. With excellent leisure facilities including a cinema, the Magnet Leisure Centre and Tenpin Bowling on their doorstep and a private carer who’ll be happy to provide them with transport and company, you can rest assured that your loved one will be living life to the full.
Elder can tailor your live-in care package to allow your loved one to remain in the familiar surroundings of their own home while ensuring they receive all the support and companionship that they need. This is a way of allowing an older person to retain some degree of independence, avoiding the disruption and upheaval associated with moving into a care facility. It also means that both the care recipient and their loved ones can relax in the knowledge that someone is there around-the-clock to deal with any problem.
Providing peace of mind
If your elderly relative lives alone and requires assistance to carry out their day-to-day routine, you may be anxious about those times in the day when they are alone. Vulnerable older people, particularly those living with dementia, face a higher risk of coming to harm if they are left on their own for extended periods. A live-in carer offers the peace of mind of knowing that your loved one has someone to rely on around the clock.

What our customers say
“The security and patience of live-in care has meant my mother has relaxed and her general disposition has improved to no end.”
Elder’s live-in carers usually work in pairs, so your loved one only has two faces to get to know! This is the ideal way to ensure continuity of care at home, meaning that your loved one will get to know their two carers and won’t have to worry about strangers visiting their home to provide their personal assistance – a situation that is commonplace with other home care providers. This is even more important for dementia patients who can become distressed when cared for by strangers, which is inevitable in a care home with such a high turn over of different staff.
Your elderly relative’s care plan will be written according to your personal needs and requirements and will incorporate members of any professionals involved in their well-being, such as their GP or nurse. Your wishes are central to formulating the care plan, to ensure that both you and your loved one are happy. You can make specific requests about the way you would like things to be done and your loved one can have a full say in the time that they wake up, have lunch and go to bed etc.
Supporting existing relationships
A live-in carer can help with your loved one’s interaction with relatives and friends to ensure that their social like stays in tact. The carer can offer help with communication, whether by phone, the internet or even letter if they’d prefer. Sometimes, your relative may require assistance with a favourite hobby or activity, and this too can be incorporated into the care package.
Most elderly people who require a level of care express a strong desire to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. Remaining at home, surrounded by familiar things, can be vital to the quality of life for an older person. A dedicated 24-hour carer is a perfect answer to both security and independence.
If your relative is living with dementia, at-home care can be invaluable in supporting them in their familiar environment. Moving out of their home and into a care home can be a distressing experience for any older person, but especially those with dementia, leading to high levels of confusion and anxiety. Elder provides live-in carers in Maidenhead, experienced in dementia care who possess the skills to deal with the everyday challenges presented. Our compassionate one-to-one carers are accustomed to communicating with those who may be struggling to make sense of the world around them.
Live-in elderly care offers a range of benefits and is increasing in popularity as the awareness of live-in care increases. If you are looking for a way to help your loved one with daily life while helping them to retain their independence, contact Elder who will provide further information on how live-in care is a suitable option for your loved one.
