What does live-in care mean?

For an older person who does not want to move into a care home but is no longer able to live alone in their own home due to their increased care needs, Elder live-in care is the perfect alternative that provides all the support they need to maintain as much independence as possible.

Staying in their familiar environment, close to friends and family, can give your loved one the best possible quality of life, and you will have the peace of mind of knowing that they are safe and well cared for 24/7.

What makes live-in care the better alternative to a care home in Middlesex?

This type of care provision is becoming increasingly popular because it can provide all the support your loved one needs in their day to day life, combined with companionship from a carer who moves into their home and gets to know all their preferences and needs.

In later life, people are often quite upset at the idea of change, especially something as big as moving into residential care. Your loved one is likely not to want to move away from their neighbours and community, so a live-in carer can help them to continue with their chosen way of life and even expand their horizons a little by accompanying them to visit nearby attractions.

Age-appropriate days out could consist of visits to Kew Gardens, Osterley Park or Strawberry Hill House. Their carer can also support them in meeting friends at Elmsleigh Shopping Centre or attending the weekly Scrabble group at Staines Community Centre.

Live-in carers will also help with tasks such as collecting prescriptions from outlets such as Broadway Pharmacy, or ensuring that your loved one is able to attend clinic appointments at Staines Health Group.

Whatever your relative’s needs, from companion care to the complex interventions that someone living with dementia might require, you can be assured that all their needs will be met by Elder’s highly trained carers, whether their home is in Staines-upon-Thames, Sunbury-upon-Thames, Shepperton, Ashford or another Middlesex town.

We provide live-in care in Middlesex and the surrounding areas

At Elder, we provide compassionate and professional live-in care in and around Middlesex. Our meticulously selected carers can be with you in as little as 24 hours.

Why is Elder the best solution for my loved one?

Our carers are aware of the importance of encouraging your loved one to remain as active as they can and will support them in the activities and hobbies they enjoy. We find that the elderly are often far more active in familiar surroundings and likelier to participate in physical activities such as gardening, which has many proven health and therapeutic benefits. Our live-in carers are aware of the positive effects of exercise for the elderly, and will encourage those they are caring for to be active when possible.

If your loved one has pets, live-in care will mean they are able to stay together, unlike in a care home where they would have to be separated, which can cause tremendous upset and grief. It is well-documented that pet ownership promotes many health benefits such as lower blood pressure and reduced stress, so knowing that their live-in carer will ensure their beloved pet is taken care of, can also improve your loved one’s wellbeing.

How much live-in care in Middlesex cost?

You may be amazed to learn that live-in care is actually 30% cheaper than care homes in Middlesex. Pair this fact with the benefit of not having to uproot your loved one’s whole life, and you can understand why it is now so popular.

Standard live-in care with Elder is [live-in-price] per week. There are no hidden costs, and you’re free to add additional extras only if you want them, so you can plan your budget with confidence.

Why choose Elder?

We are always enthusiastic about providing top of the notch one-to-one elderly care across the nation. We want to give care in later life a new connotation: we want to enable freedom and instil confidence in living the fullest life possible in spite of needing support.

Confidence in oneself during this new phase of life starts with confidence in the caregiver. We consider it imperative to bring together carer and recipient on the basis of shared interests and complimenting personalities so a working friendship can evolve.

Elders care support team will accompany you, your loved ones and their caregiver along the journey to offer advice and information seven days a week.

Call us between 8 am and 8 pm and one of our care experts will be delighted to discuss your situation with absolutely no commitment.
