Ceredigion, is a beautiful part of the country for the elderly to reside. If you have an elderly loved one living in this area who is in need of elderly care, then a live-in care package from Elder might be the ideal solution.
We have dedicated carers working in Ceredigion, Aberystwyth, Aberaeron, New Quay and right across the region, so wherever your loved one lives, we can provide a bespoke care package to meet their individual needs.
What is live-in care?
With a live-in care package, a caregiver moves in with your elderly relative and offers them the round the clock companionship and support that they need to remain in their own home and enjoy an independent lifestyle. Many elderly people are reluctant to move into residential care, as it would mean them giving up their treasured belongings and leaving their family home, community, friends, and neighbours.
Live-in care also enables your loved one to have pets that they would have to be separated from were they to be relocated to a care home. There are many well-known health advantages associated with pet ownership, it combats stress and is great for those with high blood pressure. Our carers will ensure that well-loved animals are taken care of too.
With care at home, your loved one is given all the help they need to remain in their own home, while enjoying the companionship and support of a dedicated, one to one carer. Your loved one’s carer will be able to lend a hand with a range of tasks, but will only ever do as little or as much as your relative requests.
How can Elder carers help?
Our carers can assist with household tasks such as shopping, preparing nutritious meals and cleaning or gardening, as well as with intimate personal care tasks, such as getting to the toilet, bathing and getting dressed.
We always try to match your loved one with a carer who shares at least some of their hobbies and interests, so carers might organise days out they can enjoy together, perhaps taking in Ceredigion Castle, a stroll along Poppit Sands beach or an evening at the Small World Theatre. They may also take them shopping to help keep them active, with Ceredigion Guildhall Market a popular choice.
If they are insured to drive your relative’s car, caregivers might also be able to run them to appointments at nearby hospitals such as the Bronglais or Ceredigion and District Hospitals.

What are the advantages over a care home in Ceredigion?
With live-in care, your loved one retains full control over those everyday decisions so often denied to those who live in a residential care home. Trivial as it may sound, being able to decide what and where they eat, when they go to bed and get up in the morning and even when they go to the bathroom means that your loved one keeps their independence and freedom for as long as possible.
