There comes a time in most of our lives when we can no longer live as independently as we have before and require 24-hour care and support. Perhaps this is a situation your loved one has found themselves in, but you couldn’t bear to move them into a care home. Elder may just have the perfect alternative for you.
How can live-in care in Radnorshire best support your loved one?
There’s no reason to think that because your loved one now requires 24/7 care that their lives need to come to a standstill. Live-in care enables your loved one to safely carry on with their social life or outings as much as they desire.
Elder’s carers can support older people living throughout the area, including in the towns of New Radnor, Knighton, Llandrindod Wells and Presteigne. A live-in carer from Elder will enable your loved one to make the most of their time and help them to get out to enjoy the nearby amenities as well as accompanying them on visits and excursions.
Your loved one may enjoy a visit to the Elan Valley Visitor Centre, which has good disabled access and is set in a wonderful location close to the historical Caban Coch dam. The county’s largest town, Llandrindod Wells, is famous for its health giving waters and is popular with locals and visitors alike. The lake park is a popular destination, where light refreshments can be enjoyed in the Lakeside Café and Bistro in beautiful surroundings.
There are many other places of interest for your loved one to visit with their carer, such as the Judge’s Lodging museum in Presteigne and the various events held at the Royal Welsh Showground. With a carer around 24/7, your loved one will be safe and able to live their life as fully as possible and enjoy all their community has to offer.
How does live-in care work?
Live-in care differs from a care home in that we take into consideration not only the individuals care needs but their general routines, preferences and dislikes. This is outlined in a care plan that is discussed prior so that everyone, especially the caregiver, are aware of where help is needed and where it isn’t.
This is important because we don’t want anyone to give up anything they can still do and still want to do. Some people might find cooking too tiring but still like to do their own ironing. It is better to get to grips about where help is needed so that the transition into home care can be as unproblematic and harmonious between carer and caregiver as possible.
Our carers will help by collecting your relative’s prescriptions from local services such as Llandrindod Pharmacy or escorting them to clinic appointments at Llandrindod Wells Medical Practice in Spa Road East.
