The town of Warwick is best known for the medieval Warwick Castle, founded by William the Conqueror. The timber-framed buildings and St. John’s House Museum, housed in a Jacobean mansion with gardens, make it an ideal location for the elderly.
An empowering way to live
Live-in care enables your loved one to remain independent in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, close to their friends and family. This security and familiarity are extremely important for those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s care needs.
At Elder, we provide a bespoke care plan for your loved one. Whether they require several hours per week, for a few months to give a family carer a rest or ongoing around-the-clock care, we are very flexible. We can get a carer to your loved one’s home in Warwick within 24 hours.
We do our best to match our carers to your loved one’s personality and interests to increase the chance of a strong bond forming. Having someone to talk to and share interests with promotes healthy, active brain stimulation and eliminates loneliness, which can have adverse effects on health.
Live-in care is often more affordable than a care home, especially where an elderly couple is concerned, as care homes will charge per person. With Elder, you can save up to an average of £1,200 a month compared to traditional agencies, and support and care can be up to 30% cheaper than a care home.
We provide live-in care in Warwick and the surrounding areas
At Elder, we provide compassionate and professional live-in care in and around Warwick. Our meticulously selected carers can be with you in as little as 24 hours.
What our customers say
“I have been able to return to my normal life totally relaxed that my mother is in capable hands with all her needs being more than catered for.”
Choosing a carer
At Elder, our recruitment process is very thorough and we pride ourselves on the level that we go to to ensure that your loved one shares as many interests with their carer as possible.
Elder thoroughly checks the background and qualifications of all potential carers. All home care professionals must complete a written scenario-based exam as part of the application process and attend a face-to-face interview. All of our carers are English speaking, and DBS and CRB checked. Live-in carers will work on a rota basis with one other carer to ensure for continuity.
In addition to receiving a professional and dedicated carer 24/7, we provide a support service, so you can contact us at any time with any questions or queries. We provide generous salaries and an excellent support system, so we can help our carers every step of the way.
Our carers are trained to tend to complex and progressive illnesses and conditions, such as dementia. Your carer will cater to your loved one’s needs at any time of day to ensure that they receive the best care possible.
What you can expect from your carer?
Elderly care experts will assist with all types of tasks, such as housework, cooking and laundry. They will also check all medication, arrange doctors appointments and help with mobility and personal hygiene. A carer will take the stress of day-to-day chores off of your loved one, enabling them to engage in activities that they enjoy.
Your carer’s job is not just to perform daily tasks, but to provide companion care. We only hire compassionate professionals who go above and beyond what is expected of a traditional care provider. Our live-in carers make sure your loved one can continue with community activities and provide assistance with family visits, so you can rest assured that your loved one won’t be lonely.
What are the costs?
Before you arrange live-in care you should make sure you are aware of any local funding options available. Elder has a flexible budget system, allowing you to set your payment amount per week or per month. While funding and resources differ across the UK, Warwick has some brilliant resources and funding options. You should apply for a needs assessment check through the local Council to see what services you’re entitled to regarding funding.
Your loved one’s independence is invaluable and this should be taken into account when considering care costs. An older person is generally happier in familiar surroundings with dedicated one-on-one care, making live-in care the perfect at-home care).
Colin and Dulcie’s story
Dulcie is 102-years-old and lives with her son Colin, his wife Mary, and her Carer Sarah. She has dementia and has had full-time live-in care for over two years. We talk to the family about the challenges of finding the right care solution for a fiercely independent woman – and how the positive benefits of live-in care with Sarah has transformed all of their lives.
