Life can get hectic at times, especially if are looking after children or even grandchildren while dealing with the increasing assistance and elderly care that your parents might require.
Elder provides live-in care across the county of Worcestershire, providing bespoke home care packages which are tailored to suit your elderly relative’s level of need. Whatever support your loved one requires, Elder’s expertly qualified team can provide 24/7 care and companionship to help them remain in their own home.
There are different options when it comes to elderly care, and which you choose may depend on how much and what type of care your loved ones require. It may be that they have physical issues or need dementia care. Or perhaps they just need a little more help and support or some companion care to help them maintain their quality of life.
Why choose care at home?
Of course, there are nursing homes and care homes, but it can be both more cost effective and much better for your elderly relative to have support in their own home. Care at home – whether for a few hours a day or full-time 24-hours a day, seven days a week – can offer good quality, one-to-one companionship and care to your loved one, at a level that would be hard to achieve in a nursing or care home setting.
For those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, in particular, moving from familiar surroundings can be distressing, while staying in their own home for as long as possible reduces stress and confusion and is much better for their overall peace of mind.
Familiar belongings and environments will minimise confusion and provide comfort to your loved one, and live-in care can be the perfect solution to enable them to stay in their home while still getting the support and help they need.
This type of home care is the fastest growing area of caregiving, a modern alternative solution to care and nursing homes. It means that you can ensure your parent or elderly relative receives the help and assistance they need alongside companionship and support while being able to stay in the place they love best.
Elderly care in Worcestershire

What our customers say
“It is reassuring to know that my father is being cared for by someone who understands his needs and his dementia symptoms.”
Level of care
This could just be a couple of hours a week to provide a little assistance and companionship, support with some light housework, perhaps help with showering or bathing or just to ensure all is well with the care recipient.
It may be that your family member requires a carer to come in in the morning and perhaps at night, to assist with bedtime routines. A few hours a day to help with these kinds of tasks, plus support in cooking or shopping, as well as supporting and providing companionship could be all that’s needed.
However, your elderly loved one may struggle with mobility or have other physical challenges or might have dementia which affects their ability to make decisions. If they require a full-time carer to be there to ensure their safety and everyday living needs, you can arrange 24-hour care to be provided seven days a week for as long as is required.
It may be the care needs are short lived, for example after recovering from a fall or an operation, or perhaps as a respite for a family member who is the usual carer.
The other advantage of care provided in this setting is its flexibility. You can start with a few hours a week and increase or decrease when circumstances change, all within the care recipient’s own home.
Importantly with this type of care, there is continuity and consistency with the caregivers themselves. Being able to see the same friendly face day in, day out, rather than different carers can make a real difference to a care recipient’s frame of mind. The carer becomes a friend as well as a helper and the relationship is more satisfying for both of them.
You get the reassurance that you are providing the best help and support for your loved one, and also have more of a personal relationship with the carer yourself, as they will be more familiar to you as well as to the care recipient.
Elder’s live-in care service for the Worcestershire area provides a supportive, bespoke care package to provide whatever level of care you and your elderly relative require. We are happy to provide customer testimonials to show just how good our services are and customer satisfaction.
