Why choose live-in care in Worcester?

The lovely city of Worcester is the perfect place for your loved one to receive live-in care. 24-hour support in their own home means that your loved one has one-to-one care and companionship whenever they need it, without the need for any of the major disruption associated with moving into a care home.

Live-in care means that your loved one can stay in their own community where their friends, neighbours and family are, and continue to enjoy their normal activities with support from a carer. Even if your loved one is living with Alzheimer’s and needs complex care, Elder can supply highly trained carers who will provide the support they need.

Choosing live-in care means you do not have to worry about your loved one’s well-being because they will have a one-to-one carer living in their home with them day and night.

What are the benefits of care in Worcester?

Elder’s live-in care service means that your loved one will receive the care they need both at home and out-and-about. As well as assistance with the activities of daily living needed, the carer will be able to escort your relative around the city and further afield for social activities and visits.

Within the city itself, there are some lovely parks, and your loved one might enjoy a short walk by the tranquil river. Greyfriars House and Garden are well worth a visit, or they could enjoy the cathedral with its Victorian stained glass and Royal Tombs. There is disabled access to most parts of the building too. The Tudor House Museum makes for a fascinating trip out to see the amazing architecture, which includes a stunning Tudor ceiling.

At home the live-in carer will be able to cook the food your loved one enjoys, as well as helping with other domestic tasks such as laundry and cleaning, so you will know their needs are being met.

What our customers say

What conditions is live-in care suitable for?

We understand that care, particularly live-in care, home care or at-home care - whatever you call it, needs to be personal. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Everyone’s needs are different. Elder’s long-term live-in care plans are specifically created to take into account the needs of your loved one. Our large pool of home help carers offers a diverse range of expertise, from experience in basic companion care to an understanding of the more complex needs of dementia care.

So whatever your loved one’s live-in care needs, Elder is able to offer the same level of support of any care home in Worcester. What’s more, with live-in care your loved one is getting a much more personal experience. With a live-in carer, they’re getting more than just a carer. They’re getting a friend they can trust.

Whether your loved one has simple or complex care needs, live-in care offers a real long-term alternative to a care home throughout the city in areas such as Cherry Orchard, Northwick and other suburbs.

How does live-in care work?

Live-in care, home care - or 24 hour care works by Elder moving a carer into a spare room in your loved one’s home. They’ll be on-call around the clock, able to offer the support your loved one needs. That can be anything from basic household tasks such as taking care of the cooking, cleaning and shopping. Or more skilled tasks, such as providing your loved one with the very best dementia care in Worcester. Elder live-in carers are also able to collect prescriptions from pharmacies in the area, from local establishments such as Murrays.

With Elder, your loved one will have one primary carer. They’ll stay with them for four-week periods. Then, for two weeks live-in care will be provided by a secondary carer. The cycle will continue on a four week-to two-week rotation. We aim to minimise disruption. The primary home carer will always be the same person, unless you or your loved one wants a change.

How much live-in care in Worcester cost?

Paying for care is one of the biggest difficulties to overcome when you’re finding care for your loved one. That’s why Elder experts are on-hand to guide you through the process. We can help you unlock funding from your local authority to help you pay for live-in care. Or, understand innovative products to help you release equity from your house, such as a lifetime mortgage.

To keep paying for care simple, we have a completely transparent flat rate. Live-in care in Worcester with us costs £795 per week. That’s around a third cheaper than the price you’d expect to pay at any care home in Worcester, with more personal care and less disruption. What’s more, you don’t have to pay penny upfront. If you don’t like live-in care from Elder, you don’t have to pay with our trial week.

While our price is low, that doesn’t mean we pay Elder carers less. At Elder, we believe happy carers are better carers. Being happy in your job means getting a fair wage. All Elder live-in carers earn at least the National Living Wage. That’s probably more than can be said for any care home in Worcester. Paying a fair price also means we’re able to find the best carers, with the best experience.

How do you match live-in carers in Worcester?

We’re passionate about finding the perfect live-in carer for your loved one. To provide care that really feels like family, we use the power of technology to find a carer based on your loved one’s preferences.

That’s more than just what level of support they provide, whether they need simple home care or more complex dementia care. It’s about them. About your loved one’s personality. What they like to do. What their favourite meals are. What kind of person they get on with.

Only once we’ve built up the perfect picture of your case will we look for your loved one’s ideal home carer. A live-in carer is going to move into your loved one’s house, so you need to be completely sure they’re the right fit. Our matching process makes sure they are. Elder 24-hour care is more compassionate and personal than any care home in Worcester. There’s no matching process out there that’s as precise, or as effective.

Such is the power of our matching process, many Elder live-in carers and home care recipients end up becoming genuine, long-term friends.
