You’ve reached us outside of our opening hours. Create your account to get access to My Elder, our online portal for arranging care and accessing information to support your journey to care.
At Elder, we provide high-quality and affordable live-in care for the elderly, in and around Goole, helping members of the older generation to live a happy and comfortable life in the comfort of their own homes.
Why choose in-home care?
Not everyone is happy about the idea of going into residential care when they reach a certain time of life. Many elderly people are quite naturally frightened by the thought of leaving their family home to move to a care facility. Of course, many care homes offer exemplary levels of service, but it’s not surprising that so many members of the older generation are reluctant to leave the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.
Older people have become accustomed to independent living, and many of them dread the thought of entering residential care. They fear the loss of independence and worry about losing contact with familiar faces and places in their local neighbourhood.
The opportunity to remain in their own homes brings a breath of fresh air to the idea of elderly care. Surrounded by familiar things, your loved one can benefit from dedicated one-to-one attention from a specialist caregiver, who is available to provide 24/7 care whenever and wherever it is needed.
What does a live-in carer do?
A live-in caregiver moves into your loved one’s home and offers assistance throughout the day and night. Unlike in a care home environment, where staff may be allocated to different duties each day, a resident carer in your loved one’s home can offer your elderly relative dedicated one-to-one assistance at all times.
This can range from help with getting out of bed in the morning and getting washed and dressed to support with making breakfast and ensuring that they take medication according to the doctor’s instructions. Shopping trips and outings together mean that your loved one is never lonely or confined to their home, due to lack of company or transport.
Goole is a town and civil parish known as “the port in green fields”, because of its inland location. Goole boasts a sleepy working port with a rich maritime heritage and is a haven for shoppers, artists and wildlife lovers, meaning that there are lots to keep your loved one occupied. Meanwhile, you can relax knowing that they are living life to the full.
Because the carer is always at hand, your loved one has someone available to talk to and share stories with. If they need help at any point, the carer is able and willing to assist in any way they can. After helping with undressing and bathing at the end of the day, the carer is just yards away throughout the night, so if your loved one needs help it is always available. Carers are also trained in medical emergencies, so you don’t have to lie awake worrying about whether your loved one is okay.
Many of our carers have specialised training in dementia and Alzheimer’s care, which gives you extra peace of mind. You won’t need to worry about your loved one wandering off and getting lost, or whether they have remembered to eat or have left the cooker on. You can rest assured that your carer will be patient and understanding and that they will be able to cope with the challenging behaviour that can sometimes arise from these conditions.

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.”
What if my loved one doesn’t like their carer?
People will always have likes and dislikes, and at Elder, we understand the need for a good relationship between the carer and the client. That’s why we work with you and your loved one to find the best match for your particular circumstances.
We try to place carers with similar hobbies and interests to the client, so they have things in common to talk about. In most cases, we find that strong friendships quickly form, which can make it seem less intrusive to have someone in the home.
The carer becomes a friend, helper and confidant, and our clients often report that their lives transformed for the better. Having someone to chat to and share a joke with can foster a great sense of wellbeing, something that is important for both parties.
In the unlikely event that your loved one and their assigned carer do not seem to ‘gel’, we will do our utmost to find someone more suitable straight away. We want you and your loved one to be entirely happy with our service, and we’ll go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that this is the case.
How do I access private live-in care in Goole?

We understand your worries and concerns, and we will always talk through any concerns that you might have. You may also be surprised to learn that the cost of private care packages such as Elder’s can be up to 30% cheaper than alternative care options.
