Social care staffing is in crisis. Let’s work together to change it.
Here at Elder, we recognise the significant challenges currently facing the adult social care sector. Both public sector organisations and private care providers are being pushed to do more with less, resulting in increases in delayed transfers of care.
- 165,000+ unfilled adult social care roles in the UK as of March 2022. This is up 55,000 on the year before.
- 50% of hospital beds could be occupied by patients with Covid and flu this winter according to NHS England – putting additional pressure on discharge teams and care providers
Elder provides access to a range of care solutions to help older people receive quality, person-centered care.
Powered by a consistent, high quality carer supply, personal approach, and unique technology platform, we work with public sector organisations and care providers to co-create staffing solutions befitting of local needs and issues.

Contact our team
“The Isle of Wight Council have worked closely with Elder over the last couple of years and we have developed a very positive relationship. Elder have worked with us to identify our requirements and have regularly supported us by the provision of care workers who have worked flexibly to meet our challenges. The people working with us from Elder delivering direct care in peoples own homes and providing support in care homes have received positive feedback for their commitment and diligent work.
Elders care workers have aided our independent providers and also our own internal services, to not only maintain but also increase their capacity. This has enabled them to open beds and ensure the delivery of home care, which has supported hospital discharges and the flow within the system as a whole.”
