Elder live-in care plans cater for simple to complex needs. It means you only pay for the support your family needs. Discover what’s included in our three main plans:

Our live-in care plans are all about putting your family in control. We understand care can feel expensive. But our plans makes live-in care as affordable as possible by ensuring your family only pays for the support you actually need.

With every plan, we’ll –

  • Match you with a trusted, quality carer
  • Get care in place quickly if your needs are urgent
  • Provide you with your own dedicated Family Support Specialist to provide on-going help and guidance
  • Ensure you only ever pay for the care you need – with no hidden charges, or extra costs on bank holidays
  • Give you access to your own MyElder online account where you can manage your care, review carer information, and find useful resources

We’ll always respect your needs and preferences when matching you with a carer. For example, if you need someone that can walk your dog, or cook for specific dietary requirements – we’ll work hard to find a carer with the right skills, and make a match you can feel good about.

Do you know about direct payments?

If you’re entitled to funding from the NHS or your local authority, you’re usually able to get this paid directly to you. A direct payment gives you a lot more control over the type of care you want – ideal if you’re considering live-in care.

  • Household tasks and maintenance
  • More extensive personal care
  • Up to two nightly wake-ups
  • Hoisting – provided it can be done by one person
