Cover for a primary carer – We’re here for you

When a primary carer takes a break, we’ll connect you to a live-in carer you can trust to care the way they would.

At Elder, we’ll take every step to ensure any respite carer coming into your or your loved one’s home gives you the same peace of mind, and supports the same way a main carer would – whether they’re there for just a few days, or a few weeks.

Every short-term carer we work with undergoes thorough checks – from their background, right through to their character, to ensure they can provide the quality care and companionship you’d expect.

If you’d like to find out more about arranging short-term live-in care, give us a call on 0333 920 3648

How does it work?

It takes a lot to put your loved one – or yourself – in the care of someone new, we get that. It’s why we’ll always take your lead to arrange care you’re comfortable with.

  1. Getting to know you – Give our care specialists a call – they’ll learn as much as they can about your situation, and work out an arrangement that best supports your needs.
  2. Finding the right carer – We believe every family deserves the right carer, every-time. We’ll connect you to a skilled, fully vetted carer who’s not only a safe pair of hands, but a friendly face too.
  3. Providing peace of mind – On your carer’s first day, they’ll set aside plenty of time to get to know you, your family, and how things are done. If you’re a family member and would like regular updates from your carer, we’ll do this in a way that works for you too.

Need care quickly?

Life can be unpredictable. We can connect you to an experienced carer in just 24 hours if your needs are urgent.

We know that receiving care from someone you’re familiar with is important. So, we’ll always try to connect you to the same carer when you make multiple bookings, depending on their availability – speak to our team to find out more.
