Care that keeps you connected

At Elder, we help match those seeking live-in care at home with a self-employed carer based on their individual needs and personality.

We offer a solution that’s built around the service user, promoting independence, choice and control in their care journey: 

Person-centred approach

Our person-centred service is built entirely around the needs and choices of the service user.

Better health outcomes

Live-in care has been linked to a reduction in key drivers of elderly hospital admissions.

Rapidly deployable

We can place independent carers within as little as 24 hours of the initial call, anywhere the UK.

Elder is defined by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as an Introductory Agency as we match carers with service users but do not directly employ them on our platform. Click here to learn more about Introductory Agencies.
