Elder Provides a Care Home Alternative in Shrewsbury

Elder, the UK’s leading live-in care provider, provides families with an alternative solution to the traditional care home. No matter where an elderly relative is in the country, Elder can provide a live-in carer who will match an elderly relative’s personality, so they feel comfortable receiving care in the comfort of their own home.

The care of an elderly relative is bound to be a primary concern, so it could be a relief to learn that a carer could be at the door within 24 hours. You can therefore go to work, visit other family members and get on with your daily routine, safe in the knowledge your loved one is receiving the highest quality of care at home.

So, there is no need to discuss moving a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle into a care home, because they can remain in their familiar surroundings, supported by highly-trained staff who strive to deliver the highest standard in elderly care every single day.

Whether your loved one is living with dementia or simply needs help to perform daily tasks, an experienced carer can live within the property, ensuring they can care for their every need, from light housework and the preparation of meals to helping a loved one get dressed, bathe and maintain their personal hygiene. Due to the kindness and compassion of each carer, you will have peace of mind knowing your family member will always maintain their independence, pride and dignity.

In addition to receiving the highest standard in elderly care twenty-four hours a day, your loved one may form a companionship with a carer, as they are matched on their mutual interests, which will prevent a relative from feeling alone.  A fixed weekly home care fee may also provide an affordable, more suitable solution in comparison to a care home. The carer will live in the home, and could work on rotation with another carer, so they will receive physical, emotional and mental support every day.

In addition to providing live-in care, a carer can take your loved one on a walk and they could become involved in various community events to stimulate their mind and body. The carer will also remind care recipients to take their prescribed medication, and can arrange medical appointments on their behalf.

While you will always worry about an elderly relative or friend, an experienced live-in carer can help take away some of the stress and concern you might have, because they can provide the elderly care, companionship and light exercise a person needs to live a happier, healthier life in the comfort of their own home.

So, there is no longer a reason to move a person from the home they have known for years, because an alternative solution could be just a phone call away.
