What is elderly care?

Elderly care, also known as ‘senior care’, involves dedicated support to older adults who wish to remain in the familiarity of their home. You may already have a loved one that offers you support and are now looking into a more manageable solution that is of best interest to both you and your loved one. There are a range of services for older adults that you can choose from that will be determined once a home care assessment is complete.

When organising care for seniors, a care plan is put into place by a care manager that is highly personalised to your needs. All our carers have previous experience and attend an in-house five-day induction course where they are trained on various subjects and health conditions to ensure that an exceptional service is provided. Our goal is for you to live your older years safely and happily from home, which is why we match our carers to you based on your needs, personality and lifestyle.

Overall, senior care offers an array of different types of support; so whether you need companionship care, respite care, or support with a more complex condition such as dementia or Parkinson’s, we are here to help you to live life on your terms.

Why may I need elderly care?

There are many reasons why people seek for senior care:

Personalised care

Receiving personalised care tailored specifically to your needs, delivered directly in your own home, is increasingly becoming the favoured option for many. This one-to-one approach establishes trusted, lasting relationships.

dementia Live life on your terms

In comparison to residential care, you have the flexibility to live your life how you please. You or your loved one can express your best wishes to your carer and we will ensure to include this in the care plan so that you can make your own decisions about your routine and what you do in your day.

Specialised care

You could be in the position where you require specialised care due to a recent diagnosis, including Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. Cherished Home Care has carers that are highly experienced and trained in these areas to ensure an exceptional service is delivered for individuals with these conditions.

Peace of mind

Care for older adults offers families support and peace of mind, as you may currently have a family caregiver that is unable to provide you with around-the-clock care due to other commitments. With quality care available precisely when needed, you can rest assured knowing your loved one is in capable hands.

Over 66% of people said they would prefer to stay in their own home.

Respite Care

Temporary care for you

Respite care is a short-term care solution that will support you with day-to-day responsibilities and personal care from the comfort of your own home. This form of care is a popular option to give family caregivers a break to rest and recharge or if you have recently been discharged from hospital and need assistance with your recovery.

Costs of elderly care

When considering care, we understand that a lot of thought needs to go into this and can be a stressful process. Depending on the option that best suits you, it is important to bear in mind that the cost for residential care can be up to £2,500 per week and appears to be more expensive than live-in care. An added benefit of home care is that you get to remain at home, surrounded by your belongings and loved ones.

Cherished Home Care hourly services are charged on an hourly basis starting from £29 per hour. Our live-in care services are charged on a weekly basis, with costs starting from £1,095 per week. A detailed estimate of the price will be determined once you receive your free care assessment conducted by your local care manager.

For couples, live-in care has proven to be the financially wiser choice than care homes and in some cases domiciliary care. This is because a small additional fee is added for the other individual, instead of paying for two rooms in a residential care setting.
