Elderly Care

There is no place like home and Guardian Carers enables you to continue living the life you love in the home you love.

Why could Elderly Care be an option for me?

Elderly Care provides a helping hand around the home and within your daily life so you are able to live as independently as possible and remain in your home for as long as possible. Elderly Care is completely customisable to you, your needs and your schedule. Elderly home care is available as a live in or live out option and on a full time or part time basis, depending on what sort of assistance it is you are looking for. Elderly home care is there to ensure your life continues to run as smoothly as possible by providing a helping hand where you need it most. From helping with housework, organising social events and taking you to you doctors appointments, elderly home care ensures you stay in your beloved home for as long as possible.

Our private carers for the elderly are the very best at what they do. They are friendly, enthusiastic and highly trained to help our clients continue to live independently in the comfort and security of their own home for as long as possible. Dealing with an illness or change in lifestyle can be very challenging, and we truly believe there's no place like home when recovering or going through changes that come as we age.

While our carers are able to help with a range of duties, the focus tends to be on your health and wellbeing. So while they will help with household chores their main duties will include things like medication management, assisting with physiotherapy exercises, taking you to appointments and liaising with doctors, mobility support, grooming and personal care. Our elderly carers may be a friendly face to run errands with, but they are also a source of emotional support through the tougher times so no matter what you’re going through, you’ll have someone standing by your side.

If you have more complex care needs, such as Alzheimer’s, familiar surroundings will be of great benefit, so staying in your home for as long as possible is a necessity. Elderly carers are able to provide you or your loved one with specialised care as many private carers for the elderly have been specially trained and will have a deeper understanding of the issues involved and will support you or your loved one through the condition.

What does Elderly Care include?

Elderly care is perfect for those who are looking for a helping hand at home and within their day to day life and who are not quite ready to move into a retirement residence. Help for the elderly living at home is completely flexible to mould around your needs and your schedule, so if you are looking for someone to pop in once a week to take you to an appointment or someone to live in with you full time, our elderly carers are here to help. The added support around your day to day life will mean you are able to live as independently as possible, without feeling like a burden on your loved ones to get essential tasks done and remain in your home and community for as long as possible.

Personalised care in your home

Private carers for the elderly provide personalised, one on one care in the environment you feel most comfortable, your home. Moulding and evolving to your needs, an elderly carer ensures your needs are being met and you remain independent within your community. Available to you on both live in or live out arrangements as well as either full time or part time means that no matter what you’re looking for, what you need assistance with, there is an elderly carer for you. Your focus can be directed to the aspects of your life that are important to you, whether that's your loved ones or a social cause you believe in.

Your elderly carer can assist you with almost everything such as:

  • laundry and ironing
  • preparing your favourite meals
  • Liaising with doctors
  • Gardening
  • Ensuring your home is kept clean and tidy to your standards
  • taking pets on walks
  • personal care
  • mobility support
  • helping with the hoovering
  • changing bed linen
  • organising activities
  • helping with a hobby
  • Changing bed linen

Ensuring your security for your peace of mind

Home care for the elderly in their home gives your loved ones the added peace of mind that you are in safe, capable and experienced hands. Having an extra able-bodied adult within the home adds another level of security. Home help for the elderly assures that there is someone on hand if you should have a fall at any point of the day or night and it also deters any uninvited visitors. Ensuring you feel safe and secure within your own home is a core aspect of elderly home care.

Expert and specialised care

Private carers for the elderly is an excellent option for you if you are dealing with more serious health issues such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. Elderly carers are specially trained and have hands on experience in these areas and have a deeper understanding of ways in which you can manage them. They will also be more experienced that your loved ones may be in dealing with more challenging situations that might arise. They are also able to guide you through the changes that happen within yourself, provide you with reassurance and an understanding shoulder to lean on.
