What does Elderly Care include?

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

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.
