I would really love to get back into caring for the elderly again and would be willing to do any training necessary. For a short while I worked as a home help and did the relevant training but had to give up as I became a carer for my mother.

I honestly don't know where to start, words cannot describe how amazing this lady is and how thankful my family and I are. Ann had worked as my father’s primary caregiver for about a year. Looking after my father, who has advanced metastatic cancer and severe depression, was challenging, but Ann handled it dedicatedly and professionally. Ann is compassionate by nature and always positive about things. As someone who has a great devotion to logic and an eye for detail, she has the capacity to remain calm and think logically, even during severely distressing times. During the time Ann spent working with my father, she provided him with much-needed companionship and conversation, medication support and also worked as his nutritionist at home and his interpreter (Russian-English) during his medical appointments. I genuinely believe that because of her eagerness to help, she made my father's life more comfortable than it would have been otherwise."

FAQs for finding elderly care

What are my elderly care options?

When it comes to creating a care plan for an elder loved one, there are different alternatives to explore depending on the wishes of the senior and their family, and the level of care needed. Some of the options are:

  • In-home elderly care is a great option for seniors who want to stay at home and just need a companion for daily activities.
  • Nursing assistants can provide medical assistance for seniors in the comfort of their own home.
  • Dementia care is a suitable choice for elders with Alzheimer's or dementia who need specialised care at home.
  • Senior transportation is an option for finding caregivers who can drive your loved ones as needed for errands or doctor appointments.
  • How much does in-home elderly care cost in 2024?

    The average elderly care rate charged by caregivers on Care.com as of July, 2024 is £13.86 per hour. This rate may vary depending on the services that you require from the senior caregiver while caring for your loved one. The hourly rate will also be impacted by your location, the caregiver's years of experience, level of education, and if they have any credentials or nursing degrees.

    What services are included for elderly care at home?

    Besides companionship, most in-home caregivers for seniors can help with their daily activities, such as getting around the house safely, meal prep, light housekeeping, and medication reminders, as well as taking them for walks and driving them to medical appointments or errands. In addition to general home help for seniors, there are also caregivers who can assist with bathing, dressing, feeding, overnight watch, and dementia care.

    How can I find an in-home elderly care provider?

    After creating an account, you will have the option to either post a job that can be seen by our large pool of caregivers, or you can also search caregivers from our platform, based on years of experience, hourly rate, availability, distance from your location, etc. After you have selected your candidates, you can schedule interviews, check references, and hire the caregiver who best meets your needs.
