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 2022?

    The average elderly care rate charged by caregivers on Care.com as of June, 2022 is £10.56 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.
