What is Elderly Visiting Care?

Our Elderly Care services are personalised, compassionate and help you or your loved one continue to live at home.

Life is about enjoying the little things but as we age, many of the daily activities we take for granted become harder. Elderly Care helps bridge the gap. It provides you or your loved one with as much or as little support as you need to keep doing the things you enjoy.

At Alina Homecare, we’re committed to listening to you about your needs and preferences because for us, it’s all about you.

Your home. Your care. Your choice.

What is Elderly Live-in Care?

Elderly Live-in Care provides continuous support from a dedicated Carer in the comfort and security of your own home. They move in with you or your elderly loved one. They’re there when you need them most.

If household tasks start to build or a medical diagnosis overshadows living alone, Live-in Care for elderly people can provide a helping hand.

Our Carers work to understand what matters most to you, then help you stay safe, secure and independent in your own home.

Why choose Elderly Care?

Are your elderly parents prone to falls, is Gran getting too frail to shop for herself, or is your Granddad in need of some company?

As many as 97% of elderly people aged over 65 would rather remain in their own homes if they become ill or less able to cope.1 Our wide range of services are designed to help you or your loved one achieve this by staying as independent as possible for as long as possible.

We are very flexible and work around you. Our Visiting Care means we can pop in for 30 minutes or longer or we also provide Live-in Care and 24 Hour Care at Home.

There are two key options for Elderly Care: receiving care in your own home or moving into a residential facility. There are advantages to both and sometimes moving into a care home is a necessary choice if specialist nursing care is needed. However, many of our clients choose to receive Elderly Care in their own homes.

Personalised

Unlike most residential care, Elderly Care is fully focused on supporting you alone. With Live-in Care, one to one support is round the clock.

Cost Effective

You choose as much or as little care to suit any budget. If couples need care, sharing an elderly Carer can be more cost effective.

Improve Hygiene

Elderly Care ensures you or your loved one is safe, clean and comfortable. This reduces risk of infection and also can improve mental health.

Independence

Stay in familiar surroundings in your home. Make big and small decisions about daily life. Family and friends can visit whenever you choose.

Stay Local

Local events. Familiar faces. Community is vital to everyday life for many people. Unlike residential care, you or your loved one stay in your area.

Peace of Mind

It can be worrying if your loved one can’t perform certain tasks. We provide peace of mind, especially with Birdie, our care monitoring app.

Maintain Routine

Time to get up! Eating regularly. Lots of tea! Elderly Care helps maintain a healthy and reassuring routine.

Preserve Dignity

Elderly Care services relieve pressure on loved ones performing intimate tasks. Trained Care Workers deliver care with dignity.

Stay Together

Staying together is important for couples. Unlike residential care, Elderly Care means you stay in your home and receive independent care together.

Keep Pets

Most care facilities don’t allow pets. With Elderly Care, stay close to your furry or feathered friends. Carers help with pet tasks.

Enjoy Company

Living alone can be challenging but unfamiliar faces in a care home can be unsettling. Elder Care provides privacy and companionship.

How can Elderly Care help?

Whatever you need, whenever you need it, we can help. Our Elderly Care services can include:

Daily hygiene

From bathing and toileting to getting dressed and applying lotions we help you maintain hygiene and routines with dignity and respect.

Personalised Care

At Alina Homecare, our Personalised Care is unique to each client. Elderly Care is flexible when circumstances change and always delivered with compassion, dignity and respect.

Does your elderly loved one need help?

Deciding you or your loved one needs Home Care can be difficult. It may feel uncomfortable to talk about personal and intimate topics with family or friends. It may also be challenging to trust someone with intimate tasks if you or they require Personal Care services.

Choosing our professional Elderly Home Care service can help. Using our Carers reduces or eliminates the need for close family and friends to perform intimate tasks for loved ones. They can also help bridge the gap if you live far from family or are otherwise unable to provide as much support as your loved one requires.

Of course, it can even be a challenge to recognise a loved one needs elderly help at home. There are some questions you can ask to assess their situation:

Are they struggling to maintain routines, like bathing or oral hygiene?

Our Elderly Carers support daily routines so life can continue the way you like. We help with anything from errands like housework to assistance using the bathroom, hoisting, or shopping.

Does your loved one have a condition that requires additional support?

Our Elderly Carers are trained to support complex health needs including for conditions like dementia, Parkinson’s and more.

Is your loved one reluctant to go into a care home?

Home care for the elderly is a popular alternative to residential care. This is because it can be cost effective and allows you or your loved to remain in the home you love.

Is your loved one lonely or isolated?

Our Carers aren’t just professional, they’re also friendly! We can spend time with you or your elderly loved one for valuable companionship and a listening ear.

Does your loved one have mobility issues?

Our Teams help with getting out and about, whether it be out in the local community or getting into and out of bed. Our Carers can also support with getting to, from and assistance with using the bathroom.

Paying for Elderly Care

The cost of Elderly Care at Home varies according to your needs. Prices will also depend on what kind of elderly support you choose: Visiting Care for elderly people, Live-in Care or both. Our services are competitively priced and provide excellent value for the high quality care our trained Carers deliver.

Our Team works with you to find a personalised care plan that suits your requirements, routine and budget.

Quick questions

About our Elderly Care service

What is Elderly Care at Home?

Elderly Care is personalised support that enables you to stay at home for longer. Sometimes we need a little more support than usual – and elderly home help is a way of receiving assistance where you feel most comfortable. Whether it’s help with household tasks, medication reminders, getting ready for the day or assistance after an accident, our Teams can help in making life easier.

Why is Elderly Care important?

Our home help for the elderly provides dedicated support for physical and mental needs of older people. We offer shorter term assistance for conditions and recovery from injury, illness and hospital stays as well as regular respite to give a primary caregiver a break, or longer term help around the home. Elderly Care is always bespoke and personalised to each client. Our friendly Carers can help with daily household tasks like the laundry or vacuuming or maintaining a routine for meals and medication.

How does Elderly Care work?
Our elderly assistance at home is flexible and tailored to you or your loved one’s specific needs. We work together to agree a care plan with as much care as you need and including the support you need. For some people, this might be companionship and help with daily housekeeping tasks. For others, this could mean more specialists help like hoisting, or even continuous 24 Hour Home Care and Live-in Care.

What is the difference between Elderly Home Care and Elderly Live-in Care?
The main difference is that Elderly Home Care involves a Carer visiting you at agreed times and these visits can be as little as 30 minutes. On the other hand, Live-in Care for the elderly involves your Carer moving in with you full time. Either way, you’ll receive quality care in the comfort of your home. With Live-in Care, enjoy continuous support and reassurance that there’s always someone in the home if you need any help. There are lots of types of Home Care available, from Companionship Care to Personal Care and more specialist support services for conditions such as dementia and strokes. If you need help overnight, you could opt for a Live-in Carer or choose between our Waking Nights or Sleeping service.

What’s included?
Our Elderly Care services can be whatever you want and need them to be! Our range of services include Personal Care, Domestic Care, Companion Care, Palliative Care and Respite Care. We also offer Live-in Care and Overnight Care if a night service is what you need.

About Elderly Care costs

How much does an Elderly Carer cost per hour?

Home Care costs vary depending on many factors, including the type of care needed, how often it’s needed and where you or your elderly loved one live. Most of our Elderly Care services are charged on an hourly or part hourly basis to ensure care remains fully flexible and changeable to suit your needs. However, if Overnight Care or Live-in Care is required, costs are charged at a fixed rate. To learn more, contact your local Alina Homecare Team for a more comprehensive cost assessment.

Does the cost of Elderly Care at Home vary by location?

Yes, the cost of Elderly Care varies according to where you live, the type of care you need and how often you need it. Learn more about the cost of home help for the elderly in your area by contacting your local Alina Homecare Team. You can also request a quote online.

Do I have to pay for my Elderly Carers?

Most of our clients pay for their care privately, but you may be eligible for government support if you meet certain criteria. You can arrange to have a financial assessment from your local authority to determine if you’re eligible for help towards your care costs and whether they will provide this.

About Elderly Care for you

When should I consider Elderly Care at Home?
Everyone is unique! Discussing and preparing for care can be challenging, especially if your elderly loved one isn’t sure they need care yet. We can help in any circumstance. You or your loved one may be feeling overwhelmed, there could be an emergency, your main caregiver may be away, or you may simply like some company. We tailor our Elderly Care to suit each person’s individual needs, so you can receive as much or as little help as necessary.

Is it suitable if I need specialist Elderly Care?
Absolutely. We can include more specialist services for conditions like Parkinson’s, dementia, cancer, Multiple Sclerosis and more. If necessary, we can also arrange for a second Care Worker to help during your visit if you have more complex needs.

At what age is someone considered elderly?
Someone is generally considered elderly when they are above 65 years of age. We understand that everyone is different and people aged 65 and over each have a wide range of abilities and health concerns. Regardless of age, we’re ready to make life easier.

Where can I read reviews?
You can hear first hand from many of our clients on our homecare.co.uk profile as well as Google Business. We’re proudly recommended by 97% of our clients!

How do I get home help for my elderly loved one?
We’re just a phone call or email away! Shortly after contacting us, your nearest Alina Homecare Team will be in touch to better understand your needs and learn how we can help. After a free no obligation visit in your home, the Team will create a detailed and tailored care plan for you and discuss costs. With your agreement, the care delivery can begin.

What kind of Elderly Care should I consider?
Elderly Home Care is great for those who wish to remain in the comfort of their home but need extra support. Moving into a residential care facility can be daunting and many prefer to remain in a familiar environment surrounded by special memories. Elderly Home Care also provides personalised support that’s conducted in a manner to suit your needs and preferences. Unfortunately, care homes can’t provide the same level of dedicated and personalised care. In a care home, staff attention is shared between multiple residents. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and what you think would work best for you. Read our guide comparing Home Care with care homes.

How quickly can Elderly Care be arranged?
We operate a responsive service. We work wherever possible to your timings and work very hard to ensure your care is in place when it’s needed. In most instances, we’re able to install care within 48 hours of initial contact, sometimes sooner if required. If you need Emergency Care, please contact your local Alina Homecare Team.
