Live in Care
A home retains many memories, whether it is memories of children and loved ones or any other of the many things that make your home a relaxing or happy place for you. The thought of leaving your home can be worrying, especially with the myth that the only viable option when faced with reduced indecencies is moving a residential or nursing home.
This is why Elderly Care Service aims to help keep your independence by providing a live in care service. A support worker can move in with you to provide a completely tailored live in care service, supporting you completely to remain independent right in the comfort of your own home. This will afford your family and friends peace of mind, knowing that you are in expert hands, being cared for in the place where you are most comfortable.
A great advantage over a care home where so many other residents must be considered, live in care is completely one-to-one and completely bespoke to your individual needs. Live-in care service is flexible to accommodate your regular routine and specific needs, as well as being able to adapt to your changing circumstances.
Having someone else living in your home can be a very personal matter. This is why we will take extra care in matching our staff with your personality and situation as well as your support needs. We also ensure that all of our live-in care staff are fully aware of your expectation and personal preferences.
Aids & Adaptations - Specialist Home Services for the Disabled and the Elderly
Loss of mobility and balance can make it difficult to shower, wash and bathe or to use the toilet. However, there's a range of equipment and adaptations that may help such as:
- a battery powered bath lift with a seat or platform that can be lowered to support your weight as you get into the bath and raised to help you get out
- a bath with a side opening so you can get in and out without having to climb over the side
- a 'wet room' or level-access shower
- a wall-mounted sink set at the right height for someone who is using a wheelchair or a mobile shower seat
- a special safety plug that only allows water to reach a certain level
- a flood detector that alerts a monitoring centre (Telecare) if the bath or sink starts to overflow
- a 'hands-free' toilet with an automatic washing and drying function while you are still seated.
A Walk-in shower (or level access shower) is essentially the same as a Wet room. The term Walk-in shower simply refers to the point that there is no step up, or step into the shower as is normally found with a white plastic shower tray for example. You simply 'walk in' to the showering area.
Modern technology and waterproofing now mean that Level access walk-in showers can be installed in most homes without fear of leakage if care is taken and instructions are followed.
A walk-in shower is easy to clean and maintain and can really enhance the look of any bathroom.
Walk-in showers are extremely popular with people who suffer from mobility issues as no step up is required, thus making access much easier and reducing the risk of a slip.
At Elderly Care Service Ltd, we specialise in the design, supply, installation and refurbishment of a number of Walk-in showers suitable for wooden or concrete floors to create level access Walk-in showers. This also includes all aspects of construction, plumbing, precision tiling, lighting and air extraction, all within your budget.
Night Sitting Service and Night Support
At Elderly Care Service we provide a private personal night sitting service customised to your needs. We offer two levels of night support services: Waking Night and Sleeping Night; by so doing you can be assured that the night time hours for you or your loved one passes with comfort and confidence.
Our private night sitting service can be provided on long or short term basis and can be at intervals to suit you. So, whether your family or carer would benefit from some respite, or you are recovering from a period of illness, or just require short term holiday cover we can adopt our service to suit you.
Sleeping Night Support
Our Sleeping Night Service has been designed to promote confidence and independence for those who do not require intense support through the night. Your sleeping night support worker will retire to an allocated bedroom once you are settled in bed and be on hand should you require them at any time. Our sleeping night service is based on up to three support worker disturbances per night sitting period. Should you require more assistance we would recommend our Waking Night Service.
Waking Night Support
Our Waking Night Service is geared to those who require increased attention through the night. Your Support Worker will be awake and alert at all times and on hand to assist with all your support needs. Waking night support workers do not require sleeping provision and can stay in the same room or close proximity to you.
Social Companionship / Befriending Service
Understandably, you would prefer to stay in your own home. It is where you feel relaxed, happy and comfortable. However, as family members grow older and move out into their own homes, your house may not be as busy as it once was, and you don't have so many people on hand for extra help when you need it.
Social companionship from Elderly Care Service helps by giving you the support you need to stay independent, giving you the help of a support worker at times to suit your convenience.
Social Companionship is most suited to individuals who can benefit from having the reassurance that someone is there to help when they need it. It also gives family members peace of mind where they are unable to regularly visit, since they know that someone is there to support their loved one.
Our support workers, who are selected in consideration of your personality and requirements, will be there for company and conversation, as well as providing help with household and social activities. Our service is tailored to the requirements you provide and will be adapted to your changing needs. To make sure that you are happy, we will arrange for you to meet your support worker before your support service starts to make sure you are happy.
What does the Social Companionship service include?
At the core of our Social Companionship service, your support worker will be there to spend time with you. Do you like sitting and chatting, looking at old family photos, watching television or going for short walks? Our support workers will be there to provide you with company and reassurance. Having someone to sit and chat with may be exactly what you need to brighten your day.
Where your independence is reduce, your support worker can help with light housekeeping tasks, which can include dusting, washing, ironing, vacuuming, and changing bed linen. They can also help with preparing meals, considering your preferences and when you want to eat. They can also help with your weekly shop.
If you have difficulty keeping track of what need to be done and when, our support workers can help you with daily routines. They can remind you to do the things you need to such as take your medications, feed the dog, go to the doctors, write birthday cards and other things to help you stay independent.
Where possible, our support worker will encourage you to engage in social activities. That can be to attend a local club or meet with your friends for a chat and a cuppa. Our support worker will be there with the support you need whenever needed.
As well as short outings day-to-day, your support worker can accompany you on day trips, which will provide you and your family with piece of mind, knowing that you are getting the personal attention you need while out and about.
No matter where your trip will take you, your support worker will help you when you are away from home. They can also help with arranging travel and transport for mobility equipment, if you require it.

Specialist Care - Dementia Care
Dementia doesn't have to stop you living at home.
Elderly Care Service is committed to helping people affected by dementia live happily, safely and securely in their own home. Currently there are over 750,000 people in the UK diagnosed with dementia. It is estimated that by 2025 this figure will have increased to over 1 million.
The disease does not exclusively affect the elderly. At present, there are over 16,000 young people affected by the disease in the UK.
The disease can often be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are commonly associated with a wide variety of alternative conditions.
If you are worried that someone close to you may be suffering from dementia, keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
- lapses in memory and trouble finding the right words.
- forgetting the way home from the shops, or being unable to remember names and places
- unusual mood changes
- problems with communication i.e. reading writing and talking
If you are at all worried for yourself or a relative, make an appointment with a GP, who will perform some very simple tests, often involving a simple conversation, to make a diagnosis.
If you have been diagnosed with dementia or are a relative of someone who has, it has probably come as a shock; despite how prepared you felt you were. You probably have an awful lot of questions that you'd like answers too.
At Elderly Care Service we have a specially trained team of dementia support workers, who have a wealth of experience and knowledge between them. We can answer all your questions and provide you with the comfort that you are not tackling this alone.
One of the first questions we get asked is 'can I continue living at home?
Studies have shown that those affected by dementia can benefit greatly from the familiarity associated with living in their own home. We have found that this is certainly the case with our client and our carers prioritise ensuring you or your loved one is able to do this safely, for as long as possible.
Carefully managed and with the right support, there is no reason why a dementia sufferer cannot maintain independence and quality of life at home for years to come.
People often forget the impact of dementia on the family of a sufferer. If you have had a relative diagnosed with dementia it can seem overwhelming. There is so much to learn and so much to think about that you have never had to consider before. You can often feel lost. Our specialist dementia care revolves around creating and maintaining a familiar routine and environment for dementia sufferers, within their own homes. We carefully match our support workers to our clients based on a variety of criteria, including common interests and the type of support required. This ensures they receive the necessary support but more than that, gain a trusted companion who can be relied upon to take care of everything they are unable to.
Holiday Care when you are away
Unwind and take life as it comes, perhaps venture out and about to explore the many attractions of the local area and spend a lazy day at the beach.
Everyone deserves a holiday; holidays are a time to renew and refresh, as well as spend time with friends and family. Limited mobility should not deprive you of a wonderful and fulfilling holiday.
A break or a holiday, or a simple day trip is important to our lives, giving us something to look forward to, time to enjoy our families, a chance for adventure, or perhaps some time to recover and acquire memories of happy times.
Our holiday care service allows you the flexibility to take your support worker with you, wherever you go, in the UK or abroad for work or pleasure.
