What is elderly care in the home?

At Cera we understand the difficulties in trying to find the most appropriate care for your elderly loved ones. Moving away from home comforts and normal daily routines can be highly stressful and uncomfortable at any age and particularly for the elderly. For some, moving to a residential home may be an attractive option however, here at Cera we understand that for most people, they would prefer to stay in their own home so that stability, routine and comfort can be maximised.

What are the options for elderly care at home?

We offer a variety of care packages for elderly people within their own home; hourly care; overnight care and live-in care are all available for elderly clients. Carers can provide a variety of services including; personal care and hygiene; domestic help; medication prompting; companionship; mobility assistance and more specialised care.

Benefits of elderly care

Consistency and stability are very important for elderly people and the maintenance of their health. By choosing Cera to provide elderly care at home for your loved ones we believe that these can be achieved. The trauma that is often experienced from moving away from one’s own home of many years can be avoided, whilst independence and normality can be maintained. Our carers can help your loved-one remain independent and active in their local community so that that they will not have to compromise on their independence and activities that they enjoy.
