Here’s just one great review of our elderly care services:

"The quality of care provided by both the manager & Carer is excellent, I can’t fault it. My elderly mother sees her Carer as a friend & enjoys chatting with her. The Carer balances ensuring my mum’s wellbeing by helping her take her medicines, exercise, washing & plaiting her hair and some general household chores, but also stimulating her memory & conversation. This makes her feel valued & looked after. The Carer is warm & caring and having her over while I’m working has really taken a burden off my mind."

Why is elderly care important? 

Needing a little help is an inevitable part of getting older. Regardless of healthcare needs or specialist requirements, the structure of our lives change as we reach old age. Elderly care enables people to continue living as they choose, and where they choose, with extra support as and when they need it.

DID YOU KNOW? There are 130,000 people aged over 85 in London, and that is expected to increase to 180,000 by 2024, which is a 38% increase in 10 years London's population, like that of the rest of the UK, is getting older. The ageing population also means there will be an increase in demand for care. 

By offering homecare for elderly people in their own home, we enable our Clients to maintain dignity and independence in familiar surroundings. Elder care is important for many, as a way of completing practical, day-to-day activities safely. For many older people across Mitcham, Streatham & Dulwich, it is often vital for combating loneliness.

For Clients with dementia, elderly care at home is vital for providing a calm, reassuring and familiar structure. For others, elder care offers comfort, knowing that there’s always someone you can rely on.
