Here’s just one great review of our elderly care services:
“From the very beginning, Right at Home was very proactive and professional in answering my questions, allaying my concerns, asking all the right questions about my aunt’s requirements and making an accurate assessment of her needs. The manager chose a perfect CareGiver for my aunt and the hand-over was smooth and efficient. We were present for the first two days to facilitate the hand-over, which went well. We were able to leave my aunt in very good hands. Since then, we have been impressed with the care my aunt has received and she is very happy.”

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 has been a 27 per cent increase of older people living in North Yorkshire since 2005 – amounting to an increase of 30,000 older people. This percent is continuing to increase meaning there will also 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 Ilkley, Keighley & Skipton, 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.
