elderly care


Virtus care provide dedicated support for elderly individuals or couples who wish to remain in the comfort of their own home. Some of the services we provide may include;

housekeeping services

cooking meals and grocery shopping

personal care and companionship

support with complex issues such as dementia or mobility support

Medication management

The type of elderly care we provide can include live-in care, where specially selected carers will provide around the clock support for the individuals in their own home, overnight care to give the reassurance and support that comes with having somebody always there to assist and care for you or your loved one, or flexible regular home visits during the day or night – scheduled completely around your requirements.

How do we Care for an elderly person in their own home?

Virtus Care believe independence is of the utmost importance when supporting an older individual in their own home. It is our ethos to support you or your loved ones in whatever lifestyle you want, rather than taking over. Our trained care workers are experts in enabling and assisting you in your daily routines and assist you in your day to day lifestyle.

We carefully match our carers to you to make sure you are both comfortable and happy with your carer, who is carefully selected to be unobtrusive, but also friendly and outgoing. This allows them to provide you with emotional support, but also be a friendly and trusted companion. An example of one task our carer will do is help maintain your home, and remove any trip hazards to reduce the risk of falls, as well as provide peace of mind that if anything were to happen they would be there to assist you professionally.


Why you may need elderly care services

Not everyone is able to provide their loved ones with the time, support and expertise needed to be a caregiver, especially in today’s world where work and responsibilities leave you very little time to care for both yourself and family members. Therefore, Virtus Care make sure we provide excellent care services, so you can prioritize doing the things you love with your loved ones, while we provide the support and handle the essentials.

Q&A



What age is considered elderly?

The most common age the word ‘elderly’ refers to in the UK is the age of 65 or over. However, Virtus Care extends all our services to all ages.

Why is elderly care so important?

Often as people age we can develop medical conditions which leave us vulnerable and less capable of doing things we once could,unfortunately this can’t be prevented, however in society today we can provide the care and support to each other to ensure those common health conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s and loss of mobility are addressed and our carers do their best to allow you to keep the same quality of life despite those health concerns.

How does the process of getting a carer work?

When we assign an elderly carer, we make sure to match carers who will become your friend over time, we do this by taking a note of your hobbies and interests. This is why we have an excellent reputation within our local community.

How much does Elderly care cost?

The prices for all our Care services are very dependent on the care needs for each unique individual, so please get in touch so we can speak and create a tailored price for your individual circumstances. We are very clear about all prices when you contact us and can even give you more information about funding options that may be available to you through your local authority or continuing healthcare (CHC) funding.

My Carer with Virtus was a live-in carer, she provided me with everything I needed to be comfortable in my own home, since I am now immobile, the carer helped me with all of my household tasks and even helped me look after my pet. She was always happy and I’m glad to say I see her now as family rather than just a care assistant.
