Health Care Assistant in London, Greater London
on 9 September 2022
Transparent and smooth
Still very new, but like the management interaction. Would like to see more weekend work availability and shorter term placements.I am yet to be accepted for placement but this is down to the distance. The company do reach out to me personally to assist and I find this very encouraging.I have high hopes with Elder as I gave enjoyed experience from beginning.

Fun and hard work
Elder is a great company to work for great pay and based on self employed basic. You're in charge of choosing what location and you'll have to do your own tax return

Elder Self-Employed Live-In Care Work
Elder is a great company to work with because you are self-employed and work when you want to!The salary is one of the best i have seen for a live-in care company, the staff and management are helpful most of the time, you can get 24/7 confidential help with your mental health, you get the elder app in which you can look for clients based on your skills and experiences (the app has adjustable settings that you can tweek to look/work with clients that you feel confident with)Their down fall is their communication, which is not the best most of the time and the phone line in which you call Elder on also is not great and I usually have to keep asking them to repeat themselves because the line connection is so bad. Overall Elder is one of the best care companies i have come across.

I’m so happy to be part of Elder.
My recruiter was so great since the very beginning. She was very friendly during the interview and responsive to all my queries and didn’t let me down. I’m so happy to be part of Elder.I didn’t have to wait long to get my first placement which is good and the placement is very nice - I get on with the client well and the families are lovely and friendly. They’re also very supportive
