Adult & Eldercare Search
Currently 1 in 7 employees in the UK combine work with caring for a dependent, whether elderly or disabled. 90% of these employees are aged 30 plus, a prime time in their working lives*
Combining work+family can be difficult at the best of times, but for people who realise they need to find a care solution for an aging parent or close relative, life can be especially tough.
Why are eldercare solutions so important?
Negotiating the emotional, legal and financial minefields of finding a care solution can be really disruptive to both work and family life. With the right care support, successfully combining work and family can be a reality.
How can Adult & Eldercare Search help?
Employees will have a local expert to turn to when they need to find an adult or eldercare solution, or have any dependent care related questions. Our Care Search consultants are available to listen, advise and assist in finding practical care solutions.
Key stages of Adult & Eldercare Search
Identifying a dependent care need
The employee calls My Family Care, and a consultant appropriate to their needs and location is assigned.
One to one discussion
Our consultant will discuss the family's circumstances, budgets and preferences. They'll listen, advise and help the employee work out the most suitable options.
Our consultant researches available care solutions and creates an individually tailored care plan.
Making it happen
This can include suitable care home research and information, interviewing home carers, support on claiming benefits and arranging home adaptations... Our consultants do everything and anything needed to put the right care solution in place.
The employee will be given on-going support once the Adult & Eldercare Search is complete, ensuring their care solution is working.
How will it suit my company's needs and budgets?
Adult & Eldercare Search can be adapted to suit the needs of your company. Different levels of care support is available depending on the needs of the company, its employees and of course, available budget.

Supporting retention + employers of choice
From client's employee feedback, we know it's a highly valued benefit. It provides a practical solution and peace of mind for working carers who feel less stressed and more valued by their employer.
Retaining talented individuals
When employees reach an age when finding care solutions for dependent relatives is necessary, most often elderly parents, they're likely to be a highly experienced and valuable resource. Supporting them with practical help goes along way to ensure their retention.
Creating engaged and productive employees
Finding the right care for dependents is one of the most stressful challenges to be faced. When employees know that trusted care that fits around their work and family is in place, they're more likely to be focused and stress-free at work.
Supporting relocating employees
The family relocation process can be a complicated one, especially if it involves making decisions about care for an adult relative, either in their new location or the place that they're relocating from. Providing Adult & Eldercare Search enables solutions to be found and provides enormous peace of mind.
Peace of mind
Finding the right care for an adult dependent, especially an elderly parent, is fraught with both practical and emotional difficulties. Adult & Eldercare Search provides a practical solution and peace of mind for working carers who feel supported in an area that they are likely to have had little prior experience in. Knowing that they have the right care can really reduce the stress and turmoil involved.
Lightening the domestic load
Researching and finding appropriate care is often a drawn out, time consuming and complicated business. Adult & Eldercare Search provides a means of lightening this load.
The knowledge their employer recognises the difficulties and supports them in finding the right care solution means that employees are likely to feel more valued by their employer.
