Eldering is a comprehensive resource for people who are concerned about what to do and how to manage as their parents age.

We understand that preparing for our parents old age and caring for them can be overwhelming. One minute your ageing parent is healthy, sharp and self-sufficient and then suddenly you start to notice changes. Perhaps they become the victim of a scam, start getting confused about bills and finances or perhaps they have a nasty fall.

For most of us, this stage of life is totally unanticipated and unplanned – often marked by enormous stress, anxiety and confusion. Our goal is to provide the information and guidance you need to navigate this challenging time. On our website, you will find a wide range of articles and resources covering topics such as health issues, in-home care, safety and security, financial planning, and legal matters.

Caring for aging parents can be emotionally taxing, and it is important to take care of yourself as well. In addition to practical information, we also offer articles and resources to support you with the emotional and psychological challenges of having ageing parents.

We strive to deliver exceptional guidance and information to help you support and care for your ageing parents, to help them age well while looking after yourself as well. We achieve this by working with a panel of independent experts from a range of relevant fields, including medicine, law, clinical psychology and social care. Our Eldering experts are highly trained professionals who possess the passion and expertise required to ensure our content is complete and accurate.

Whether you are just starting to think about what you will need to do for your parents as they age, or you are already in the midst of providing support and care, Eldering is here to help.

Our Mission

Today there’s a growing population of us trying to balance the demands of work, family and our own lives while providing the best support we can for our ageing parents.

We are a social venture. Our mission is to ensure that people have the knowledge, confidence and clarity to navigate this difficult stage of life, to help their parents live safe and well into old age without compromising their own health in the process. As carers for elderly parents ourselves, we believe that old age can be better for everyone if we are properly informed and prepared, so that we can focus on the more rewarding aspects of supporting those that cared for us.

Who are we

Katie, Co-founder

Katie was a busy communications professional in her early forties when it became clear that her elderly father could no longer manage on his own anymore.  Over the last few years, she has gradually stepped back from her career in order to care for him.

Her realisation that so few of us are properly prepared for this life stage, and her struggle to find good, holistic information and guidance, prompted her to do something about it. As well as launching Eldering, Katie launched and is the content creator behind the viral Instagram account @dadanddolly.

“For me, Eldering is a passion project born out of my own experiences and the desire to help others, both adult children and their ageing parents, going through the same life stage. I believe that later life can be better for everyone if we are properly prepared and supported, and can focus on the more rewarding aspects of taking care of those who took care of us.” 

 

Simon, Co-founder

Simon is a technology professional who is increasingly helping to care for his brilliant but ageing parents.

Through this journey he has quickly become aware of the lack of clear guidance and information for people caring for their elder parents and relatives.

Given the fact that almost all of us will go through this journey at some point, I’ve been amazed at how hard you have to search to find all the information and resources you need.  There is a real need for an accessible, central portal and I’m incredibly enthusiastic about the positive impact that Eldering will have for myself and others facing the same journey.”
