Speaking on behalf of our wider family I take great pleasure in writing to you to express our thoughts regarding the care provided by Betty for our father .
My father is 100 yrs old this week and requires a full care service 24 hours a day , Betty provides this with a smile on her face always and with a professionalism and patience that is a credit to both her and you as the providing company . It is not easy coping with my fathers requirements , which can be onerous at times especially at night but Betty always seems to have the right attitude to any problem and has obviously formed a great understanding of how to handle any situation or challenge she is confronted with .
Betty’s ability to make my father smile has defused many tricky situations , she never gets flustered and always has just the correct word or action at hand to make Dad feel safe and secure and always shows the compassion and empathy necessary for someone in my fathers position . He can sometimes feel vulnerable and less than happy with his “lot” but Betty is always able to make him feel at ease and appears completely unflappable !
We think Betty is a pretty special human being and that we are very lucky to have her looking after our father at this time in his life .
Ashridge provided an emergency placement for me when I needed a live-in carer on 24hrs notice. This was a godsend to me as my mother had advanced Alzheimer’s and my Dad had been rushed into hospital. I really appreciated the professional approach from all the staff I dealt with and felt very supported. Ashridge found me a first class carer who was able to provide wonderful live-in care for both my parents allowing them to spend a few more months together in their home of 35 years. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ashridge and live-in care.
“Rita is doing a great job in our eyes and our mother is so happy and relaxed, they have so much in common and seem to have built a lovely relationship.”
“The carer is superb and she is exactly what we wanted. At least we know mum has someone there overnight if she needs anything.”
“We’re delighted with Lucy!! She is brilliant and lovely with my dad and they’ve bonded really well. It’s obviously a huge relief and thanks to you, Sarah and the team for finding ANOTHER great carer so well suited for my dad.” Mr C, Cambridgeshire, March 2020
“I would like just to record that your help at this very difficult time has been invaluable to us all.”
“Trisha is doing a great job with mum. It is really important for us as when Trisha is with mum it means me and my sister don’t need to go and visit that day.”
“Our carer is so wonderful and we wouldn’t want to lose her – she has been excellent looking after my father, the dogs and the house while my mother has been in hospital.”
“I and indeed the whole family are most appreciative of your warmth and kindnesses.”
“Susan is a superb Carer and she is exactly what we wanted. She loves dogs and that is really important as we have 3”.
“Joanna is doing a great job in our eyes and our mother is so happy and relaxed, they have so much in common and seem to have built a lovely relationship.”
“In January this year my 90 year old Mum, who has dementia, had the latest of many falls in her flat. We decided that she should move in with us. We had a ski holiday booked and thought of cancelling when we met a member of staff from Ashridge Home Care. Our concerns vanished overnight. Regular phone calls to our daughter filled us with confidence that Mum was well, medicine compliant and happy. Ashridge Home Care were excellent and we are using them again in October. We would highly recommend them”
“I’d been (unsuccessfully) doing totally random jobs for 20 years, & not enjoying it. In 2013, when I started caring, I found my calling. I make a genuine difference to people’s lives. I show respect to people that have a lifetime of experience and have lived! I make someone’s life a better place, & that’s why I do what I do”.
