Care Quality Commission

“Ashridge responded to an emergency situation and were able to sort out a live-in carer within less than 24 hours. This really saved what was an extremely difficult and stressful situation.  Once the immediate emergency need was addressed, Ashridge were then able to do a full assessment and provided a carer who is fully able to meet the needs of my mother who is a challenging Alzheimer’s sufferer. The carer is also looking after both my parents with amazing meals and general home help. I have also been impressed with the management in terms of organisation and support of the carer in situ.”
