Care Quality Commission

“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”
