We are one of the few agencies that make it possible for vulnerable people to receive the highest quality care in the comfort of their own home.
We are often astonished by how few people consider live in care as a viable alternative to residential care.
Our philosophy is centred around getting the little things right for your loved ones – sticking to their well-established routines and their house rules really does allow them to maintain their independence.
We spend time getting to know our clients as individuals, so that we can build strong relationships and understand what makes them happy.
We are passionate about live in care. Our initial assessments and discussions with family mean that we can get the level of care just right. Our carers are chosen for their kind, compassionate nature as well as for their skills and experience. They take the time to find out how a person likes their tea in the morning, what time they like to eat their dinner, and whether they like their eggs sunny side up! Spending time getting the little things right is vital in enabling your loved one to stay in control of their lives.
Here at Ashridge Home Care, we pride ourselves on being small enough to provide a professional, tailored service that is truly personalised to your individual needs.
Relationships are absolutely key for us. The same person you talk to on the phone will be the person who will come out and meet you. Either Trudi or Hannah will continue to oversee the care – from the initial visit and for as long as we continue to support your loved one.
There are no cutting corners here. To us, it’s important that when we visit, we stay for long enough to have a chat, support around the house, and get to know your loved one that little bit better each time. These things can’t be rushed, and that’s why each visit is at least three hours long.
We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and are members of the professional body, HomeCare Association, so you can rest assured that we take live in care extremely seriously. We take an active role in raising awareness of the benefits of live in care, and are a founding member of the Live In Home Care Hub, whose shared aim is to raise the profile of live in care in the UK.
Within the care industry , we’re so proud that we’ve picked up four prestigious awards for our different home care services, it is fantastic that our Carers are recognised for the caring work that they do. Caring in our view is one of the most important jobs carried out, so we think it is absolutely fantastic that carers are being recognised in this way.
“I just wanted to say how delighted we are with Anca – she is a real delight!”
“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.”
Choosing live-in care is a huge decision and not something that you should take lightly.
Some of these conversations can be tricky and it’s our job to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible.
We are more than happy to visit you and your family at home to discuss your situation and consider the options available to you.
