    Hear the difference home care can make, from people who’ve experienced it

    “From initially speaking to this company about the possibility of them supplying a carer for my elderly partner I had total confidence that all would be well due to the professional approach and the way they listened to our requirements and acted on them. The carer they provided was incredibly good – caring, professional and full of empathy – I could not recommend them highly enough.”

    “I contacted Ashridge Home Care literally just before lockdown for COVID 19 as my very elderly parents had previously only had daily care for 3 hours a day. They were extremely professional and efficient and within 4 days we had a full-time carer move in. She has been absolutely miraculous giving the  excellent and vital care they so desperately needed. I can’t recommend Ashridge more highly.”

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How does hourly care work?

We can assist you with household tasks, personal care and can offer companionship. For more information, take a look at our hourly care services.

    How will your loved one be matched with a live-in carer?

We have a small and dedicated team of carers who work in the Gerrards Cross area and are committed to providing a high level of care. We ensure that we complete a full assessment of their needs to match your loved one with the right carer.

    Do you offer sleeping and waking care services?  

    Yes, Live-in and/or overnight care can be arranged to suit your relative’s needs, we understand that some people prefer someone to stay overnight but may not have the space for a live-in carer. We often find that overnight care works well to help with a short-term situation. We work with you and your relative to tailor the care to their needs. We offer two types of care: Sleeping night support is when one of our specialist carers simply sleeps in the home and Waking night support is when a specialist carer stays awake during the night. Waking night support is recommended for more complex conditions, such as the advanced stages of dementia.

    How does the cost of a live-in carer compare to the cost of a care home in Gerrards Cross?​​​​​

    ​​​​​​​Despite a common misconception that live-in care is much more expensive compared to moving in to a residential care home, in many instances it is an affordable alternative and can even be less expensive when a couple is being cared for at home. Research conducted in 2021 by the live-in care hub confirms that the cost of live-in care is on a par with many care and nursing home fees, especially in the South East and London, and is broadly equivalent to the price of the top half of care homes in the south of England.

    Do you offer live-in care in other locations?

    Yes, we offer live-in care across the South East of England, including Amersham, High Wycombe, Berkhamsted, Thame, High Wycombe and Princes Risborough.

    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.
