If you don’t need specialist care but are struggling to get out and about as much as you’d like, our carers are on hand to keep you company.

We can take you out for a coffee or lunch, or just be someone you can chat with.

If you’re lonely at home and you just want someone to pop in, we’d love to provide a friendly face, or perhaps you’re just struggling with some of the day-to-day tasks of running your home.

Having a live-in carer, or a carer who visits each day, can provide assistance with a whole range of jobs that could really help you to remain in control, as well as benefit from companionship.

“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.”

Here to help

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.
