We can offer the peace of mind that if your loved one needs emergency help at home, we’re here to help.
Urgent home care covers a wide range of situations. Perhaps you’ve had a sudden change in your circumstances and can no longer care for your relative. Or, they may have fallen ill or suffered an injury. The main feature of urgent home care is that it can be provided at short notice.
Emergency home care is for anyone in urgent need of support, covering all facets of care, from completing daily tasks to assisting with appointments and more. Despite having a sudden change in circumstances, urgent home care allows your loved one to remain in the comfort of their own home whilst receiving professional care. This peace of mind removes stress, enabling them to continue living as independently as possible.
We take the time to create a personalised care plan specifically for your loved ones’ needs. Here are just a few things we can offer:
The list is endless, with the option for as much or little support as you’d like. We can offer emergency live-in care with 24-hour assistance for those that need hands-on support on a daily basis. Providing extra support to continue living life on their own terms. We can also offer hourly care. This gives you the flexibility to have a carer visit your loved one a few times a week to take care of certain tasks.
Every situation is different, but sometimes emergency care is needed for the following reasons:
If your loved one has been discharged from hospital after an operation, been let down by their current care provider, or needs urgent care after a fall, we can help, often within 48 hours of your call.
Often, family members are overwhelmed with the demands of organising urgent care for a loved one. We can manage the practical side of things so you can be there to support emotionally. Organising hospital appointments and transport, seeking specialist medical advice, helping around the home – we can take care of everything.

Within 24 hours of your call, one of our Care Managers will visit your relative at home to assess their needs. From that point on, the same person who carried out the assessment will oversee the care arrangements for as long as we are needed.
Once we’ve assessed their needs and got to know them, we’ll assign a dedicated carer to your loved one who matches their personal preferences.
“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”
Choosing 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.
