Live-in care is the safest care option to protect older people during the Covid-19 crisis

Live-in care at home is one of the safest and most comfortable forms of elderly care.

Today marks a significant change in our society. Our carers are doing such a brilliant job taking care of the most vulnerable members of our community. For the team at Ashridge Home Care it is business as usual, with extra precautions in place to keep everyone safe. Our office is closed but we are operating normally through remote working.
We know that providing the very best care is about finding the right people who genuinely care about helping and getting things right for you. The training and support we provide for our care staff means that, in turn, they provide the very best level of care to our clients. We are extremely proud of the environment we have created where our care staff are valued and rewarded for the work they do.

A ‘Better at Home’ study demonstrated why live in care is a real alternative to residential or nursing home care. The study shares findings from research commissioned by the live in home care hub showing that people living in their own homes with live in care are happier and safer than those living in residential care.

If living alone or with a partner is becoming increasingly difficult, we can provide that little bit of extra support they need to maintain as much of their independence as possible. Our live-in carers manage everything that needs to be done in the home. They take care of the housekeeping, shopping, and cooking, and are extremely respectful when providing the personal care needed to maintain a dignified and fulfilling life.

COVID-19 continues to be dominating our days and we are taking every effort possible to keep people safe. The operations team meet daily to review our plans and to make sure everyone working in our team is equipped and supported. Live in care at home is the safest option for people right now, one to one care in the safety of ones home.
