A ‘Better at Home’ study demonstrated why live-in care is a real alternative to residential or nursing home care. The live-in care hub study shares findings from research showing that people living in their own homes with live-in care are happier than those living in residential care. The report shows that live-in care reduces the number of common ‘older age’ incidents which will always happen as part of the risks of ageing. The risks of incidents like falls and hip fractures are reduced considerably by having round the clock live-in care in the home.
St Albans is quite simply a beautiful city in a wonderful location. Being in close proximity to London, it’s easy for friends and family to visit if they live and work in the city.

The wide selection of shops is also the perfect way to spend the day browsing. At Ashridge Home Care, we’ve built up a strong reputation with local businesses and doctors, meaning we can support you in your local area.

Arranging the right care for you or your loved one shouldn’t be a difficult process. This is why we’ve made it easy for you — simply fill in the form on this page or give our passionate team a call on 01494 917 344 for a friendly chat.
Once we’ve had a discussion about your needs, we’ll assign you a dedicated care manager who’ll pop over for a visit. This gives you a chance to ask any questions whilst filling out a needs assessment. The information from your assessment will be used to create a specialised care plan. We’ll give you and your loved ones time to read over this plan and won’t move forward until everyone’s 100% happy.
During our chats, we’ll take the time to get to know you and your hobbies and personality. This will help us to match you with the right carer who’ll quickly become your close companion.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the overall care and service offered by Ashridge. The entire team are extremely efficient and caring and fully understands the requirements of my father and have the necessary skills to provide them.
All the carers have been very sympathetic and patient and formed a real bond with my father. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!”
“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.”
“Just before Christmas my 88-year-old husband who has vascular dementia suffered a crisis. We were woefully unprepared and realised hands-on help was needed. Ashridge Home Care assessed the situation and found us a live-in carer at very short notice. He was wonderful, a perfect match for my husband.”
We understand how important it is to find the right carer for your loved one. We have a small and dedicated team of carers who work in the St Albans area and are committed to providing a high level of care. We ensure that we complete a full assessment of your loved ones’ needs to match them with a carer who understands their requirements.
We can match your loved one with a live-in carer for a minimum of two weeks to allow the breathing space you and your loved one need to make longer-term care decisions. This gives you time to assess what is best for both of you, whether it be to remain in the familiarity of their own home, or to decide what other options are more suited. Call our care team on 01494 917 344 or email firstname.lastname@example.org who will guide you through the assessment process and establish what care and support may be required.
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.
Finding a carer who you can trust and who can provide the exact care you require can be a daunting task. We have a team of dedicated, exceptional carers who work in the St Albans area who can offer you or your loved one the assistance you need.

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.
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.
