24-Hour Care at Home

Looking for 24-hour care for your loved one? Our dedicated carers are available 24/7 to ensure that your loved one is supported, comfortable and safe at home. You can trust us to provide compassionate care and bring peace of mind to you and your family.

What is 24-hour care?

24-hour care, often referred to as round-the-clock care, provides continuous support and assistance to individuals who require ongoing supervision and aid with daily tasks. Similar to live-in care, 24-hour care involves a carer residing with the individual in their home, ensuring that they have access to assistance at any time of the day or night. This level of care is particularly beneficial for individuals with complex medical needs, mobility issues, cognitive impairments or those recovering from surgery or illness. 

With 24-hour care, individuals like your loved one can receive immediate assistance, whenever they need it. Support with everyday tasks, medication management, assistance with personal care, meal preparation and companionship are all provided by our exceptional live-in carers. We make sure that your loved one is looked after around-the-clock, without the need for them to leave the comfort of their own home.

Ashridge Home Care Christmas Support for elderly

Supporting a person who is developing dementia

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.
