Finding out that you have cancer can be a shocking event, even if you already suspected it. We can help you or your loved one – whatever your specific situation.
Caring for a friend or family member can be both rewarding and challenging. Our bespoke cancer care plans can help you know what to expect – from day-to-day care to looking after your own needs.
It’s understandable that so many people want to stay in their homes, with their pets and partners and everything that’s is familiar to them. Luckily, home care is a life-enhancing alternative to care homes that’s available to many people.
Depending on the treatment plan your oncologist recommends, you may find yourself unable to complete daily tasks. A live-in care agency can offer a sense of normality by assisting with day-to-day tasks from the comfort of your own home.
Undergoing cancer treatment can disrupt your daily routine. But it doesn’t have to. Live-in care can offer much-needed emotional support and practical help during one of the most challenging events of your life.
We take the time to carefully consider individual needs so we can provide the highest quality care. Which is why we’ve been awarded Outstanding in Care by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), our attention to detail ensures our clients are always happy and comfortable with our carers.
If you’re living in your own home and have been diagnosed with cancer, you may have questions about getting the care you need. As specialists in cancer care, we are happy to help answer any questions and soothe any doubts, simply give us a call on 01494 917 344.

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.
