What are personal care services?

As we get older, we may need some extra help with our daily activities and require the support of personal care services. These services include support with activities like bathing, dressing, and grooming, and help with maintaining personal hygiene and dignity. Carers can also assist with mobility, medication management, meal preparation, and household tasks. 

Beyond catering to basic needs, it’s essential to feel connected and emotionally supported, and carers can provide companionship and emotional support to fight loneliness and promote mental wellbeing. It can even be as simple as providing transport so that they can have access to medical appointments and stay involved in their community.

    Ashridge Home Care Christmas Support for elderly

    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.
