The setting's ethos is around happy and healthy lifestyles. Ashridge Home Care offers care tailored to suit the individual, taking into account the things that are important to the client, like family, interests, pets or the garden. This ethos applies to both the care provided to clients and also the support given to staff.

Having a live-in carer removes all the unnecessary upheaval of leaving home to go to unfamiliar surroundings. This is especially important to those with dementia where familiar belongings and routines are essential to providing comfort at times of confusion.

Considering live-in care is a huge step and this can cause lots of emotions. It’s difficult for people to accept that they need care, especially when life has been independent and fulfilling.

Ashridge Home Care can help people through this process. Giving all the information needed in order to help people make the right decision.

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 understand 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.

I would like to thank you and the caregivers at Ashridge Home Care for the care and compassion you provided to my father. Ashridge Home Care caregivers were professional, knowledgeable and caring.
Just as important, they were kind and compassionate human beings that significantly helped his mental outlook and provided friendship and companionship during a difficult period.
Thank you is not enough. I will recommend you and your staff to any and all that want or need to have someone take care of their loved ones.

When my husband and I realised how his cousin, who lives 150 miles away, was going into hospital for a massive knee operation, we were very concerned that living on her own and at aged 85, she would need really first class caring 24/7 when she returned to her own home.
We were so delighted that Ashridge Home Care was able to visit our cousin to assess her and to select one of her excellent young careers to look after her.
Yesterday we visited her and were thrilled to see her with her sweet carer, with whom she had enjoyed her TLC and skills in running her home. Apparently, her physiotherapist was so impressed with our cousin's legs, after so much massaging from her, that her legs were nearly normal again after years of suffering from swelling legs and ankles. We do not know how she would have coped without Ashridge Home Care as they are so conscientious and skilled in finding the right carer for their clients.
We thoroughly recommend them and do not hesitate to recommend them.

The service we have received as a family has been excellent. Ashridge Home Care have been very professional, knowledgeable and sensitive to my mother-in-law's needs. The qualified carer they have provided is very well suited to the role and has already formed a very positive relationship with my mother-in-law, who feels very reassured that she has this marvellous support at home to give her greater confidence and improve her quality of life. We anticipate this is the beginning of a solution which will enable my mother-in-law to remain in the comfort of her own home with the support she needs.
Thank you so much.

We have with working with Ashridge Home Care for about a month now as my mother has a live in carer. The carers are always so lovely and cannot do enough for my mother - I haven't seen her this happy in years! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for care as they have gone above and beyond my expectations.
