Ashridge Home Care, recently awarded ‘Best Employer’ in Buckinghamshire County Council’s ‘Proud of Bucks’ Awards is actively looking to hire 100 live-in carers and visiting carers to help take care of its growing number of clients.
Based in Amersham, Ashridge Home Care arranges live in and visiting carers to look after people in their own homes and, as a result, of the pandemic has seen a significant increase in demand for their services as elderly people choose to be cared for in their own home rather than go into residential care.
Between April 2020 and January 2021 Ashridge Home Care saw a 75% increase in its client base and hired an additional 30 carers. With further growth projected for 2021 they are actively looking to recruit over 100 more carers this year to join their 80-strong team.
Voted Best Employer in Buckinghamshire, Ashridge Home Care prides itself on offering industry-leading rates of pay (live in carers can earn up to £750 per week with their accommodation and food paid for), attractive benefits, bonus scheme, holiday pay and pension. With no prior caring experience necessary, new joiners are provided with best-in-class training and the opportunity to gain qualifications and develop a rewarding career in the care sector.
Trudi Scrivener, Owner and MD of Ashridge Home Care said: ‘The pandemic has brought into sharp focus the risks of residential care versus the alternative of being cared for in your own home. With live-in care our clients enjoy a safe and familiar environment and are looked after by a professional carer who knows their individual needs and provides the friendship, protection and support they need to maintain their independence and dignity.
‘At Ashridge we go the extra mile to create a great place to work and ensure our team feel valued and looked after, so they are able to provide the best possible care to our clients. As a growing business we are always on the lookout for caring, compassionate people to join our fantastic team.’
