Delivering person-centred professional care with a smile is at the heart of Amersham-based Ashridge Home Care, and its efforts have been rewarded at an annual awards event partnered by the Homecare Association. The Home Care Awards aim to be the annual benchmark of excellence for UK companies and organisations providing all forms of care at home services. The business of home care is growing fast in the UK and these awards tease out brilliant examples of home care services and operations, give them due recognition, then celebrate their success at a memorable Awards occasion.
Representatives from the company received the accolade at a celebratory lunch in Bickenhill’s National Conference Centre recently, which was attended by the care sector’s leading care companies. Newly appointed Managing Director Louise Joslin attended the awards with Care-Co-ordinator Chloe Timberlake.
Ashridge was shortlisted at the event for three awards and won the Live-In Care expertise category. It was also shortlisted for Recruitment and Training and received Finalist recognition for its marketing efforts.
Company Founder, Trudi Scrivener commented: ‘I have an amazing team of carers who look after their clients with the utmost attention to detail, making sure their life is fulfilled and all their needs are met. Everyone goes out of their way to ensure clients are happy, safe and living life to the full and it is a real pleasure to share this recognition with them!’ She continued: ‘Industry awards are brilliant recognition, but positive client feedback is second to none.’
A client recently left a review on homecare.co.uk saying: ‘Ashridge Home Care have been caring for my mum for the last few years. They have been amazing in every way. Mum struggles with dementia and is unable to do certain things, but the extraordinary care and support offered by Ashridge allow her to live joyously and fulfilling day by day. They ensure the chores are done, they ensure the routines are organised and they ensure there is happiness in all of this. Thank you!’
Ashridge Home Care is one of the few care companies in the country to offer both full-time live-in care as well as hourly visiting care with a minimum two-hour time slot, so carers really get to know their clients and build a meaningful relationship. Each care plan is tailor-made to the individual and clients and their families respond overwhelmingly positively to this personalised approach.
