Since 1989, we’ve been passionately and determinedly supporting our customers to continue living life on their own terms through our person-centred home care services. One of the areas of care in which our home care in Ashbourne team specialise is respite care, which is short-term support that is provided as cover when one or more of your regular caregivers needs a break or is unable to perform their duties.
There are occasions when you simply can’t anticipate needing extra care at home. It might be that you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than you initially expected, or perhaps your regular carer has made themselves unavailable for a few weeks and hasn’t been able to arrange cover. Whatever your reason for needing support in a pinch, respite care from our brilliant Ashbourne team gives you the opportunity to have one of our expert carers providing you with bespoke one-to-one care in your home, normally within 24 hours of your initial phone call. We want to make sure you experience as little disruption as possible to your usual routine so that life can proceed as normal.
When it comes to home care, it’s important to have a care service that is designed around your specific needs and wishes. Your circumstances and condition will be completely unique to you, so it doesn’t make sense to receive support that isn’t also unique to you. That’s why we’ll always take the time to fully understand how we can best support you – whether that’s ensuring we’re aware of any health concerns you have, or simply making a note of the way you like things to be done around your home and the routines you like to maintain.
Our industry-leading training ensures that every single one of our Ashbourne carers possesses the knowledge and skillset to provide you or your loved one with a wide range of specialist respite care services. However, we know that a carer is more than just their training. It takes a very special type of person to be a truly exceptional carer, which is why we’re so selective about who we recruit to our care teams. We’ll only ever hire people who share our company-wide family values, and who are as passionate as we are about providing transformative care to people who need it. We believe that character is even more important than skills and experience, and that’s definitely reflected in the kindness and compassion that our carers demonstrate on a daily basis. We also know the value of having peace of mind about the reliability and quality of your care, which is why we’re independently regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW).
