Our aim is to make your homecare experience not just good, but amazing!
Ashton Home Care strives to do more than meeting your physical needs and keeping you safe. We want to provide a service that enriches your life and gives you the fulfilment that you deserve.
Whatever our age or medical condition we all seek a life that is enriched with meaning and purpose. This is vital to our emotional and mental well-being. It maintains our sense of who we are and our self-esteem. Ashton goes beyond the usual services that many homecare companies provide. We focus on what is important to you and how we can meet your spiritual, mind, body and familial needs.
A key part of our homecare and support service is to get to know the unique qualities and characteristics of each service user. We want to know about your interests and hobbies and the experiences that light up your life.
We will then try and match you with a home care worker who shares your interests. Being supported by someone who understands your passions gives that extra encouragement to keep your mind stimulated and your heart fulfilled.
Pets are often important to people who need domiciliary care and support. This is likely to be even more so for people who are less mobile or who are more isolated.
Evidence from studies tells us that the animal-human emotional bond brings significant emotional and social benefits. Caring for a pet provides purpose, a routine and consistency to many people’s lives. Pets help people to feel safe and secure. They provide company and can support grieving adults and children, so that symptoms of depression are reduced. Touch is crucial to well-being. Stroking a pet has been proved to have a calming and relaxing effect, even producing physiological effects such as lowered blood pressure.
If you have a pet, as part of our domiciliary care service we will try and match you to a care worker who also enjoys and understands animals. You will be able to share the pleasure of your special pet together.
