Qualities of In-home Care Providers

Elderly people require love, care, support and round the clock attention. What if your aging parents require more care and support than you can provide them? It is a difficult decision to make. However, in some cases, it is better to shift your elderly parents or relatives to a nursing home. If you are looking for a Brighton nursing home, equipped with all required facilities, you will find many options to choose from. However, before you finalise a nursing home, it is important to know about the quality of in-home care they provide.

At Ashton House, we provide both residential and nursing care elderly persons. Apart from providing all usual facilities, we provide nursing home care under the care of our trained and experienced care managers. We make sure that care is available round the clock. The home is situated in heart of the scenic town of Haywards Heath not far from Brighton.

  • Our care managers and deputy care managers work in three shifts: 7am-2pm, 2pm-8pm and 8pm -7am. This means that you get round the clock service.
