Ashcroft specialises in providing individually tailored care packages for elderly people with dementia, Alzheimers' and physical & mental health problems, or even a combination of ALL of these. Ashcroft is registered Elderly (EMI) and we have specialised in dementia and related care issues for 25 years, so we have the experience to deal with individuals with complex care needs. We OFTEN provide care to people who have had problems settling into other care homes or cannot be placed elsewhere due to behavioural or other problems. Our care packages are very flexible and we can adjust them to suit the needs of complex care issues of both physical and mental health in addition to dementia. Our care philosophy is "Home for Life" and is Christian based.
