Helping you remain Independent in your own Home
Pentlow Community Care in Eastbourne and surrounds, and our new service Ashridge Community care in Bexhill and surrounds, can help you with a range of needs to enable you to retain independence in your own home. Our experienced and friendly team of carers are ready and able to support you in a number of ways.
Our clients' care is individualised to provide help with a specific task, such as getting up, washing and dressing in the morning, or help getting ready and going to bed in the evening. The plan of care will take account of all of your needs, wishes, preferences and personal goals. We will continue to support your aim of maintaining as high a quality of life as possible.
The safety and well-being of our clients is of the utmost importance to us, therefore our carers are carefully selected. A rigorous recruitment process enables us to ensure that we are selecting the right individual to carry out the tasks that we or our client requests. All our carers undertake a comprehensive training programme to ensure that they are equipped for all eventualities.
