Making the decision to receive home care can be a big one. Here, we chat to long-time client Sue, who tells us about her experience with Home Instead in Ascot.

Receiving home care can be a life-changing experience for those who desire to maintain their independence while receiving the necessary support.

Sue shares her journey of embracing home care services at Ascot and highlights the positive impact it has had on her life.

Choosing Home Care: A Companion for Independence

Sue is vibrant and lively as we sit together on the sofa. She found herself in a difficult position when her husband died – her family wanted her to move closer to them, while Sue was determined to maintain her independence. So, they opted for an alternative solution: home care services.

The First Steps into Home Care

Sue remembers the conversation she had with her family. “They said ‘well, as long as you have a carer, and we know someone’s coming in every day, and we know you’re alright’”. She’s pleased that they recognised her need for independence, while also being able to give them reassurance that she will be looked after – she laughs as she tells us “I’m all over the place. I’m a live wire!”
