In the latest episode of HOME CARE HOT SEAT, HCI sits down with Trudi Scrivener, the managing director of Buckinghamshire-based Ashridge Home Care, and a co-founder of the Live-in Care Hub.
She talks about her passion for raising public awareness of live-in care as an alternative option to care homes, and how her business has been supporting residential care managers through the pandemic.
Scrivener also discusses her thoughts on major home care players expanding into the live-in care space and how she expects providers to fill job roles for the new services they are creating, particularly when the new immigration rules come into force.
Finally, the MD shares her reaction to winning the Home Care Hero (Innovation) award at the recent Care Heroes Awards and discusses her hopes for the future of the live-in care sector.
Please note that this interview was filmed during the second lockdown in November.
