A flexible, reliable service for Carers that can provide support when it is most needed

Our Service Provides

All our services are tailored to meet the needs of the carer and the person they are caring for. Carers need time to themselves, to pursue hobbies e.g. golf, swimming, gardening or just relaxing. We can arrange trained CRB checked Care Support Workers to take over to allow you time for yourself.

We Provide

  • essential breaks from the stresses of caring for people of all ages and disabilities.
  • the special quality of care that gives carers the peace of mind to let someone else step into their shoes.
  • support to people who live on their own to allow them to live independently.
  • a high quality service that is audited against the standards specified in CROQUET - Crossroads own evaluation tool, the County Inspectorate and the Care Quality Commission. Crossroads Care Hertfordshire South carries out client satisfaction surveys throughout the year, with all Carers and service users.
  • trained care support staff, who are managed, supervised and supported to work with a wide range of people with varying needs and disabilities.
     

Group Support

Crossroads offer various group support activities which include meetings for those recently bereaved in our “moving on Group” or for those who would just like to talk and meet with other carers we have our “carers Group” or our “time to listen service.

Crossroads manage a thriving “Day Activities” club called Borehamwood Seniors. The club is for older people living in and around the Borehamwood area. This club offers opportunities to people living alone who would otherwise be isolated or carers may also send a loved one to join in the various social activities available with this lively group.    This would allow the carers time to themselves, knowing their loved one is in a safe, stimulating and social environment.
This club is also available to people who live alone preventing isolation and promoting wellbeing.
We also have our Aldenham Lunch Club which is for carers and ex carers who may feel isolated or housebound, to socialise. The lunch is held at Aldenham School weekly from 2.00pm to 4.00pm during term time.
