Family run care since 1987

Ashley Care Centre is a family run home specialising in dementia care since 1987. In that time we have provided much needed care and comfort for the people living here and given families peace of mind that their loved ones are being supported by well trained, kind and compassionate staff in a specialist  environment adapted to their needs.

Our Team

We recruit all our staff according to their attitude first, if a member of the team is kind, caring, emotionally intelligent and self motivated they are exactly the type of person we want to work with. Someone with experience or a deep desire to care can be taken through our comprehensive training programme and be given the knowledge and ability to care to our expectations.

We have a varied mix of staff working at the home; including nurses (both mental health and general health nurses), house leaders (or seniors), care assistants, house-keepers and many others support staff. What we all share is a willingness to to provide the very best care to our residents in a happy, content home emphasising a family style ethos.

Our Bedrooms

All our bedrooms are tastefully decorated and including a TV, height adjustable bed, nurse call alarm as well as a sensor mat or other technology to alert staff in case a resident gets out of bed and needs immediate support.

During the night staff check on residents at least every two hours and ensure all their personal care needs are met. Almost all of our bedrooms have en-suite facilities which allows us to provide immediate and discreet care.

Mealtimes

We have a tasty and nutritious menu offering a varied selection of meals catering to all tastes. We can meet most dietary needs of residents including gluten free and diabetic meals. We offer a full range of textured diets from standard through to puree. We also offer delicious snacks throughout the day and night so that your loved one won’t feel hungry regardless of their own personal routine.

Log Cabin

We offer our idyllic log cabin for special activity events that includes a pamper sessions, tea parties and to host special family events such as birthdays or anniversaries.

Tap Room

We have our very own pub within the home! Residents find the Tap Room pub a really enjoyable place to eat a pub style lunch, have a drink and maybe watch some sport. We also use the room for hosting special family events or as a quiet room if relatives would like a more private cosy place to use during a visit.

Bathrooms

All our bathrooms come fitted with safety aids and nurse calls. Staff are always here to provide support and assistance. We have specialist wet rooms and baths depending on a residents wishes or ability.

The Garden

Our outside space includes the Courtyard which residents really benefit from as, particularly in the warmer months, they are able to move around themselves whilst all the time being observed for safety. It is all on one flat level and is secure for those that need to wander.

The courtyard includes raised sensory garden beds which we encourage residents to help tend to plant. We also have our three chickens that some residents help to feed and while away some time just watching.

Entertainment & Activities

We have a varied number of outside Entertainers that visit the home all of whom we feel really get the most out residents with their acts. Varying from Singers, magicians, and ventriloquists.

We have our own activity programme with something going on every day from seated physical exercises, flower arranging, baking and reminiscence sessions and a lot more. Every residents type of activity is created according to their own strengths and wishes so we make sure there is something for everyone to take part in.
