We are proud to announce that our Ashton Manor care home in Lancaster has been recognised as one of the top-rated care homes in the North West, having been named in the Carehome.co.uk Top 20 Care Home Awards for 2021.

carehome.co.uk Top 20 Care Home Award

The annual awards, run by the UK’s most popular care home listings website, names the top 20 most recommended care homes in each region across the UK. Just under a year since opening, our state-of-the-art home, Ashton Manor, has been recognised based on reviews from residents, and their families and friends, ahead of over 1,800 homes in the region and is the only care home in Lancaster to feature (there is no ranking within each region). Carehome.co.uk reviewers have rated homes based on a range of criteria including care and support, facilities, cleanliness, activities, food and drink, safety and security and value for money.

Reacting to the exciting news, Evermore Care Director Syd Coombes said:

“We are delighted to be recognised as one of the top-rated care homes in the North West. Our ethos at Evermore is to deliver the highest standards of care, while providing a lively and stimulating place for our residents to call home. To be recognised by our residents’ families and friends as doing just that is a proud moment for everyone at Ashton Manor.

Opening a new care home during a global pandemic is no mean feat, and I’m personally extremely proud of the hard work and expertise shown by our dedicated care team as they have navigated ever-changing and challenging circumstances while providing the best quality care and environment for our residents.

I’d like to thank everyone who has taken the time to write a review of Ashton Manor on carehome.co.uk – not only do your reviews help loved ones to find the perfect home for their relatives, but it’s also so rewarding for our team to read what a positive difference they are making to our residents’ lives.”

What our residents’ families have said about us

Here are just some of the wonderful reviews our residents’ families have left for Ashton Manor. You can see all our reviews on our carehome.co.uk page.

“After reading so many positive reviews we visited Ashton Manor to check it out for ourselves. We were not disappointed. From entering the newly built home, meeting the manager, and being shown around we soon realised we had found the right care home for Mum. All rooms are modern and of high specification, the staff are very friendly and caring, the food is excellent, the daily activities varied and interesting, and the lovely, enclosed garden is a very pleasant outside space for residents and visitors to enjoy. Mum is happy and well looked after at Ashton Manor.”

SC (resident’s daughter)

“When it came to that time, looking for care for Mum was a daunting prospect. As soon as I spoke with the manager from Ashton Manor I just knew it was going to be right. I was welcomed to view the home at my convenience and as soon as I walked through the door it confirmed my feelings that this was the perfect place for Mum. Modern, clean, beautiful decor, and a warm welcoming ambience. This home takes a person-centred approach to caring. Each resident is treated as an individual with specific likes and needs. Nothing is too much trouble. I am kept informed and up to date regularly by committed and caring staff. I and the rest of the family feel so relieved that Mum is safe and cared for in such a lovely, environment.”

Julia F (resident’s daughter)

“Ashton Manor is like a 5-star hotel with the best technology. The carers and staff are absolutely fabulous and dedicated to the care of the residents, whilst keeping relatives fully informed. I cannot praise my dad’s carers enough, they bring the best out in him and make him very happy. There are excellent daily activities to suit all residents and their needs. I would definitely recommend Ashton Manor to anyone requiring respite or permanent care.”

Covid-19 Important Information

At Evermore care homes we want to ensure that we are following the appropriate guidance issued by the relevant Government bodies in relation to Covid-19 and in doing so ensure we take the necessary measures to protect our residents, team members and visitors to our care home. We also want to provide assurance to yourselves in relation to the steps we are taking to maintain our care and treatment programmes as much as possible during this unprecedented time.

In line with Government guidance, our care homes continue to implement a number of measures to maintain the safety of our staff, residents, visitors and our local community. We are pleased to share that newly admitted residents will no longer need to self-isolate upon arrival if the home manager is satisfied local guidance from the Director of Public Health about community transmission of variants of concern has been followed.

In order to maintain, review and progress resident care and treatment programmes, we will facilitate meetings required remotely where possible. We do however facilitate face to face meetings and support contact with external professionals when required to support our residents physical and mental health needs. To do this we follow the required COVID-19 testing guidance and have implemented a number of additional measures to enable us to do this safely.

Business Continuity Plans

We have robust business continuity plans which identify all potential aspects of the business that may be affected during this time and we continue to update this in line with new guidance and on-going developments. These include reviewing and monitoring our teams and staffing levels and having a clear plan in place for worse care scenario situations.


Maintaining contact between our residents and their family remains an on-going priority for us as we recognise the importance and positive impact that family contact has for those we support. We have therefore developed flexible visiting procedures which may vary depending on guidance and other internal and external factors; our aim remains to keep our care homes accessible but also safe.

Our care homes continue to follow the relevant testing and PPE procedures for both our team members, visitors and those we support. Infection Control and thorough risk assessment remains an integral part of our current procedures in order to keep those we support and the wider community safe.

Please be assured that our aim is to continue to provide a safe and caring environment for our residents and one that maintains our high-quality standards in relation to care and treatment
