Lancaster’s only Top 20 Care Home
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.
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.
My background is in care, I’ve worked in this industry for over 9 years on dementia and end of life units, working at Ashton Manor has given me the opportunity to see the other side of this, working with people living with dementia.
I want the people to be happy and to give them what they want, not just what they need. We’re trying to build something really special here and we want people to have a mealtime experience as good as you’d get in a hotel.
We want to make sure that families know that their loved ones are in good hands, that they are safe and happy. If we know a family member is struggling, we can call them to give them some reassurance as we know just how overwhelming it must be for them, and what a difference it can make to hear from us.
