Our Care

Personal (Residential) and Nursing Care

We recognise the decision to move a loved one into residential care can be a difficult one.  Although many people are staying in their own homes longer, isolation and loneliness can lead to an increased risk of depression and other mental and physical health problems.  Your loved one coming to a care home doesn’t mean that your role as a carer ends.

We very much encourage the continued support of family and friends, and we sometimes find our relationships with our loved ones improve as we spend quality time together without the stresses and time pressures of full-time care. Come and dine with your relative, bring grandchildren to watch a film in the cinema room, visit for scones in the tea room or enjoy the terraces and courtyard in the sun, our care home is a family home.

As a first step in getting to know new residents, we will ask them to complete an ‘About Me’ form which encourages them to share information about their background, wellbeing, preferences, interests and any concerns they may have. Here at Ashton Manor, our personal care teams work closely with families to create bespoke care plans for each resident, so they can continue to live a full and happy life with support along the way. Our philosophy of care values individuality – residents are encouraged to express who they are, continue with pastimes they enjoy, play music they love, try new experiences and entertain family members they value and care for.

At Ashton Manor, our spacious bedroom suites offer comfortable living space where residents can relax in privacy with their own en-suite wet room, television with video calling and call button for assistance. The tea room and lounge areas offer friendly spaces to meet others, make friends and take part in a varied programme of activities and events. Good food is of course also a priority: meals are balanced and nutritious, and favourite recipes can be requested.

Dementia Care

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia it can be an overwhelming experience. There are more than 820,000 people living with dementia in the UK and every 3 minutes someone else will be diagnosed with this debilitating and distressing condition.

At Ashton Manor we understand the demands this condition places on families with loved ones living with dementia, and we have designed our care home around their needs. We celebrate the person they have been and continue to be by learning about hobbies they enjoy, the careers they dedicated their lives to, music they love to listen to, and family members they are close to. We encourage residents to bring their favourite photographs and mementos which help to trigger happy memories and important milestones in their life. Activities are tailored to individual abilities and preference to keep residents as mentally and physically active as possible. Meals are balanced and nutritious, favourite recipes can be requested as we recognise that these can evoke happy memories and feelings of comfort. 

Our home incorporates key features recommended by leading research groups to help with the nature of this progressive condition. Lighting has been set to standards which helps residents with cognitive impairments. Communal spaces, although spacious and airy, have been organised into smaller ‘households’ to encourage residents to socialise in smaller numbers and gain confidence. Gently curved corridors enhance a sense of homeliness whilst themed galleries and interactive spaces provide visual stimulus and improved orientation.  

If you are looking for residential dementia care for a loved one, you can be assured that at Ashton Manor we have years of experience caring for those affected. We will strive to address your worries or concerns, ensuring a calm and comfortable transition into our home.

Respite (Short Stay) and Convalescent Care

Some residents will be interested in coming for shorter periods, perhaps whilst their family is away or after a hospital stay, or just simply to experience and enjoy the facilities, food and fun on offer at Ashton Manor.  

We provide respite care for residents requiring residential, nursing or dementia care.

Our Respite Care offers residents the same high standard of care and attention to detail that our long-term residents enjoy. It allows residents and families alike to truly relax, safe in the knowledge that professional care will be on hand 24-hours a day. Your loved one’s routine will be completely taken care of, from meals to laundry, activities to a haircut and everything in between. We want our short stay residents to leave our homes feeling refreshed and energised. It’s also the perfect opportunity for families and carers to get a well-deserved rest.
