The nurses at Ashmere are very proud to work within the Ashmere family. With the support of our management and support staff we can strive to achieve the very best individualized care for our residents.

We offer care over a wide range of needs including older people, mental health, learning disabilities and physical disabilities.

We are supported in our role with continuing education and training within and outside the Ashmere group.

As nurses we strive to maintain the very best clinical practice working alongside other professionals in the community including GP, S Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Social workers and many more so that our residents are offered the maximum support to improve and maintain optimum physical and mental health.

We lead by example mentoring our care staff ensuring that by being valued our staff feel empowered to deliver individualized care to care to our residents with quality and compassion.

Ask our Team

Just a few questions our new residents have asked on enquiry;

Do I really Need Care?

If you, a friend or relative feel that you/they are in need of care, you can ask Social Services to carry out an assessment of your/their needs. Once informed that somebody may need care, the authority, often jointly with the Health Authority or GP, has a duty to carry out an assessment should reveal if care at home or in a residential setting is needed.

How will I know if living at Ashmere is right for me?

All our homes have different facilities and atmospheres, so we'd encourage you to visit before you make up your mind.
Our staff are happy to cater for you to trial the home if you wish by coming in for respite care, we can also offer for you to have lunch with our residents so you can find out more about what life is like at Ashmere.
