CARE HOMES FOR LOVED ONES

THE ASHMERE PHILOSOPHY
our homes offer an active lifestyle with friendship, well-being, enjoyment, comfort and safety
When we founded Ashmere we had a vision. To create a safe environment and provide an enjoyable lifestyle for people who choose to make Ashmere their home. To achieve this, we have thoughtfully invested in our buildings and more importantly, our staff. This ensures that every Ashmere care home provides quality accommodation, a quality level of care and an enjoyable lifestyle. To keep our residents fulfilled, all our homes provide a schedule of activities and games. Our staff are trained to encourage everyone to be as active as possible, whether it’s joining in one of our afternoon activity sessions, or taking a minibus trip to a local attraction. Also with modern well equipped bedrooms and well maintained gardens surrounding all our homes, there’s always a place to catch a quiet moment too.

All Ashmere care homes follow a simple philosophy, to provide an active lifestyle, secure homely surroundings and a caring community. Our aim is to give all our residents a worthwhile new chapter in their lives. We achieve this by encouraging everyone to be as active as possible and to share in our friendly community.

With daily games and activities we keep everybody thoroughly occupied. In many of our care homes we even open our doors to the local community by organising ‘lunch clubs’, this gives our residents the opportunity of making even more new friends. Additionally, to really make a home from home, we have pets too. Quite simply, at Ashmere, we care.

Activities and hobbies form the basis of life at Ashmere. All of our homes have a thoughtful schedule of indoor and outdoor activities and games designed to be enjoyed by everyone. In addition to the homes own facilities, we also have a wealth of centralised facilities available to all of our residents, including a hydrotherapy pool, jacuzzi, sauna and phisiotherapy facilities. All of our staff are trained to encourage residents to be active and to join in with appropriate activities.

THE ASHMERE LIFESTYLE
Indoor and outdoor activities, shared hobbies, friendship and enjoyment, all in a safe environment

As well as our scheduled activities, we firmly believe that new pastimes provide pleasure at any age. That’s why we actively encourage the sharing of hobbies, from painting and drawing to bowling or music. We also organise themed evenings, with food and music, to add that cosmopolitan flavour to our homes. In addition, to keep our residents looking and feeling their best, we have weekly visits from the chiropodist and hairdresser.

We also have a programme of summer fetes, BBQs and other outdoor events that residents can share with family and friends. And every home has access to our fleet of fully equipped minibuses which we use for regular day trips to local attractions including garden centres, shops, museums and art galleries. We even arrange boat trips from most of our homes. It’s a wide range of interests and activities that all adds up to the Ashmere lifestyle.

CARE HOME INFORMATION
Care at each of our homes is provided 24 hours a day by our highly qualified residential or nursing staff. Each home has a passenger lift and all accommodation is provided with an electronic call system, nursing/bath aids and quality furnishings. Each home also has local doctors available for any medical care, but if they prefer, residents can choose the doctor of their choice wherever possible. Pastoral/spiritual care is made available by local churches, and arrangements can be easily made for visits by a member of the resident’s own denomination. We ensure that our staff are suitably trained and that they are provided with ongoing training to gain nationally recognised qualifications. Occupational therapists, opticians, physiotherapists, dentists, chiropodists, and hairdressers also visit the homes on a regular basis. Any special requirements, including diets, are cheerfully catered for at all of our homes.
