Ashton House is under the care of our Senior Manager Lynn Shingfield and her Unit Managers
Iris Macansantos – in Main House the Nursing Wing and
Faith Mchunu & Bincy Mathew – in the Hazelwood Wing for residents with medium to severe dementia
In addition the Nurse managers are supported on the floor by a team of nurses and care staff. Ashton House has at least 4 nurses on the floor 8am to 8pm and 3 nurses in the night time.
A typical shift would be covered by three trained nurses and around 20 care assistants, complimented by ancillary staff including chefs, activity organisers, housekeeping, maintenance and administrative staff.
The home is fully committed to staff learning and development. There are some staff working towards their QCF qualifications and there are various monthly training courses available for staff development.
Medical care is provided by the local General Practitioner of the resident’s choice. The home has retainer GPs who visit weekly.
Referrals to specialist services and facilities can be arranged through the GP. Every six weeks we are visited by a chiropodist and other services can be arranged by appointment.
