A shared passion for
unrivalled care

Care is at the centre of our passion

Our understanding developed over many years, is centred on individual needs and investment in the relationships we build with family and friends. At Ashton Lodge we know that creating an accessible welcoming community founded on knowledge, understanding and innovation, delivers an environment that is conducive for not just residents to find positivity, empathy and exceptional levels of care, we offer reassurance and comfort to you too.

Ashton Lodge is not just about residential care, it is a place that we all share and we are here to make you welcome. Residents are encouraged to be active and do what they want to do when they want, no day is prescriptive, a happy, relaxed home is our core passion.


At Ashton Lodge we take admissions from a range of situations, our diverse skills can support those who need respite, rehabilitation, general long term care or more complex dementia and mental health needs. These also include placement breakdowns (which might originate in their own home or other care environment).

Pre admission assessments take place in advance of admission, working closely with local authorities and families to ensure that there is an understanding of where a person will best fit, our teams are very much included in this process to aid as smooth a transition as possible should the placement be made.

Specialist dementia care

Our high-level staffing ratio, is led by Registered Nurses (RGN & RMN) supported by highly trained skilled practitioners giving specialist care around the clock. Staff are trained to offer a supportive non-confrontational, calm approach that manages behaviours, delivering a consistent approach to the needs of each individual, that helps to prevent anxiety.

Where challenging behaviour may impact, our response to a situation be it an internal or external anxiety is to utilise our skills to reduce distress through appropriate diagnosis of conditions, and an understanding of resolving situations that may create disorientation or frustration for individuals. We always seek to manage the underlying cause of a problem, rather than simply dealing with the response.

Each resident will have a bespoke programme created to make every resident living with dementia at Ashton Lodge feel safe and secure. Working closely with doctors, our practitioners will often review medications and reduce levels in order to make every resident feel at ease, maintaining dignity and self-esteem.

Respite – helping you live with dementia

In situations where families are looking after their loved ones at home, we can provide respite to support circumstances where a break is much needed, giving loved ones a rest, especially if they are caring for an elderly partner.

The process can also encourage confidence in transitioning to Ashton Lodge on a longer term basis, knowing how the system works for both parties can be an immense relief.

Your peace of mind

Our care extends to you – We understand how hard a move away from the family network can be, regardless of whether you are a family working out your needs together or for those that are in crisis and don’t know where to turn for specialist care, we are here to support you.

We are here to sustain the needs of every family or individual who comes to us, we work together, through sensitive collaboration that helps us gain an understanding of unique needs. From an initial assessment and evaluation, to maintaining a continued dialogue we work together so there is continued understanding and support as care needs change over time.

It is important for us to obtain feedback from residents, their families or representatives about the care they are receiving and ensuring each bespoke care plan is leveraged to the highest standard.

Our Care Ethos

Person centred care is at the heart of all we do, we all have individual qualities and our care is centred on a dedicated team that reflects each individual’s needs. We see the person not the condition and respect and get to know the people we share our home with.

We see our residents time with us as the next chapter in their life, and we promote independence where possible. We are an extension of your family and here not just for our residents but also those nearest and dearest.
