Both my mother-in-law & my friend's mother-in-law were happy, contented, valued, well cared for residents. Personal attention to the very end with a highly caring hands-on owner. Now my close colleague has had her mother living at Ash Lodge for the past few years & mainly due to the excellent care, good food & relaxed homely atmosphere, she celebrates her centenary next week, 100 & not out yet! A well deserved congratulations go to the staff members, we shall all be there for the party!
