Ashview Nursing Home

Ashview provided the most wonderful respite for my mother at a difficult time for her and her family. She had had a spell in hospital and was frail and confused. The staff at Ashview were the most compassionate and caring people that you could hope to have looking after an elderly person. Nothing was too much trouble for them. My mother soon settled in and blossomed with all the care that they provided. Sharon was wonderful in looking after us a a family too and whilst being utterly professional in all she did, was a warm and reassuring contact for us. I cannot recommend Ashview highly enough.

Ashview Nursing Home

I am Power of Attorney for my dear long standing friend of many years for her health/welfare who has dementia. After caring for her for many years in her own home it has now become necessary for her to have more care. After searching many homes, I'm so pleased to have found Ashview in a lovely countryside setting. It has such a warm and caring atmosphere with a lovely woodland garden for residents to use. The staff are all so attentive at all times and you can see they enjoy their work. They are truly dedicated to caring for their residents and making their lives happy and comfortable with many activities available. The food is very appetising and all home cooked which i have sampled myself! and thoroughly enjoyed my lunch of a delicious steak pie with home-made pastry and seasonal vegetable and delicious dessert all attentively served. I'm very impressed with the personal care plan which has enabled my friends to settle in and is reassuring for me. I've had regular updates on her also, and the first night they monitored her every two hours. Such a relief to know she is being so well cared for day and night, treating her like a member of the family. I would thoroughly recommend Ashview for their care and dedication, lovely home and setting and nutritious food.

Ashview Nursing Home

Ashview is a unique 18th-19th century house with a large garden, sited in a rural position with scenic views, on the edge of the village of Widford. Nearly five and a half years ago my mother needed full time care after living independently for many years. Ashview was chosen because of its relatively small size and its pleasant atmosphere. The staff has proved to be hardworking, cheerful and very caring towards the residents. They always offer a most friendly welcome to visitors as well. Residents' personal needs and preferences are well understood and respected and everyone is treated as an individual. Appetising meals are prepared on the premises and special requests are met. Nursing care is always available and there is easy access to the local GP, who is a regular visitor. Minor day to day emergencies are quickly attended to and relatives are always promptly informed of any problems. A visiting dentist and optician service call as does a hairdresser. Ashview has provided my mother with bright and homely surroundings in her latter years.

My mum has been a resident at Ashview for just over 2 years now and has been made to feel really welcome there - as have my husband and I whenever we visit her, which is very often! The staff are so friendly and caring - putting her makeup on for her and helping with feeding her when this became necessary. They always have a smile on their faces - even if they don't always feel like it - and we feel included in one big, close family unit whenever we are there. We have no complaints at all about Ashview or its staff.

Ashview Nursing Home

My mother has been at Ashview for three months now. She is there because she needs the nursing care beyond that which could be provided at home. What in my opinion is very good about this place is how they have been very flexible and accommodating to an elderly person who is very set in their ways and wants things just so, even perhaps if it isn't what may be best. They have not nagged at her but sought ways to encourage her to make better decisions whilst at the same time respecting her decisions but continuing to try new tactics to encourage better decisions. The security is good. The catering is very good. This is not institutional food. They are flexible re visiting times and its relaxed as opposed to regimented but the nicest thing is, in my opinion, I feel that so many of the staff genuinely care and they indulge residents eccentricities and occasionally difficult behavior with remarkable patience. This is a good place. Everywhere has areas they could improve, but having done quite a bit of research with my wife and see a lot of places before going here we did not see anything better and saw many that were far worse. If one was to criticize the place it is in the middle of nowhere, not absolutely everyone is perfect and their admin had some problems at the start but Janet (the manager) was very helpful in resolving this

I could not be happier with how well my 91 yr old Nan has settled at Ashview. The management and staff have really made an effort to make sure she feels at home. They also help create a very welcoming family atmosphere for visitors and everyone is made to feel very comfortable when visiting. Initially Nan was only there as a stop gap but she has settled so well that I intend to keep her there for the remainder of her years as she is so comfortable and relaxed.

My mother is very well cared for, beyond what I have been led to believe from reports in the popular press. She suffers from a very debilitating illness, Alzheimers and despite her frequent outbursts, she is shown the utmost respect and kindness. She is looked after by wonderful staff who appear to love their jobs and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them in their professional care of my mother.

Ashview Nursing Home

I can certainly recommend Ashview Nursing Home. The staff are always friendly and really do care for the residents. Recently one of the carers left to work in another home and she was in floods of tears as she had built up a very close relationship with the other staff and residents. The care is good and the home has a high level of staff staying therefore the quality of care is very high. The food is good too. With flexible menus. The recently family and friends BBQ was lovely. The home is always clean and tidy. Another great thing is the open visiting ie you can visit any time. My mum is still active and the staff really take time to get to know what makes each person tick. Yes, every now and then things go a little wrong but the staff are always determined to put things right. The garden is lovely and big. It's well looked after and is a welcome change for residents from the living room. They put on activities too. From drawing and exercise to day trips out. Hatfield House trip was very good. Oh, and they have a hairdresser on site too. Plus TV points in all rooms and a couple of computers for the residents. My advice is to book a visit, talk to the staff, all the staff and ask lots of questions. Hope this helps.
