I was living next door to Madge, we were good friends, I miss her so much. I am so happy with the care she got, the staff are so kind and helpful. I am so happy with this home.

Ashbrooke Care Centre

My Mum was a resident here from 2009 to 2014 when she passed away. Living overseas I had to place a huge amount of trust in the staff at the care home chosen for my Mum. I visited every year and spent a lot of time in Ashbrooke. I found the staff absolutely amazing, they were all caring and compassionate and every one from the Manager to the cleaning staff gave personal individualised care. I always felt confident that Mum would be looked after in the way I hoped and had great communication with the Ashbrooke staff on an ongoing basis. I cannot thank them enough and recommend everyone there.

On first visiting the care home I was thoroughly impressed with the whole set up. When my mother first moved in she was put on the first floor, but as a few months went by the manager and staff suggested she would be far better suited downstairs which is more residential. This has proved correct as my mother is much happier and responsive in every way. This is due to the fantastic care she receives. I cannot praise the home and staff enough.

My mother came here in November 2012. She was underweight, within no time she was gaining weight, was no longer smoking and her health and mental well being had greatly improved. I think the staff treat my mother with dignity and respect. They have a great selection of daily activities everyone enjoys! I would recommend Ashbrooke highly and have done so in the past.
