Rooms & Facilities

Accommodation

We have 50 single bedrooms, one double room and five suites, all with ensuite facilities. Each bedroom has a TV, telephone access and a nurse call system, for prompt assistance.

Recent refurbishments has meant that Ashley Court now offers a range of room sizes from standard, premium and deluxe all complete with either en-suites or wet floor facilities. Some of our newly refurbished rooms have a number of enhanced finishes including Porcelanosa ceramic en-suite tiling, Farrow & Ball paint and premium electrical brands. 

The bedrooms are arranged over three floors and each floor has a pantry, kitchen, lounge and other pleasant places to sit and socialise. On the ground floor our communal Rose Lounge is at the centre of Ashley Court life, with many of our activities taking place here as well as in the sunny conservatory.

Our garden is also a popular place to sit with a cup of tea, or for activities, weather permitting.

Facilities

At Ashley Court we enjoy being part of the local community in a building designed to blend into the lovely Morningside neighbourhood. Accessibility, light, fresh decor and outdoor space set us apart from many other nursing homes. 

Small group living

Our accommodation comprises 50 single bedrooms, and three luxury suites, with residents choosing which lounge and dining room they want to spend time in. This makes for a warm and homely atmosphere where residents can form friendships and meet regularly.

Home from home

Rooms can be personalised by the resident with their choice of wall colours and soft furnishings, and we encourage personal mementos and furniture, if space allows. As long as the layout gives us space to nurse in, we’ll do our best to make rooms as homely and familiar as possible.

Each bedroom has ensuite facilities There is a nurse call, TV (including Sky) and a telephone and Internet point in every bedroom, with WiFi available throughout the home.

Communal areas

Residents have access to comfortable lounges and public areas. The lounges have Sky TV including the sports and movies channels, perfect for those chilly winter days.

Our lounges can also double up as Ashley Court's own in-house cinema! We have a drop down cinema screen for movie nights and special sporting events, which is a hit with all of our residents!

All levels of the home are wheelchair friendly and accessible from two spacious lifts.

Our home has a beautiful garden with level stretches where residents can take a stroll. The spacious patio is the perfect place to simply sit and soak up the sun while enjoying a morning coffee.

Laundry

We understand that maintaining a sense of privacy and dignity is fundamental to enjoying life at Ashley Court. That’s why we take something as simple as laundry so seriously: fresh towels are supplied after each use and we label all clothes and make sure they are returned clean and pressed. 

Keeping up appearances

We have a hair salon in the home and regular visits by a hairdresser. We believe that looking your best is important, even more so for older people. 

Friends welcome

Friends and relatives are encouraged to visit as often as possible, and to make visitors welcome there are small kitchens so you can make your own tea and coffee. Staff are always on hand to assist when needed.

What our residents and their families say

  • Thank you so much for the care given to my parents. I could not have wished for a better home for them in their final months. Everyone has a smile and a kind word, and nothing is too much trouble. With my heart-felt thanks and best wishes to you all.

    Patricia, daughter

  • Thanks for all you did for mum in the months she was in Ashley Court. She found everyone very kind and helpful, as did I.

    Lucy, Joanne and Andre, children

  • People who visited commented as to how clean, bright and welcoming the home is. They also offered praise regarding staff, who they felt were far more professional when compared with their experiences elsewhere.

    In my opinion the service provided by Ashley Court is second to none.

    Daughter

  • The personal attention offered by staff was exemplary and ensured that my mother adjusted quickly to her new environment at a particularly difficult time in her life. The stress and confusion, which had arrived with her from hospital, disappeared, and she was then able to enjoy her last few months in an atmosphere of familiarity and security.

    Son

  • Although we worried frequently that we would be in your way when we spent so much time with dad, or that you would become fed up with all our queries and questions, you always made us welcome and were friendly and helpful. We are especially grateful for the faultless care you all provided, thank you.
