The team

Our experienced and dedicated staff provide the highest standards of individual care and support to our residents.

Our manager

Ashley Court is run by Carol Morrison who was appointed Manager in January 2015. Having been the Deputy Manager since 2011, she is a well established member of staff. She is aided by a terrific team of registered nurses, carers and support staff.

 

Our team

As a nursing home, Ashley Court has a particularly high level of qualified staff, with nurses on duty 24 hours a day, providing peace of mind for residents and their families. Our care staff are equally committed; together nurses and support staff form a professional, compassionate team with the ability to make life fulfilling and full of laughter.

At Ashley Court we employ managerial and administrative staff as well as domestic, kitchen and ancillary staff. Carol leads a strong professional unit where every member of staff knows the name of every resident. We treat our residents with compassion, affection and above all, respect.

Expertise and continuity

Ashley Court meets National Care Standards, see our inspection report and this is in many ways due to the outstanding performance of our staff. Many have worked at Ashley Court for years, which provides essential continuity of care and contributes to the family atmosphere. The assignment of a named nurse and key worker to each resident ensures that individuals feel cared for, and we find that a single point of contact is helpful for families who want to know how their relative is faring and discuss any aspects of their care.

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.

    Elizabeth and Diana, daughters
