So what do some of the residents at Ashtonleigh think about the home?
I like doing puzzles with my friend when she visits. The carers are excellent, they do a lot of things for me. I'm having cooked meals now and at home I wouldn't only on a Sunday. The food is amazing.
I love it all, no other comment I just love it all.
People are always so friendly there is always a smile on their faces which makes life worth living.

I started working here a few months ago, its great to be part of such a hard working team and to be supported with any concerns that I have. It feels more like a family than it does a work place.
I only planned on being here for 6 months, and 4 years later I still love it here! The team are like a big dysfunctional family and the residents we support make it feel like a second home and family.
In the past two years, I have worked at Ashtonleigh the team I have worked with have become like a family to me. They have helped me to improve how I work and my confidence. While working as a great team that makes every day run smoothly. I have loved to work with such a variety of lovely resi-dents who have brighten up every day I have worked here. This place feels more like my home than a place I go to work.

Protection of our vulnerable residents is the most important thing for our home and thus we have installed the best life safety sprinkler system - where this may not be ascetically pleasing it is the equivalent to having a fireman in each of our bedrooms 24 hours per day. Fire alarms will only warn us about fires however the sprinkler system we have installed extinguishes the fire itself making the home safe for fires. Thus all the communal areas, newly renovated areas all have sprinklers installed and we hope to have sprinklers installed in the remaining rooms by the end of 2017.
