Wojciech Kuczkowski

General Manager

Hello. I am Wojciech Kuczkowski, General Manager of Ashby House Care Home in Milton Keynes.

I always wanted to work in the care and health sector and am delighted to have joined Ashby House in 2020. I graduated from University in Gdansk in 2004 with a degree in Marketing and management. At that time I lived in Poland, but I realised that the world was my oyster and I moved to England in 2005 to gain new professional and personal experiences.

I have now worked in the care sector in England for 15 years, progressing through care roles and for the last nine years I have held management positions in elderly care, with a special interest in dementia care. I continued my professional development and hold a Level 4 Diploma in Health and social care and a Level 4 Diploma in Leadership and Management.

In my daily professional life I aim to serve people well and create a home where every resident and staff member feels happy, healthy and safe. I believe I have the skills and attributes to achieve work and personal goals, being empathic, determined, ethical and a good communicator. I look forward to serving Ashby House residents and welcoming new people - please contact me any time.

In my spare time I enjoy running and my dream is to take part in the world’s largest marathon one day, in New York.
