Ashby House Care Home in Milton Keynes
Ashby House is a residential care home that offers several different types of elderly care, including respite care for short breaks and permanent care for those who can no longer live at home. You can now pre-book respite stays up to a year in advance as well.
Set in a quiet corner of Milton Keynes, Ashby House is a short drive from many of the city’s famous landmarks, including Milton Keynes shopping centre, the theatre district and Stadium MK, home to the MK Dons. The home is situated close to the A428, 5 miles drive from junction 14 of the M1.
Ashby House not only offers residential and nursing care, but has a dedicated Memory Lane community, specialising in the care of residents living with dementia and other related conditions. We are very excited to have made some major changes to our Memory Lane Community, creating two smaller units, allowing residents at different stages of their dementia journey to live together in a more homely and cosy environment. We have added a 'life skills' kitchen, enabling residents to participate in some basic cooking and day-to-day tasks, such as washing and drying up.
Ashby House also has a varied and exciting social calendar and we are always ready to celebrate any occasion. Our hospitality includes first class dining, with all meals cooked on the premises using locally produced, fresh ingredients.
We warmly welcome visitors, so if you’d like to arrange a viewing of the home, or to find out more about the services that we offer at Ashby House, please contact our General Manager, or one of our lovely team members, who would be delighted to help.
We look forward to meeting you.

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.Get in touch Meet my team
