Anu Godagama

General Manager

Hi, my name is Anu and I am the General Manager here at Ashby House. Welcome to our website!

I have been a registered nurse for nearly 20 years and I was previously a General Manager for a specialist neurological care service, with years of experience in mental health and rehabilitation.

As a General Manager, my aim is to ensure that, as a team, we continue to deliver person-centred care to those we support, placing residents at the heart of everything we do and meeting individual needs with the passion and commitment they deserve.

Mary Peak

Mary Peak

Resident Ambassador

I was born in Greenock Scotland in the 1920s, and I married my first husband on 12th May 1940. I Have 5 children and have lived in Milton Keynes for over 45 years. My family live here; we are very close and they visit all the time at Ashby.

Myself and my family are very happy with the care and atmosphere here at Ashby. I have settled in well here; the place is fresh, clean and inviting. I have made new friends here and lost some, but unfortunately, that’s life.

As the Resident Ambassador for Ashby, I get to meet new people, talk about the home and represent everyone's interests.
