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.
Hello. I am Francesca.
I completed my nurse training ten years ago and I joined Barchester when I first qualified as a nurse. I have worked for other care providers since then but I felt drawn back to Barchester as I am supported to develop personally and professionally.
I really enjoy working at Ashby House and, as Deputy Manager, I am committed to supporting all our team members to achieve their full potential.
I always aim to carry out my role in collaboration with residents, their families and team members, to ensure residents live enriched and fulfilling lives, in a safe and happy environment. I strive to create a wondrous atmosphere and am truly grateful to residents’ families who constantly show their appreciation for our care of their loved ones.

Hi. I'm Emma Jane. I qualified as a nurse in 1998 and have a background of working in hospitals. I enjoy working in a care setting as I can engage with residents and do my best to meet all their needs. People say I am always happy and smiley. In my spare time I like to read, play tennis and spend time outdoors with family and friends.
Hello. I am Liza and I have many years' experience in general nursing. I like to focus on the individual health needs of residents, making sure everyone receives good care and timely treatment. I like to listen to their stories and concerns to make sure I really understand how I can best help people. I also ensure other team members are aware of the care plan and changing needs of each individual.
Hello. I am Lorna and I love my work as a nurse here at Ashby House. I enjoy speaking with residents and helping them to feel as well as they can. I feel proud to be part of this team where everyone plays their part in making everyday life enjoyable for residents.
Hello. I'm Fiona and I have worked at Ashby House since 2017, first as a Healthcare Assistant and then switching in November 2019 to the role of Activities Coordinator. I have a passion for working in the care sector and have gained experience of working in an activities role with a previous employer. I have always enjoyed being creative. The best thing about my work is that I can put a smile on people's faces and help them enjoy a variety of interests, old and new. When I’m not at work I love to read, listen to music, and do anything to do with history, especially visiting places of interest. I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle through exercise and healthy eating.
Sue has worked for Barchester since January 2004 and she has been at Ashby House since June 2010. Her role involves looking after the day to day running of the finances from sales to payroll, supporting the General Manager with the day to day running of Ashby House and supporting staff and relatives/residents within the home.
Hello. I'm Carol and I joined the Ashby House team in 2004. It is really important that I keep the home clean to keep it looking nice and minimise infection risks. It is also important that Ashby House is tidy, attractive and well organised so residents feel comfortable and relaxed. I get to know every resident, to understand how they like their room, their clothes and their personal belongings to be arranged. I enjoy my morning chats, getting to know residents as I clean their rooms.
Hello. I am Jeff and I keep the gardens tidy, safe and looking lovely for residents and their visitors to enjoy. I trained at Shuttleworth College and have experience of gardening at a holiday park and for Age Concern. I love being outdoors and working in this friendly environment. In my spare time I still like to be outdoors and I do lots of walking and cycling.
