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.

Gwen Agbeko

Deputy Manager

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

I am a very positive and resilient person and I am always looking for ways to improve both professional and personally. I have worked in care for quiet some time now and have lots of experience across different areas.

I joined Ashby as a Clinical Lead Nurse, then, within 4 months, I was promoted to Deputy Manager. It is my passion to support older people, especially those living with dementia, because no two days are the same. You have to put yourself in their world to be able to understand them.

I enjoy laughing, smiling, encouraging others and I am generally positive about life.

I ensure that the staff team is supervised and supported in every aspect of care, both clinical and otherwise. I am happy to find myself in an organisation with an excellent reputation, with care and compassion at the heart of all its services.

Anytime you're near us, please feel free to drop by for a chat.

Activities Coordinator

My name is Malwina and I joined Ashby House as an Activities Coordinator in June 2016. I originally worked nights, where I got to meet many lovely residents and, after one year, I began working day shifts. I quickly realised that this was something I am passionate about; spending time with residents and making sure that they have fun and enjoy themselves at Ashby House is very rewarding.

I enjoy creating themed decorations for special events and baking with residents. It fills me with joy to come to work every day. I believe that, with smiles on our faces, we can make a big difference to the world.
