Hello. I am Francesca and I am the General Manager here at the home.
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 as Deputy Manager and now General Manager and 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.Get in touch Meet my team
