Louise Lambert

General Manager

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

I have been the General Manager since 2016 and I’m very proud to manage a fantastic, caring team. I worked within the NHS for 14 years and, when I left, I managed a nursing agency that covered the South East of England.

It is my job to ensure we run a caring and safe environment for our residents and that Ashcombe House is an enjoyable place for staff to work.

Please feel free to come and meet the team and have a look around our small and friendly home.

Administrator

I have been working at Ashcombe House since 2017. I originally joined as a care assistant before moving to the activities team, and now I am the home's administrator. 

Having had an admin background, this was an easy transition, and I still get to see all our lovely residents day-to-day. Some of them even like to help with making up our brochures and putting our newsletters in envelopes, which they seem to really enjoy.
