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.
I have worked with the elderly since I was just 16 years old and I qualified as a nurse in 2015, specialising in elderly nursing.
I enjoy working in the care sector, as no two days are ever the same, and Ashcombe House has a home from home feel, which I just love
When I have spare time, I enjoy traveling, hiking and spending time with family.
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.
I’m a fun, loud and outgoing individual who loves organising fun activities for residents at Ashcombe House (and staff, if possible). I’m very creative and keep the residents very active, both mentally and physically In my spare time, I love doing a lot of fundraising, which usually ends up with me sliding in mud.
I have been a chef for over 25 years, working in hotels, schools and restaurants. I have a passion for food and take great pride in my work.
I love working at Ashcombe, as it ticks all my boxes to allow me to have a great work-life balance, whilst still being able to produce high quality, home-cooked meals
In my spare time, I like to collect Leg, spend time with my family and I love to go to concerts.
Before joining Ashcombe, I worked a self-employed wall and tiler for 28 years. I just love DIY and being around people and helping others. In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, sea fishing, walking and swimming.
Head Housekeeper, Juliana, can be seen with her housekeeping team: Khim, Agness, Irs and Naanda. They all love working at Ashcombe House, ensuring that they maintain a clean environment for residents. They are a friendly and happy team who love their jobs. They enjoy getting to know the residents and always spend time chatting to them whilst they are cleaning the home.
Here at Ashcombe, we have a friendly care team who are committed to delivering the highest standards of care to those we support. We have a real family feel here and enjoy working together to make living with us fun and comfortable.
