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.
